Pick a Peck of Illinois Pumpkins
Take a look at other pumpkin farms, similar to Heap’s Giant Pumpkin Farm, across Illinois:
Kroll’s Fall Harvest Farm in Waukegan began in 1993 as a family garden Ruthann Kroll planted with her children. Over the years, the garden evolved into an agritourism attraction with hay rides, an educational corn maze and a petting zoo with staff that teaches about farm animals. Visitors can purchase feed to give to the animals, which include alpacas, turkeys, goats, sheep, chickens, donkeys, a llama and miniature horse. They also sell pumpkins and fall décor, as well as freshly made doughnuts and other snacks to enjoy in the picnic area.
