2022 Pumpkin patch at pluckemin church

They're beautiful to look at, fun to carve into magical creations for Halloween and their arrival at Pluckemin Presbyterian Church signals all things fall.  But did you know that our supplier, Pumpkin Patch Fundraisers, in cooperation with the Navajo Nation in New Mexico, grows 1,200 acres or approximately 2 square miles of pumpkins and employs over 700 Native Americans during the harvest months of September and October? They also have a full time off-season staff that is comprised of entirely Native Americans. This has a positive and lasting impact on a region with 42% unemployment.  When you purchase a pumpkin, you're not just getting a fun decoration, you're helping the Navajo and Pluckemin Presbyterian Church at the same time.  A portion of the proceeds come back to the church for community outreach. 

The Patch is open daily from October 9-31 from 12:00pm - 6:00pm. 

Fall festival and trunk & treat

The Pluckemin Presbyterian Church (PPC), located at 279 Route 202-206 in Pluckemin, is excited to invite the community to a “Fall Festival and Trunk & Treat” event on the church grounds on Sunday, October 23rd, from 1-5pm (rain date October 30th).  Entry is free.  In addition to the annual Trunk & Treat, this year’s event will include a bounce house (sponsored by Gus & Bucky’s Car Wash and BMW of Bridgewater), a balloon artist, games, a vendor market, a classic car display, food for purchase and music. A special appearance by the Batmobile is also planned! While you’re there, purchase the perfect pumpkin at the Pumpkin Patch!

The church’s central location in the village of Pluckemin makes it an ideal spot for an event such as this. Bring your family, friends and neighbors and enjoy some wholesome family fun while supporting local vendors and craftspeople. A portion of the pumpkin sale proceeds will benefit the church’s outreach ministries. Be sure to stop by the church “Welcome Table” where church members will be available to answer questions and  provide more information about Pluckemin Presbyterian Church!  We hope to see you there!
