Pumpkin seeds-oddities

Anyone grown pumpkins. We're thinking about it for our nursery and another avenue of income. I want the odd looking punmpkins, gorges, etc. anyone plant theses before? Any good seed companies you would recommend? I realize I should be in a different forum but the nursery forum is ssslllllloooooowwwww. No one ever there. So thought I would ask the lawn crew men.

A local botanic garden uses big pumpkins for decoration and display in the fall. I think they are grown under contract by a local grower. I am pretty sure they pay top dollar for a few big ones. They are about 4 feet in diameter--amazing. They also buy a lot of medium size for decoration 12 to 18".
If you can find a farmer's market to sell them or a local store--should work. Its a lot of work to load and unload them.
