Moving pumpkins

If you have ever wondered how all those pumpkins get to Wagner I can tell you it takes a lot of work. Because we only have 18 acres we do not have enough room to grow all the pumpkins that we would need. We buy most of our crop from local Wisconsin and Illinois farms and then truck them to Wagner. In the course of an average season we sell about 46 tons of pumpkins. At about 5-10 pounds a piece that ends up being a lot of gourds. We really appreciate all the support folks give us by coming to the farm to get their mums and pumpkins. The money that we raise through the Fall and Winter sales goes to off set the cost of feed for the livestock here at the farm. So thank you for your help.
Great job Jeff and Andres!
