Our vendor exercises sustainable agricultural practices. They implement crop rotation to limit the need for insecticides and use cover crops to prevent soil erosion and limit the need for herbicides. These responsible agricultural practices mean that we provide a great product, which has less of an impact on the environment. All our pumpkins are non-GMO.
In cooperation with the Navajo Nation, Pumpkin Patch Fundraisers now grow 1,200 acres of pumpkins and employ over 700 Native Americans during the harvest months of September and October. PPF also has a full time off-season New Mexico staff that is comprised entirely of Native Americans. This has a positive and lasting impact on a region with 42% unemployment.
Proceeds from this annual fundraiser benefit our adult, youth, and children's ministries, which in turn allows us to continue our well-documented support of local missions. For information on Foundation's supported missions, please don't hesitate to contact our church office at 254-780-9673.
We are grateful for your support and thrilled to be a part of your family's fall tradition.
