Gourd Art - R&R Kuntry Pumpkin Center

What appears to be a humble produce market at the side of Route 30 in Pikeville is in fact one of the largest shops of gourd art I've ever seen. Bird houses, feeders, soup ladles, all painted in bright colors, some with faces and designs. The mother and daughter were busy at work in the shop, but happy to tell us about their methods and creations. Free popcorn is available for all visitors, and dried gourd birdhouses for those who want to try painting them at home. A great back road surprise.
