is conveniently located one mile west of Sycamore on Route 64 with easy access for Sycamore families to pick up some pumpkins for the Pumpkin Fest, for jack-o-lanterns, and other fall decorations. At the farm there are over 50 varieties of pumpkins, gourds and squash plus Indian corn, corn shocks, broom corn, bittersweet, and straw bales for sale. The Johnson family have been raising pumpkins for more than a quarter century on the family’s centennial farm. The tradition of raising and selling pumpkins goes back to when Mr. Johnson was a child. When Dean and Charlene began there young family they continued the tradition of raising pumpkins and placing them in the front yard for people to purchase. The pumpkin stand outgrew its space in the front yard and eventually became part of the farmyard with pumpkins nicely grouped by size, color and variety. Now, the family offers thousands of pumpkins including whites, heirlooms, greens, red, orange, pie pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns.
The Johnson family has great pleasure in watching families, children and adults purchasing pumpkins that were grown here on our farm, it is a joyful time and a great experience for those who choose to venture out to Sycamore, Illinois. Hope to see you soon!
