Our gourds are grown on our family farm in NW Missouri that was homesteaded in the 1840's. Our children are the 6th generation to be raised on our farm and work the land. We raise pumpkins for the annual Pony Express Pumpkinfest in St. Joseph. Our farm borders the train tracks that carried the mail from the east coast to St. Joseph in order to head further west with the Pony Express riders. Our kids also grew up riding and showing horses. They have either gotten married and or off at college so we are cleaning out the tack room and horse trailer!
