History:

In 1958 Bob Schuett bought the main farm. At age 24 Rob Schuett bought a farm in 1978 and quickly began farming and making a living on the surrounding land. Rob started the farm with 5 cows and 200 pigs while farming 40 acres. A few years later we farmed over 1,200 acres of corn, soybeans, and hay.  We also increase the cattle herd to about 100.

Throughout the years land became hard to come by and the total farm acreage and number of cows decreased through the 80s.

With available farm land decreasing and population growth we decided to start selling pumpkins at a small scale in 1991. When we first started selling pumpkins we had a few rows of pumpkins in the front lawn. Today we have expanded the pumpkins to offer pick-your-own, pick from the lawn, hay rides, corn maze and many other fun activities.

In the late 90s we became known for our famous painted bales. We had an idea to start painting pictures of pumpkin faces on the round bales. The set of three bales has become our trademark. Everyone in the area knows the bales! Another great addition to the farm was our three legged dog "Shady" who has passed away but know we have two border collies "Buddy" and "Alley" who help us work the cattle.

We started offering the Corn Maze in 2004. This was a big hit! Our biggest challenge was trying to cut the 1.5 acre maze by hand and hull it out through the maze path. After the first year we found a much easier way to cut the maze. In 2010 the maze has grown to be over 7 acres. This is one of the biggest corn mazes in the area.

In 2005 we added pick-your-own pumpkins and in 2006 we added hayrides and catering to groups.

In 2009 we currently farm 1500 acres of corn, soybeans, and hay ground. In addition, we plant and harvest about 20 acres of pumpkins. Rob Schuett's full time job is running the farm. When I say full time it really is full time... from sun up to sun down.
