FROM SEEDS TO SUPERSTARS
See how we harvest impeccably plump pumpkins year after year.
IT STARTS WITH A SEED
We plant our very own special seeds every May in Morton, Illinois where the weather and soil are ideal for pumpkin growing.
A SIGN FROM THE VINES
The seeds typically sprout in about 7-10 days. If vines start to form at this time it's a good sign the plant will produce an abundance of pumpkins.
BEGINNING TO BUD
It takes 7-10 weeks for vines to fully grow and pumpkin flowers to bloom. At this time, our team starts testing soil and walking through the patches to make sure each pumpkin is healthy and safe from pests.
GROWN UP AND GOURD-GEOUS
Now that's a pumpkin! After about 120 days, we harvest all the ripe pumpkins with just the right taste and texture to send to our factory just a short drive away.
YES, WE CAN!
It's almost pie time! Next we wash, chop, steam and press each pumpkin into puree for canning. We don't add any chemicals or preservatives so each can is filled with nothing but 100% pure pumpkin goodness.
READY FOR ANYTHING
That’s it! Our canned pumpkin is on its way to grocery shelves in August just in time for Thanksgiving, Christmas and all your fall baking fun. What will you make this year?
