LINCOLN, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Do you normally get the post-spooky season blues? Well, have you ever tried smashing a pumpkin with a bat and feeding it to a pig?
At the Great Pumpkin Smash event at Codman Community Farms in Lincoln, you can do just that.
WBZ's James Rojas went there to get the scoop.
The Great Pumpkin Smash event is being held on November 6, from 11 A.M. to 3 P.M. for families to come and let out a little steam while reducing waste. In the smash zone, event-goers can pick out their tool of destruction and take their anger out on a pumpkin before tossing it into the pig pen.
"It's a really really fun way to watch your pumpkin see the end of its life and the pigs, some of them are almost jumping for joy trying to get that mouth full of pumpkin," Jess Miles, with Codman Community Farms said.
Mothers Out Front is partnering with Codman Community Farms for the pumpkin smashing event to help reduce waste while feeding some hungry pigs. Each year, about 1 billion pounds of pumpkins are thrown away in landfills where they produce greenhouse gases, according to the Mothers Out Front website. By smashing the pumpkins and feeding them to the pigs they are turned into soil that helps enrich plants.
