Nationwide Pumpkin Shortage Not a Concern at Dehn’s in Dayton
Farmers at Dehn’s Pumpkins in Dayton anticipated half the crop they normally have because of the drought, but instead are celebrating a fruitful season. The farm is full of pumpkins and a variety of fun gourds.
“We’ve got heavier dirt so water stays in the ground longer,” explained John Dehn.”We have heavier ground, so we’re not in the sand. People in the sandy ground need to irrigate throughout the summer if they don’t get rain.”
The 30-acre pumpkin patch is open daily through October. Besides picking your own pumpkins, you can also find hay rides, a slide and pedal tractors.
