Great Pumpkin Rising for Meadowbrook Farm’s Fall Open House


Visitors celebrating the season at Meadowbrook Farm’s upcoming Fall Open House will encounter a natural wonder: a 500-pound (and growing) pumpkin!

Brandon Huber, a Philadelphia International Flower Show blue-ribbon winner, Temple University student and Meadowbrook Farm employee, is carefully nurturing this great pumpkin before he enters it in the Pumpkin Madness Festival at Delaware Valley College on Oct. 9.

Join us Sept. 25 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Meadowbrook Farm Open House, 1633 Washington Lane, Meadowbrook (Abington Township), Pa. 19046. Meadowbrook Farm, a garden center and gift shop, is an affiliate of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. Visitors can see the pumpkin by taking a hayride during the Open House.

Enjoy the grounds and autumn décor of this historic estate garden and nursery as well as shop for great seasonal plants and gifts. A children’s activity, hayrides, refreshments (popcorn and cider), gardening lectures, and tours of the estate house and private gardens — all free– will also be available.
