St. Thomas’ opened our first Pumpkin Patch in 2008. It’s an amazing outreach project that does good at every level. Our pumpkins are grown and harvested on Navajo reservation land in Northern New Mexico, bringing economic growth to that community. ALL proceeds from our patch are donated to these local charities. Then, when the patch is over, any pumpkins we don’t sell are donated to help feed the animals at Rikki’s Refuge (a no-kill animal sanctuary located in Orange, VA).
The St Thomas Pumpkin Patch will open on Sunday, October 8th 2023.
NEW 2023 OPENING HOURS: Mon – Fri: 12PM – 6 PM. Sat & Sun: 10AM – 6PM
If you are an 8th grader looking for 3 hours of community service hours – please sign up to help unload pumpkins!
Our 2023 unloading will be Saturday October 7th at 2:45PM-5:30PM (unloading starts at 3PM).
Unloading is rain or shine. Mask are optional and welcome indoors.
