Our own master pumpkin carver

If you have driven down Wagner Road in late October you have likely seen the carved pumpkin display out in front of the Wagner farmhouse. For the last 15 plus years our own Farmer Jeff has been the man behind the amazing creation. He usually starts a couple days before Halloween and uses pumpkins that others don't want. Maybe the pumpkin is odd sized or has a broken stem or even a little rot going on. Jeff takes the rejects, adds in a couple more and really makes something worth seeing. As of today, Jeff has completed the first of two tiers on the wagon so there is still a lot of carving yet to do.
If you happen to come by, see if you can pick out the couple pumpkins Farmer Andres helped out with this year. Look for the cow, pig and cat.
