PADUCAH — Author and Frey Farms owner Sarah Frey will be the featured speaker at the Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual Meeting and Business Celebration on Jan. 28, the chamber recently announced.

Frey founded a multimillion-dollar business, Frey Farms, which is a Certified Woman Owned Business headquartered just outside Mount Vernon, Illinois. Her best-selling book “The Growing Season: How I Built a Life and Saved an American Farm,” was published by Penguin Random House in 2020. The chamber says Fray is also the co-executive producer of a TV adaptation of her book, which is currently in development with ABC. In 2016, the New York Times described Frey as “the undisputed pumpkin queen of America,” reporting that her business grows more carving pumpkins than anyone else in the country. Frey Farms also plants thousands of acres of fruits and vegetables across seven states.
