About Valas Pumpkin Patch
“My parents own a pumpkin farm in Nebraska.” This line usually earns me at least a confused pause when out-of-state people ask where I am from. I take a secret delight in watching their faces as the implications of my parents’ occupation sink into their minds, so I pause a few seconds more before continuing. But, unfortunately, like any cliff-note version of a story, my one minute introduction is doomed to inadequacy. Vala’s Pumpkin Patch offers an experience that defies explanation, and only the limited but fortunate population of eastern Nebraska has been able to experience it first-hand. They, in turn, smile knowingly at the simple mention of my last name. Everyone has a favorite story, everyone has a special memory, everyone wants to tell me, and I love to hear. Now, it is my turn to tell a story. It is the story of a growing family business with five words in its mission statement: Create lasting memories and traditions .
