A church in Grand Forks has set up its very own pumpkin patch with some unusual pumpkins.

A church in Grand Forks has set up its very own pumpkin patch with some unusual pumpkins.

Zion United Methodist Church has brought in about 1,600 pumpkins and gourds grown in the sands of New Mexico.

Everyone is invited to the pumpkin patch. The money raised helps the church's mission projects.

The annual pumpkin patch raised $2,200 last year.

"I know they had gone to an Indian Reservation in South Dakota and they helped to paint, and rebuild some homes, and clean up some lots, and mow and just do a lot of random good will work," church member Amanda Loiland said.

The pumpkin patch is open every day in October. The pumpkins have suggested prices, but everything is a free will donation.
