COLUMBUS (WCMH) — It may not feel like fall but according to the calendar it is officially pumpkin season.
Local farms across central Ohio are ready for visitors including Jacquemin Farms.
They have an abundance of pumpkins ready to be carved, eaten and decorated.
“I love growing these things. When it comes to September we grow 10-20 acres of these pumpkins and you buy the seed and you stick it in the field and it’s like Christmas in September,” said Kerry Sullivan, owner of Jacquemin Farms.
They also sell a pink pumpkin that not only looks special but has a bigger purpose.
“It’s called the porcelain doll pumpkin and at the end of every season, you keep track,” said Sullivan. “I’ll sign a waiver that I will donate some money per pumpkin that will go towards breast cancer research.”
