The Gourd Barn


The Gourd Barn is owned & operated by David & Donna Meeks and their family. The family lives on a small farm about 15 miles south of Paducah, Kentucky at 2105 Owens Chapel Road, Melber, KY  42069.

We have been growing gourds for 25 years on some of the acreage of the farm and we grow some on our 30’ x 80’ arbor.   We store our dried gourds in an old stock barn that was already on the property when we purchased it.  We welcome customers to come to the barn to make their own selections of raw gourds, cleaned gourds, or dyed gourds.

All seeds are open pollinated.  Germination on most varieties is 80-85%.  Extra seeds will be included for seeds of lower germination.  All seed packets will be $3.00 per packet plus $3.00 shipping & handling up to 12 packets.  Seeds will be shipped within 3-5 days of order.  We ship only within the continental United States. 



The Gourd Barn in Melber, KY is open seasonally and by appointment. Contact us to schedule an appointment before arrival to ensure we are open.
