Speaker:  Mac Condill, owner and operator of “The Great Pumpkin Patch” located in Arthur, Illinois.

Mac’s extensive training in Horticulture and love for their family farm has helped shape the evolution of  ”The Great Pumpkin Patch” over the last 25 years.  In 1977, Bruce and Mary Beth (McDonald ) Condill added a few pumpkin seeds to their children’s garden, and a cucurbit business grew to 63 acres of pumpkins, squash and gourds.  Involvement in commercial pumpkin production followed as well as the preservation and development of heirloom and rare cucurbit seeds.
