Recycle Your Pumpkins at Alstede Farms!
This year, instead of throwing your pumpkins away, we are asking local residents to recycle their pumpkins back to Alstede Farms. In an effort to reduce greenhouse gases, we will utilize these pumpkins for composting purposes on our farm.
For each large pumpkin donated, over 10lbs, you will receive one (1) free entry ticket for Pick Your Own apples or a 10% coupon to use in the farm store. Each entry ticket for Pick Your Own will give you access to the PYO fields, corn maze, tractor-drawn wagon rides, hay pyramid, and evergreen maze. The cost of the apples that would be picked would be charged based upon the size of the container you wish to purchase. The option of container size would be: 5lb box, 10lb box or large 25lb box.
The free entry for Pick Your Own must be used during the month of November when our Pick Your Own activities are open. Please see website for dates available in November. The 10% coupon is limited to in-store purchases and must be used by the end of the 2021 year. Other restrictions would apply.
The hours for recycling pumpkins would be the same as our Pick Your Own hours. Recycled pumpkins would be dropped off in the bin near the Pick Your Own entrance. Once the pumpkins are dropped off, simply stop by the Pick Your Own sheds to retrieve your coupon. Pumpkins must not be painted or sprayed with any chemicals prior to recycling at the farm.
