The story of Meadowbrooke Gourds® began in 1994. It was a rare combination of circumstances that involved one curious farmer, a few dried gourds and a whole lot of ingenuity. The initial moment of inspiration belonged to Ben Bear. That inspiration has now spread to the Meadowbrooke family - those who work and play together as they handcraft each gourd.
Over the years, it has been the enthusiasm of those who delight in their decorative gourds that sustain the inspiration. The Family Meadowbrooke always tries hard to do better, and because of this they know each gourd that leaves the farm will find a warm home in which to live. The farm, where all the gourds are grown, lies at the roots of the Blue Mountain in central Pennsylvania.
