Becky said that the pumpkin’ chunkin’ is a kind of pumpkin slingshot.

“It’s not like the event in Delaware. This isn’t a catapult. People get to participate—do it themselves,” she said.

The slingshot are a couple six-by-six posts in the ground with rubber tubing attached. You put a pumpkin in a pocket, pull back, and watch it fly.

“It goes about 500 feet,” she said.

Tickets are $5 each for a chance to fling a pumpkin that is a little smaller than a No 4 soccer ball. She said that they’ll also have apples to fling, which are fun too.

Trent Hill Farm is located at 24 Nutwell Road in Lothian.
