Celebrate Pumpkins: A New England Tradition

It’s that time of year, at least here in western Massachusetts, when “the frost is on the pumpkin.” The days are still fairly warm, but the nights are getting mighty cool. Cool enough to start the wood stove.

There’s still plenty of time to get a wood stove for the winter and a couple of cords of wood. There’s also still time to come and enjoy the fall foliage in western, Massachusetts and to pick up pumpkins for Halloween.

Our neck of the woods knows pumpkins. If you take a drive down the scenic route 5&10 from Northampton to Greenfield, you’ll pass by numerous roadside stands selling pumpkins, apples, cider, maple sugar, and Autumn produce like squash and turnips.

We not only know pumpkins, we CELEBRATE PUMPKINS. Our good pals in Whately, near the scenic route 5&10, will be hosting their 21st annual festive pumpkin carving party this month.

And on Columbus Day weekend we here at the Good Time Stove Company hosted our annual pumpkin party, complete with a delicious potluck supper, live music, and dozens of carved, candled-filled pumpkins that lit up the gardens.
See some photos of the fun below. Click Here for Pictures of the Party!

So why not come on by for a visit, pick out an antique stove to keep you warm this winter, and a couple of pumpkins to celebrate the season. We’d certainly love to show you our collection of stoves – and carved pumpkins.
