SUGAR GROVE – Those driving on Route 47 might notice a simple sign a little north of Waubonsee Community College.
Reading “Pumpkins,” the sign points east on Merrill Road and leads to the Sugar Grove Pumpkin Farm, which is just east on Merrill, on the north side of the street.
Kaneville resident Ryan White, 26, and Sugar Grove resident John Nickels, 25, operate the stand, with pumpkins, gourds, broom corn and more available. It’s the fourth year White and Nickels have been running the stand.
“I just enjoy the aspect of agriculture, with pumpkins and produce,” White said. “We enjoy doing it. It’s better than going to work.”
White said the stand will be there through Halloween, from sunrise to sunset. He said there have been good crowds as “people are getting in the mood to put some decor out.”
