Pumpkins from the Upchurch family farm in Cary are a bit bigger this year.
Workers planted larger varieties of pumpkins, said William Upchurch, who runs the farm that has been in operation since the mid- to late-1800s. Some weigh between 65 and 85 pounds, he said, and some might top the 100-pound mark.
By the end of the month, the farm will start selling the pumpkins. It’s all on the honor system – people can stop by the farm at 2002 Carpenter Upchurch Road, pick out a pumpkin on display and leave the money in a box.
