Pumpkin Feeding

“Who doesn’t like to smash a pumpkin?”

It’s that time of the year: the sad pumpkins who didn’t get carved had to go somewhere and luckily, we had a few animals for the job.

“Everything really, really enjoys the pumpkins,” agriculture teacher Joanna Farmer said.

Everyone except the bunnies. Even the chickens got a hold of some of it. But the pumpkins act as more than just a tasty treat for them.

“They’re actually really good for the animals and act as a natural de-wormer for them,” Farmer explained.

Don’t forget if you have any more pumpkins the animals will be more than happy to take them off of your hands.

“We would love to have more pumpkins as the season goes on,” Farmer said. “If anyone has pumpkins or straw bales they don’t want, we’ll put them out with the animals.”
