Patti Starr

Starr Farms grows about 500 acres of pumpkins each year. Pattie Starr is pictured with some of the crop. The farm is opening a 150-year-old house there where people can stay for a short vacation and learn about the farm’s operations.

A local farm operation is finding success with a crop they started raising just a few years ago. Adding to the farm’s diversification, the owners are getting ready to open a home where visitors can stay for awhile and learn about farming.

Brad and Patti Starr own and operate Starr Farms. They formed a partnership eight years ago with Jack and Jennifer Biehl to operate the farm.
