It's 22 years in 2021! Can you believe it?
Thank you to our customers! We couldn't do it without you!
The Solsma family lives on a farm near Sanborn in northwest Iowa. Jay raises corn, soybeans and Hereford cattle. In 2015 he started selling Beck's Hybrids Seed. Amy is a Jill of all trades working all kinds of jobs over the years. Her favorites are playing in the dirt, trying to kill weeds, and shooting off fireworks. Blake works on the farm with Jay and hauls grain in the off season. Claire graduated from Iowa State University studying Ag Communications and Political Science and is attending Drake Law School.
Why a punkin patch? And why is it spelled that way? Amy's dear grandpa always called her that and she also grew up on a farm by Newkirk, Iowa, and raised a few punkins. She and her sisters would set them out by the road and neighbors would pay a dime or quarter for each punkin. She set the money aside for college (it was a whole $12!) Fast forward many years to 1999 and Amy had her own children and thought it would be a good way to start a college fund for them. 22 years and lots of additions have made the patch what it is today.
Now we have acres of fall produce, corn maze, and a retail store featuring locally made items.
In 2017, we added fireworks! A friend suggested we should sell fireworks and we agreed. We have quickly become pyromaniacs and love to talk and shoot fireworks! We supply fireworks for family gatherings and city celebrations. Join us on June 18,2021 for our free demo.
