Pumpkin Farm

Twenty years ago, Frey Farms started adding pumpkins to the local produce they sold at nearby Walmart stores in Wayne County, Illinois. Since then, Sarah Frey and her four brothers have expanded their harvest acres to 11 farms in seven additional states, allowing them to employ more than 500 American workers seasonally.

We’re proud to celebrate two decades of working with the largest grower and shipper of pumpkins in the nation. In just 10 years, Frey Farms sold enough Jack-o-Lantern pumpkins to wrap around the globe seven times!
Not only has their success helped grow the local and state economies where their farms operate, it has allowed us to offer healthier and affordable locally sourced food options at even more locations across the country.

See how this family owned and operated business is supporting American jobs, and why we’re proud to work with them as part of our commitment to source an additional $250 billion in products made, assembled or grown in the U.S.
