About Meadowbrooke

Our Story

In 1994, we started going to our first shows to showcase our new fully crafted gourds. We soon realized that our gourds were many times more valuable dried than fresh. Starting in 1995, we started on a farm in Mechanicsburg with 5 people working out of tractor trailers and a shed. Realizing we were in need of more room and a more climate controlled environment, we moved to our current farm in 1996.
