Sarah Tomac started selling pumpkins on the side of the road as a child…and her farm now grows 250 different varieties of pumpkins, squash, and gourds. She and her family also raise sweet corn, Indian corn, and soybeans. She loves the history of International Harvester, she’s an author and co-author of many books, and she’s raising three children. What she keeps coming back to is that although farming is a lot of work, she’s having a lot of fun doing it.

She talks about:

  • Hand pollinating pumpkins – the why and how
  • Using rare seeds they get from a world traveler, including a variety called a cracked egg
  • Her favorite description from a 5-year-old farm visitor about her fall decorations
  • Her time living in Australia, and why she prefers Michigan
  • How sibling rivalry gave her a great start in the business world
