Tim Harris recently received the award for 2017 Southern Hemisphere Champion from The Great Pumpkin Commonwealth.

This is a great achievement for someone who is pushing his pumpkins weights every year, and pushing the NZ record closer to the world record each season.

The Great Pumpkin Carnival is the only GPC weigh off site in New Zealand, and we are proud of being part of the wider giant pumpkin growing community in the world.
