For more than 100 years, and four generations, Siegel’s Cottonwood Farm in Lockport, IL has been the place where memories are created. Not just by the Siegel family, but also by families and individuals across the region.

Today, it is still a working farm run by Paul and Sue Siegel, third generation, and has become one of the most desired wedding and private event locations in Illinois. We continue to grow crops and farm the land we love, while also cultivating new and exciting opportunities to enhance our unique venue. With our roots and our hearts dug deep into this land, we felt it was important to stay true to a quality and craft that would complement the history and natural beauty of our farm.

Each year, The Farm hosts Pumpkin Fest (, a six-week festival of “Affordable Family Fun on the Farm”® for families and individuals across the region to harvest memories. General Admission tickets include more than 30 attractions, from farm animals to pet and feed, Siegel’s 5 Sports Ball Zone, Hayrack Ride to the U-pick Pumpkin Field, Haunted Barn, Train Rides, Zip Lines, two corn field mazes, Giant Pumpkin Weigh Off, 5 play areas, a variety of appreciation weekends and more. Pony rides, Climbing Wall, and Gem Mining are also available. New attractions are added every year. Enjoy a diverse selection of food from our nine food stands and don’t forget to take home some of Grandpa’s secret recipe Kettle Corn or Grandma’s Apple Pie.

Pumpkin Fest is open daily 10:00 a.m.  from the last weekend of September, including Columbus Day, through Halloween.

We are proud and pleased to offer The BARN at COTTONWOOD, as the newest in a long list of amenities that Siegel’s Cottonwood Farm has to offer. It’s been over 30 years since a true Amish Barn was built in Will County. Our barn was built by hand, without power tools or modern conveniences by Pennsylvania Amish artisans. It’s been our vision to build a place as special as the events that will be held here, and we can’t wait to be a part of what you’re planning.
