John Ackerman
John Ackerman grew up on a typical Illinois livestock and row-crop farm, then diversified into pumpkins for Libby foods.  That led to ornamentals, gourds, fall flowers, apples and decorative items, and to agri-tourism with a petting zoo and corn maze.  His wife opened a second shop in Morton.  Survival by niche market.​
