About David Bowman Pumpkins

We are Europe's largest pumpkin producer. From our farm near Spalding in Lincolnshire, we grow and sell several million pumpkins each year to supermarkets in the UK, and to other suppliers across Europe.
The company has a purpose built facility with a temperature controlled storage area and packhouse in an easily accessible out of town location. The facility was built in 1997 and has been extended several times to cope with demand.

Over the years, the company has supplied thousands of pumpkins for display events in Paris, and also supplies for the Spalding Pumpkin Festival, a major local event.
Originally, the company grew several different vegetables, including marrows, courgettes and red cabbage. Towards the end of the 1990s however, with the construction of the new site, pumpkins became the main product. We do, however, grow small quantities of various squash varieties.
