Who We Are

We are Steve and Connie Carpenter.

We started Jack-O-Lantern Farms in 1996, with a pumpkin farm in Barton, AL. Two years later, we decided to expand our farm by raising other vegetables.

In 2003, in a small greenhouse at our home, we began to experiment with hydroponic farming, growing tomatoes and cucumbers.

A year later, we were able to lease our present location on Garage Road in Sheffield, AL.

Today, Jack-O-Lantern Farms has expanded to over 3,000 plant spaces in the greenhouses and added more field grown crops. To ensure a safer crop, no pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic nutrients are used in the field or greenhouse.

Jack-O-Lantern farm produces vegetables grown naturally, local raw honey, and fresh baked goods. Other products available include locally produced items (such as Mook Mills Cheese Straws and Belle Chevre) domestic and imported cheeses, free range eggs, and other items that are hard to find in the Shoals area.

Jack-O-Lantern Farm also provides quality ingredients for The 360 Grille, Claunch Cafe, City Hardware, The Factory Store + Cafe, and Odette.
