    What I am looking for is a farm that has giant pumpkins?? As a child, my father would take my sister and I to pick out the biggest pumpkin we could find at a local pumpkin farm that grew giant pumpkins. We would often come home with a pumpkin between 200 and 300 lbs!! This is a tradition I want to continue with my boys. I need suggestions though for farms in Cincinnati area that have them! Help!!

      I was just at Neltner’s Farm this past weekend and they had some big ones… not sure they were THAT big, but I wouldn’t have been able to carry them!
