The Gourd Guy can be found every Saturday at the Dane County Farmer’s Market in Madison.
With over twenty years experience as a gourd farmer, Larry Haas – The Gourd Guy – harvests upwards of 7,000 gourds every year, planting about fifteen different varieties. Among the types grown include specialty gourds such as the extra long handled dipper, the African wine kettle, the bushel 100+ and the Tennessee spinner. On occasion, Larry will tie a knot in a long handled dipper – his goal is to eventually tie three knots in one gourd.
Gourds are also sold at the farm, where visitors can find a larger selection.
The Gourd Guy farm is located in Blue Mounds, just south of Highway 18/151 and is open every day, but visitors should contact us before planning the trip as the farm hours may vary.
