The Great Pumpkin Patch

Join Mac Condill as he reflects on how his business grew to offer over 400 varieties of pumpkin and entertain over 50,000 guests each fall.

Ginny Condill, Dave Kaiser of Baker Creek Seeds and Mac Condill pose by the squash tower at The National Heirloom Expo. In the mid 1980s, when it became more difficult to make a living with traditional farming, Condill's family turned their focus to growing pumpkins. He has channeled that love of pumpkins into a profitable business that includes The Great Pumpkin Patch which hosts more than 50,000 visitors each fall, a popular bakery, and a growing seed business.
