What to do with old pumpkins in Virginia? Donate them to pigs!

Do you have leftover pumpkins and gourds sitting around from the holidays and have no idea what to do with them? Rather than throw them out or put them in a compost pile, why not consider donating them to our rescued pigs at Piggins and Banks!

If you live close by in Virginia / West Virginia / Maryland / Washington D.C., we accept drop-off donations of old pumpkins and still in-tact Jack-o-lanterns. Pumpkins are a “super food” for pigs full of nutritious vitamins that make for a wonderful healthy snack.

We are part of the Pumpkins for Pigs network which helps match local rescues and sanctuaries with people looking to donate pumpkins.
