- FARM BUSINESS
- Labor intensive when handling the pumpkins; had teenage hired help. Says everything isn't as simple as it used to be. Lots of paperwork, W-2 forms, can't just hand them cash and see them the next day. Ran into zoning issues-went from agriculture to commercial agriculture- and had to make an appropriate driveway for the shop. Opened up the farm in 1999. Raises about 3,000 mums a year.
