Larry and Ruth Richter did not plan to go into the pumpkin business but they went along with their daughter's idea of starting a patch. That was 29 years and a lot of pumpkins ago. Richter's Pumpkins grew from the family pumpkin patch and it became a way of earning some extra cash for their children's college education. These days the pumpkin patch is a popular fall stop for kids and adults from all over the area. More than 200 Wadena-Deer Creek students made the trip to the patch last year.
