Virginia pumpkins come in a variety of shapes and colors, from the traditional orange jack-o-lantern to white, blue, green, peachy-tan and striped varieties. Many growers also offer gourds, straw, corn fodder, Indian corn and mini pumpkins, as well as baked goods and prepared foods. Many Virginia farms offer something even more exciting along with pumpkins: a day on the farm where you can pick a pumpkin, take a hayride, navigate through the corn maze, pet the farm animals, ride a pony or launch a pumpkin from the cannon or catapult.
