Wolfe’s Family Produce Offers Halloween Hayrides, Tons Of Pumpkins

By MaWofepumpkinrie Gilmore

The corner of Bloomingdale and U.S. Hwy. 301 will once again be transformed into a perfect family fall gathering place as Wolfe’s Family Produce accepts delivery of thousands of pumpkins and adds to its 13-acre Hayride and Pumpkin Patch.

Owners and twin brothers Jeff and Jonathan Wolfe were always known as the Wolfe brothers during their tenure at Riverview High School where the pair graduated in 2003, and were involved with the agriculture and 4-H programs. Now the brothers are known for being a great family-run business. Year round, the pair manage and run the stand offering fresh produce, hot boiled peanuts, firewood, Javi’s Salsa and honey and other products from local vendors and a great stop for families of all ages.

For the last several years, the brothers started adding the hayrides to the pumpkin patch and are proud of the business they have created on the corner of U.S. Hwy. 301.

“We have 13 acres of trails and thousands of pumpkins to choose from and it is great to see all the families come through,” said Jeff who took delivery of three semis full of pumpkins last year. “We offer fresh produce and local products for families.”

During the hayride dates, Friday through Sunday, October 16-18 and 23-25 from 6:30-9:30 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday, October 28 and 29 from 6-8:30 p.m., and Friday, October 30 from 6:30-9:30 p.m., hay rides are $7 and the pumpkin patch itself is open everyday.

“In years past, we’ve had a 400 pound prize pumpkin from Ohio,” said Jeff. “We have a huge selection with all shapes and sizes available from mini to monster sized pumpkins.”

The Wolfe’s have owned the stand since May 2008. On March 31, 2011, the stand was hit by a tornado which resulted in a video that has become famous under “Riverview Tornado” on YouTube. Brothers Jeff and Jonathan are both now married with young daughters just six months apart in age, and are proud to be building their family-owned business alongside their families.

Wolfe’s Produce is open from 8:30 a.m.-7 p.m. beginning Thursday, October 1 and is located at 6005 U.S. Hwy. 301 S. in Riverview (corner of 301 and Bloomingdale Ave.). Call 927-2203 with questions.
