When Bob and Caroline Nibbe started their strawberries and then their pumpkin patch, they thought it would be a way to augment the college funds for their four boys.
They named their St. Mathias Road business BoysnBerries.
"They'll have very little debt coming out of college because of the pumpkin patch," Bob Nibbe said.
Their youngest is a high school senior with the oldest now 39. The strawberries proved to be fickle. They had hail damage one year and frost another. Frost was a worry even into June for the berries.
