Our Story...

    Living and growing up on a farm in Racine county as a young boy, Paul learned about farming from his grandfather and father.  Paul's grandfather started the family farm by growing a variety of vegetables for the local market.  The farm grew, and Paul's dad continued the farm by growing potatoes and vegetables.  Paul and his brothers helped work the farm, and when he got a little older, Paul started his own greenhouse, growing varieties of flowers and vegetables.  Getting his hands in the dirt became a way of life, and Paul opened his first pumpkin farm to put himself through college.

    After many years as a grower and manager for successful greenhouses, the dream of running his own pumpkin farm lived on in his heart.  Paul and Sharon relocated from Racine to Perry Township, and after a couple of years living in the area, decided to give the pumpkin farm a try.  Starting the farm in 2007, the farm has been thriving ever since.


Our Growing Practices...

    Many of our customers have expressed concern in knowing where their food is coming from and how it's produced.  Paul and Sharon have built a produce business dedicated to growing high quality produce in an ethical manner.  What does this mean for our customers?
    
    We are a "hands-on" farm.  All the crops are planted by hand using either seeds or starter plants.  Weeding is done by hand with a hoe, or roto-tiller, to keep the rows weed free instead of employing herbicides.  All produce is handpicked to ensure high quality; no machinery equipment is used for harvest.

    While we are not certified organic growers, our growing practices are very similar, or better, than organic.  Many larger farms will schedule their crops for herbicide or fertilizer applications on a rotational cycle.  We monitor the crops for insect or disease infestation by going into the field and applying corrective measures, only as needed, to the affected areas using organic based products to control it, not by spraying the entire crop.  No herbicide is used on any edible produce.

    While crop rotation practices help us keep chemical usage to a minimum, we like to grow the old-fashioned way from start to finish.  Seeding, weeding and harvesting by hand ensures the best quality we can offer.  Providing quality, healthy produce locally grown is our goal.  We truly appreciate your support in these efforts
