Lusk pumpkin expansion brings new staff

A large pumpkin acreage increase over the past several years has led Lusk Onion Co. to expand its sales and marketing staff.Angela-Lusk

Angela Lusk, the daughter-in-law of owner-partner Terry Lusk, is now working on the firm’s sales desk.

In the last 10 years, Lusk’s pumpkin acreage has expanded from 240 acres to 1,335 acres. This fall it has added pie pumpkins as well as a few other edible varieties. They are expected to be harvested a few days after Halloween.

Lusk Onion is based in Dalhart, TX, near the tri-corners of Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma. Lusk grows pumpkins in all three states.

Lusk’s firm was launched as an onion grower in Clovis, NM, in 1982, but a decade ago, onion production gave way to pumpkins. The company moved to Dalhart but the company name, Lusk Onion Co. held fast.
