Farmers Growing Pink Pumpkins For Breast Cancer Awareness

E and J Stephenson Farms via

Brooklyn Park, MN (WIBX) – The Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation is hoping to add a new color to the fall palette – pink.

The group is inspiring farmers to grow pink pumpkins for fall instead of the more traditional orange gourds.  In addition to providing some interesting fall decor, the pink pumpkins open up even more fun Halloween decorating opportunities, all in an effort to raise awareness about breast cancer.

One farmer, Bert Bouwman of Brooklyn Park, Minnesota planted fifteen thousand “porcelain doll” seeds this past year and is now selling – and shipping them – around the country.

The organization says there are more than fifty farmers who are participating in the campaign this year.  As part of their campaign promise each has pledged to donate twenty-five cents for each pumpkin sold to breast cancer research.
