According to one of the largest growers in Central Illinois, in the heart of the largest pumpkin producing state in the nation, business is booming.


John Ackerman, Owner of Ackerman family farms, says despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the pumpkin farm has seen pent up demand.



Currently, Ackerman family farms grow over 150 different varieties of pumpkins, and Ackerman said this year's crop benefited from the summer's semi-drought conditions.


Ackerman family farms are located just off of U.S. Route 150 in Morton.
