Roberts Family Farm to host growers, spectators at sanctioned event 

BRANDENBURG, Ky. ­­– The Giant Pumpkin Commonwealth and Kentucky Giant Pumpkin Growers Association announced Monday that Kentucky’s giant pumpkin and watermelon weigh off will be held at the Roberts Family Farm in Guston.

The event, dubbed The Giant Pumpkin Pursuit is set for Sept. 17. It will attract growers from up to seven states to compete, and promised provide an array of fall family fun.  

“We are thrilled to host an official weigh in event in Meade County,” said Carole Logsdon, director of Meade County Tourism. “It’s an opportunity to welcome new visitors to Meade County, and it’s sure to be a fun event for everyone. 

Activities include pumpkin carving, pumpkin drops, sling shot pumpkin games, photo opportunities and food, including an on-site bakery.

 In addition to the Roberts Family Farm and Meade County Tourism, event organizers include the Meade County Cooperative Extension and Meade County’s own giant pumpkin and watermelon grower Frank Mudd.

 Mudd, a Flaherty resident, has grown Kentucky’s largest watermelon multiple times.

“I just love to do this,” Mudd said. “I’m kind of an outside person, and it’s fascinating to watch both watermelon and pumpkins grow so rapidly,” he said.

Rhonda Roberts said her family is honored that the farm was selected for the event. The farm has provided fall activities such as hayrides, a corn maze and a pumpkin patch for 16 years.

“Quality time for families and bringing people together is what we’re all about, and this event is going to extend that,” she said.

 First prize for pumpkins is $1,000 and first prize for watermelons is $500. The growers of the top 10 pumpkins and top five watermelons will earn prize money.
