Gourds, Gourds, Gourds!

Fresh gourdsgourds

We grow small and large gourds for decoration and crafts.

The gourds are harvested in the field and dried in the greenhouse for approximately a year.

We keep a supply of gourds for craft projects that include everything from carving to birdhouses made from gourds.

Once the gourds are dried they are scrubbed clean. Gourds can be cleaned in water with a hand metal scrubber, much as you would use for cleaning dishes.

The process is simple but can be time consuming.

A clean gourd is a mottled tan color.

Give us a call for your gourd craft needs. Generally we have all sorts of gourds for sale.
