The Epiphany Church of Walpole, Mass., is holding its annual Pumpkin Patch daily through October 31, 2021, at 62 Front St., across from the Walpole Town Common. Hours of operation: Monday through Friday, 12 noon. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Every year, up to 3,000 pumpkins arrive in a huge truck that will have traveled to Walpole from the Navajo Indian Reservation in Farmington, N.M.! Pumpkins saturating the lawns at this quaint, historic Walpole church and its rectory (only 18 miles from Boston) is not only an amazing New England autumn sight but also a sure-fire way to pick the perfect pumpkin.

The Pumpkin Patch also serves to help those in need. Three-fourths of the proceeds are returned to the Navajo Reservation to help the Native American reservation allocate much-needed funding for education, job training and basics for necessary everyday living.
