Hollow Pumpkin Farm Has been owned and operated by Steve Smith since 1977 and has always been dedicated to organically growing fruits, vegetables and herbs in a sustainable manner and providing it to the community of Southern Illinois. In 2012 we will be celebrating our 35th anniversary. We sell to the Carbondale Illinois Neighborhood co-op, small local shops and eateries, Southern Illinois University and at the Carbondale farmers market. Hollow Pumpkin Farm is always opened to orders from other establishments within a reasonable distance. We strive to leave as little an ecological footprint as possible.
Hollow Pumpkin Farm runs a C.S.A. (Community Supported Agriculture) that has been growing since it's inception. Steve welcomes interns, wwoofers and volunteers to come out to the farm and learn about organic methods of growing and what it takes to run a C.S.A.
We are happy to show people around the farm. Groups and/or individuals who would like to take a tour of the farm may contact us to set up an appointment.
