It's that time of the year where we start to think of the fall season, and for many, that means heading to a local farm to pick out pumpkins. 

"We are definitely going to have a pumpkin crop this year, there are pumpkins out there, but we did lose some of it," said Rick Molnar of Molnar Farms.

Molnar says about an acre of their nine acres of pumpkins got washed out from this spring's rain. Molnar says between the excessive spring rain and dry stretch, it was hard for the farm to grow as many pumpkins compared to previous years.

"Enough moisture in the soil but yet dry enough that they can get out of the ground without the seed rotting, which was what a lot of this was from, and then they need consistent rain throughout the summer," Molnar said. 

At Detwiler Farm in Columbiana, they had overall an average year as far as the pumpkin crop went, but one of the big savers to this year's crop was soil type.

Detwiler Farms grows ten acres and around 15 to 20 varieties of pumpkins on its property. The larger pumpkins fared much better than some of the smaller varieties. 

"Small gourds, those kind of things, didn't come up quite as good. The only thing I can attribute is that those seeds are smaller than regular pumpkin seeds and maybe they couldn't handle the stresses of the weather when they were first planted," says Sam Detwiler. 

Detwiler adds, between the slight shortage locally and across the Midwest, early estimates point to an increase in pumpkin prices this year.
