Polly’s Pumpkin Patch is a small family farm and market owned by Gary Juckem and wife Polly Roland in northeast Wisconsin, just north of Chilton on Highway 57. Polly’s Pumpkin Patch opened in 2003 when we decided to carry on the farming tradition and bought the Juckem family farm. Our family history on the property started in 1889 when Gary’s Great Grandpa John M. Juckem and his wife Johanna bought the farm. Various crops have been grown on the Juckem Farm ever since, by several generations of the family.
Polly grew up in Illinois, her Father worked for Del Monte – thus she ate sweet corn every day in the summer! She grew up gardening flowers, vegetables and her parents passion, daylilies – growing over 1100 varieties.
In 2008 we decided to build our own Market store right next to the fields where our amazing pumpkins and corn are growing.
And Polly’s is the place to be in the Fall! We have become well known over the years for our wide variety of odd and unusual pumpkins and fall decorations we offer. With over 50 varieties of pumpkins of every shape color and size: white, green, blue, tan, striped, bumpy and orange too! From mini to giant – we grow them all! Gourds of every shape and size are very popular. The more weird, the better! We offer Indian corn, broom corn, straw bales, bundles of corn stalks and fall mums too. Come see our beautiful pumpkin stack! And new in 2011 was our 15 Acre Corn Maze . Click here for more information.
In 2015 we added our Strawberry fields where we offer our delicious, sweet pick your own and pre picked berries.
We look forward to meeting all of you – friends, relatives, old and new customers! Stop and visit us soon. Gary and Polly and their Lab Dottie can’t wait to meet you!
