Midwest Grass & West Prairie FFA Pumpkin Harvest Fundraiser

SHARE NOW

MACOMB, IL – Midwest Grass & Forage and the West Prairie FFA have announced that their pumpkin harvest has completed, and pumpkins from that harvest are currently for sale at their location at 1300 East University Drive in Macomb.

This is the second year of their collaborative pumpkin patch. The pumpkins are locally grown in Midwest Grass & Forage’s plots and are harvested with the help of the FFA students. In 2022, over $1200 was raised to benefit the FFA!

There are currently a variety of sizes, shapes and colors to choose from with pumpkins lining the driveway of Midwest Grass and Forage as well as underneath their fence.

Cash or check payments are currently being accepted. There is a small drop box located on the back of the mailbox post to deposit payment. All proceeds from the sale of these pumpkins will benefit the FFA.
