“I have always loved decorating for all seasons, especially fall. I love an orange pumpkin! Couple that with my entrepreneurial spirit and Calie’s Acre was born!”
In 2009 our home was on one acre of land. I had one acre and a lot of tenacity! Mother and I sat down, came up with a name, and decided what we were going to do. Though I was a single mom to Ryan, who was 11, I took a leap of faith and quit my job of 13 years to start a pumpkin patch. I brought in some pumpkins and mums, made a flier and some phone calls, and invited a few schools and daycares to visit. Folks came out and I was happy and grateful.
In 2012 we moved to our current location and our one-acre patch became 20! To say we’ve grown is an understatement. Calie’s Acre would not be what it is today without a lot of hard work, everyone who has worked with us, supported us in various ways and, of course, our family of customers.
When I see a pumpkin it makes me smile, but when I see families together at Calie’s Acre it truly warms my heart.
As a single mom, I didn’t get to spend time on field trips and outings with my son like I wished I could, so it brings me great joy to see families making memories. THANK YOU for allowing me to be a part of your special moments and memories! Your family and your support of my small business means the world to me! Come see us soon!
