By Jerry Smith Farm

Founded in 1975 and still owned and operated by the Smith family, the Jerry Smith Pumpkin Farm is truly a one-of-a-kind, homegrown family operation! Our farm welcomes visitors from Wisconsin and all around the country every year. Generations of families have grown up alongside ours-we are proud that they feel our farm is their farm, too.

Located between Chicago and Milwaukee, Jerry Smith Farm is not one to miss.

Mark your calendars for August 14th & 15th, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.

Admission to the event is FREE. A $10 wristband is required to have unlimited access to the giant inflatable slide, obstacle course, and jump pad.

Sweet Corn is one of the most popular vegetables in the United States, and therefore Sweet Corn Festivals have become a midwest tradition. Jerry Smith Farm is not new to the idea of these fun festivals as they have been celebrating this delicious corn harvest for many years. However, this year things will be a bit different for the farm as they welcome local food trucks, musicians, craft vendors, and a cornhole tournament to their already fun-filled event. “We wanted to give people a fun place to spend their summer day, all while being with family and creating memories,” says Jensyn, the event planner at Jerry Smith Farm. 

Food Trucks
