I have a unique product to show you – Hand-Painted Artisan Pumpkins at Harvest Barn Country Markets.
I got this beautifully rendered, artistic pumpkin for my outdoor, Fall display, from my local Harvest Barn Country Market in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

You have to look closely to really appreciate the detail – eyes within more bloodshot eyes, warts, fangs, creepy nostrils and bags under the eyes, and even a third eye on the forehead. Do check her out to see Susan’s various artistic endeavors online at:
Seeing the grouping of various painted pumpkins by Susan at Harvest Barn is such a sight to see…all sorts of scary faces, cats & even Happy Halloween & Welcome Fall messages on the pumpkins is just so interesting & fun.
The artwork on these impressive, Ontario pumpkins is amazing, and very unusual. The outstanding colors used, and details, are very beautiful. Since you can use these hand-painted pumpkins for your Halloween Jack-O’-Lanterns, no candles are used, and there is no charring of the pumpkin flesh.
Since the pumpkin is left in safe, edible condition, you can comfortably use the pumpkin flesh to make pumpkin purees for pumpkin pies, pumpkin soups, pumpkin lattes and many other food purposes, as you desire. Check out my shows:
These artisan pumpkins would also make delightful centerpieces for your dining room or kitchen tables during this festive season.
You can find amazing, fresh produce stock, as well as a wide variety of high quality, other food products at Harvest Barn Country Markets in both Niagara-on-the-Lake & in St. Catharines, in southern Ontario. Online, you can find them at:
Harvest Barn Country Markets, make it a priority, wherever possible, to bring in their fresh produce and other food products from within a 100 mile radius of their two locations. This has a beneficial affect on their carbon footprint, and the fresh produce isn’t subjected to as much damage and bruising, as when it comes in from long distances.
It also allows for harvesting of fresh fruit and vegetables, when they are ripe and full of optimal flavor, instead of being harvested while still green, so they have to ripen in transit, or on the shelf. The fruit sugars do not develop fully, when picked green.
By adhering to their 100 mile policy, they are supporting local farmers, making it possible for our farmers to maintain their farms, and continue supplying our food needs. Local vendors also benefit from this policy, making it feasible to improve their products and continue bringing new products to market for Harvest Barn customers.
You will enjoy displaying something unique on your front porch during the Autumn months and Halloween, when you stop in at Harvest Barn Country Markets, and take home a couple hand-painted artisan pumpkins by Susan Dupont Baptista.
