Darryl Pack started Farming in Davis County about 1950. At that time he raised vegetables and other products for the local market. Darryl and his wife Joyce raised their family while farming the land. Around 1966 Darryl started to raise turfgrass sod for local landscapers and homeowners.
Today the family farm is largely shut down due to urban sprawl. A limited amount of quality hay, sod, and pumpkins are still provided directly from the farm.
During the years the Pack family has supplied pumpkins to Albertson's,(now all local freshMarket stores) Smith's, Dan's Foods and other grocery stores. While doing so, the number of people requesting to pick a pumpkin from the field increased to the point that the Pack family decided to set up a pumpkin patch for the public. Now 40 years later, many people make the trip to Pack Farms pumpkin patch a family tradition.
