RAVENNA, Ohio — Everyone knows pumpkins are a big part of Halloween, but what should you do with them once the spooky stuff is over?

At least one place in Northeast Ohio wants to reuse them! Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary in Ravenna is reminding residents it will gladly accept their pumpkin donations once the season is over. They say the orange squashes "not only provide a tasty treat [for the animals], they are a source of enrichment."

"Many times we offer the pumpkin whole and let the piggies roll it around the yard and get a workout breaking it open," Happy Trails wrote on Facebook. "Cracking the pumpkin open and hiding the pieces around the yard is another great enrichment opportunity."

Anyone wishing to donate their pumpkins can deliver them to the farm on 5623 New Milford Road.
