Country Pumpkins was founded in 2000 by the Colson and Pennington families as a simple pumpkin sales business with an honesty box by the road. By 2009 it had grown into a complete Fall Festival and Fall Tour operation.
Our farm, Alpine Hills Dairy Farm, was established in 1947 in Corinth, KY by Papaw Joe Colson when he purchased his first few Brown Swiss Cows from Illinois. The farm is now relocated to Dry Ridge and owned by Papaw Joe’s son, Dean, and Dean's wife, Debbie. While they are no longer milking commercially as of a couple years ago, they are still milking a smaller herd and selling the milk directly from the farm as part of their cow share program. For more information on how to buy milk, call Dean at 859-242-0635.
Country Pumpkins is a family business run by Dean and Debbie Colson along with their son Matthew and his wife Shelley. We look forward to meeting you and sharing our beautiful farm with you this fall!
