Pumpkin Smash

Pumpkin Smash

At the end of our Pumpkin Season each year Mainstay Farm holds a fun event called "Pumpkin Smashing Saturday." Come and watch us smash some of our leftover pumpkins. For this event we built a high-speed pumpkin zip-line that launches from a 40-foot water tower. It delivers pumpkins at a high rate of speed for a head-on collision into a barrier: Zzzzzzz…SPLATTT. What is it about dropping and catapulting melons that give humans such inner joy? We’re not sure either but we know it does.
