Pumpkin Competition

Summer Fun Pumpkin Competition!

We have for sale in the farm gate 100 limited edition Atlantic Giant Pumpkin seedlings. These pumpkins are not for eating, they’re for competing! We want to know which of our lovely customers can beat Farmer Richard in growing the biggest pumpkin!

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Come in store and buy a pumpkin seedling for $8 (remember, we only have 100, so be quick!)
  2. Complete the entry form below (make sure you’ve purchased your pumpkin first)
  3. Plant your seedling at home, water and take special care of it all summer long
  4. Once they flower, pick the one that you want to turn into your winning pumpkin and cut the others off the plant (otherwise they’ll steal the nutrition your big pumpkin needs to get huge!)
  5. Keep a photo diary, and keep us posted on Insta, using the hashtag #hawkespumpkincomp
  6. Whoever who brings in heaviest pumpkin on or before Easter Sunday will get a $150 vegie box and have the honour of entering the Hawkes Hall of Fame for growing the biggest pumpkin. And everyone who beats Farmer Richard will get a 10kg bag of Sebago potatoes
  7. Once grown, as these are not eating pumpkins, you are welcome to bring them back to the farm for us to feed to our friend Crackles the pig from The Ranch
