Bringing Art to Life

Sixty Seconds with Judi

I guess you all know that Pumpkinland opened last weekend. Many of you showed up to see the splendor and creativity that sets us apart from any other farm. Thousands will walk through Pumpkinland searching for their favorite characters, like Cinderella, Dracula or the Jersey Devil displayed prominently on the hill. But, what you don’t know or probably even think about is the time, effort and artistic genius that goes behind every character, pumpkin, and beautiful display you see on the farm.

What you may not know is that Linvilla Orchards is blessed to have the best Art Department in the world! Okay, I may be a little biased but, if you have ever seen them create their magic and see the materials they create them with- you would be amazed. Our Art Department is headed by Nancy Linvill Dole. Her vision and creative genius guides and inspires her staff of brilliant artists. You will find Donna, Sam and Shiho building giant scarecrows, stuffing giant pumpkins, or giving Peggy Anne, our beloved rag doll, a makeover. Each of these artists put their love into every huge flower, little cottage, or Dracula’s coffin. Each is a master carpenter, brilliant painter, or skilled sculptor.

What you see in Pumpkinland was planned and handcrafted with you in mind. So as you walk through Pumpkinland choose your favorite pumpkin, read our funny tombstones, choose your favorite character and think about our brilliant artists who bring Art to Life for you!
