Last October I discovered the awesomeness that is Sturtevant Haunted Farm in Walnut, Illinois, and since then so many people I know have been raving about how cool it is to see.

Sturtevant Haunted Farm is just over an hour's drive from Rockford, and you may have heard people refer it to before as the "Zombie Farm". No matter what you call it, it's something you should take the family to see this month if you want to have a spooky good time.

The coolest thing about Sturtevant Haunted Farm is, each year you are guaranteed to see new things. I'm not gonna lie, one of 2021's new attractions at Sturtevant's gave me a serious case of the goosies, (and they weren't the good kind), because getting in one of these is basically my worst nightmare. (Yes, I am a huge wimp).
