Pumpkin Production @ Royal Oak Farm Orchard

Back in January, my son, Paul and I were asked to speak at the 2011 Illinois Illinois Specialty Crops, Agritourism, and Organic Conference about pumpkin production at Royal Oak Farm.  Since that time we have received numerous requests for a copy of our presentation as well as information on the modification of our John Deere 7000 Seed Planter, as seen in the photos below.

For a good look at the modifications we made to our John Deere 7000 Planter, we prepared a video to give you an up close look at the necessary changes we made to get the planter to work for pumpkin seeds.  Feel free to download the video from YouTube.  As always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us at any time!
