Located in Upstate New York, in the historic town of Richfield Springs, the Shypski family farm was established in 1953, as a dairy. In 1985, our father, planted a crop of pumpkins, purely as a hobby, to compliment his sweet corn business. In 1987, he sold the cattle and focused on crop farming with hay and pumpkins as the primary crops. Always looking for another seed to plant, greenhouses were put up, flowers started blooming and were then sold at retail.
As we took on lives of our own away from the family farm, we still had the love of farming lingering in our blood. We continue to gather at the farm in the spring to prepare the fields and start the seeds in the greenhouses. Around Memorial Day the pumpkin plants are planted in the fields where we will help Mother Nature nurture them until fall. This year we will have over 30,000 plants covering a total of 20 acres.
The Cullen Pumpkin Farm will welcome the fall season with a variety of pumpkins. We invite you to come and choose your perfect pumpkin from our displays or enjoy the ever popular “pick your own” from the thousands in the fields.
To aid you in your fall decorating we also will be offering a variety of gourds, squash, indian corn, and corn stalks.
See you in the fall!
Tom, Richard and John Shypski
