Fall Favorites: Sweet Potatoes and Pumpkins

Autumn is an eventful and enjoyable season, especially here in the foothills of North Carolina. County fairs, caramel apples, crisp fall leaves, captivating fall crops and cozy evenings in are some of the best things about Fall! Two crops we love enjoying during Fall are Sweet Potatoes and Pumpkins.

 Armstrong Artisan Farms Pumpkins from Walnut Cove

For Autumn, we have tons of fresh locally grown Pumpkins from Armstrong Artisan Farms located in Walnut Cove. We have a variety of sizes and styles to choose from, ranging from $3-$9  per pumpkin, depending on size. Pumpkins are beautiful decoration for your porch or business, can be made into a plethora of delicious foods and beverages, and can be used for making funny faced Jack-o-Laterns!
