Pumpkinland

An annual trip to Pumpkinland has been a family tradition for generations of Delaware Valley residents.

Details

50th Anniversary of Pumpkinland - 2021!

Linvilla matriarch, Peg Linvill (1930-2018), created a harvest display which was awarded first place at Philadelphia Horticultural Society's Harvest Show held at Fairmount Park’s Memorial Hall in 1971. That display was returned to the family farm and was set up in the pumpkin sales area.  This was the beginning of what we have come to know as Pumpkinland!

For fifty years, the larger-than-life figures and scarecrows on display have illustrated the legends and lore of the harvest season, featuring local history and some of the many stories of pumpkins and apples.

In 1985, again with the guidance of Peg Linvill, the staff off Linvilla created “Peggy Ann” the World’s Largest Rag Doll in the Guinness Book of World’s Records! Visitors of all ages have delighted in seeing Peggy Ann and the other amazing creations in Pumpkinland each year.

The displays you see are hand-made each year by the incredible crew of Linvilla’s Art Department, which is now headed by Nancy Linvill Dole, Peg’s daughter.

What to know

No timed tickets or pre-registration is required if you are just coming out to purchase a pumpkin in Pumpkinland, shopping in our Market or Garden Center or visiting the Animals - you are welcome to come on out!

Pumpkinland is open from mid-September through early November and takes center stage at Linvilla Orchards. Larger than life figures and scarecrows illustrate the legends and lore of the harvest season, featuring local history and some of the many stories of pumpkins and apples.

See our piles of pumpkins in all colors, shapes and sizes — over 100 tons on display! We do not do Pick Your Own pumpkins at Linvilla.  Our Pumpkins are pre-harvested. Find a huge selection of straw bales, corn shocks, toys and fall decorations of all kinds.

This year we will continue with tickets for our daytime activities (see below) as well as our Autumn Moon, Harvest, and Witch's Hayrides to help better accommodate the number of visitors throughout the day. Tickets are required for ages 1 and older.  11 months and under are complimentary.

Test your navigation skills in our straw bale and cornfield mazes and Pick Your Own fall apples. Grab some candy and caramel apples and see the Linvilla jack-o-lantern exhibit!

For sanitary reasons, we will not have our face boards available for photos this fall.
