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 is now open. Every day through October 31st.
NEW 2023 OPENING HOURS: Mon – Fri: 12PM – 6 PM. Sat & Sun: 10AM – 6PM
Thank you to the 100+ 8th graders who helped unload our pumpkin truck!
What do we do with our leftover pumpkins? We donate them to Rikki’s Refuge, a non-kill large animal sanctuary in Orange, VA. We will reload our leftover pumpkins on Saturday November 4th starting at 10AM.
Reloading is rain or shine. Mask are optional and welcome indoors.
