<p>Lemont residents looking to get in the Halloween spirit need only to find their way to 131st Street and Bell Road.</p>
<p>Puckerville Farms, which has been growing and selling pumpkins for 20 years, offers a number of fall products, as well as hayrides and bonfires.</p> <p>Unlike many pumpkin farms in the area, which have slowly morphed into amusement parks, Puckerville has remained true to its roots as a family farm. Owner Rick Homerding grows a wide variety of gourds and unique varieties of pumpkins on the five acres of property he leases behind his home.</p> <p>The property has been in Homerding’s family since 1875, when his ancestors grew corn and wheat on the 100 acres they owned. A small part of that original property has remained in the family ever since, but was not used to grow pumpkins until Homerding’s father came up with the idea in 1991.</p>
