(Byron, MN)Tweite's Family Farm will be harvesting memories in the Greater Midwest again this fall to celebrate their 25th year of business.
Over the years, a trip to Tweite's Family Farm has become a tradition for many families. As the Tweite's head into their 25th year of operation, they are proud to welcome a second generation of parents who remember visiting Tweite's Pumpkin Patch when they were children. Every person who visits Tweite's Family Farm has a favorite story and special memories.
" It's hard to believe all these cherished memories and fall fun grew from a small family business," Tom Tweite of Tweite's Family Farm in Byron.
Tom Tweite is the 5th generation to live on the farm. 2010 was noted with a centennial plaque from the State of Minnesota marking the 100 years of continuous family ownership. Tweite's actually started selling farm grown produce in 1984, but it wasn't until 1988 that the first building was remolded and they had their 1st fall festival. Tom planted and harvested the produce, then delivered it to Colleen his wife who took care of the retail store. Colleen said "I was thrilled to have the opportunity to help provide for my family's needs while still being a stay at home mom."
Every member of the Tweite family contributed to the growth of the young business. Tom and Colleen had 4 daughters Nichole, Danielle, Molly and Maggie.
" Many of our early customers came to know the Tweite girls well, as they were often in the store with mother, Colleen," said Tom.
The Tweite girls always did what they were asked and as time went on and the girls grew into their own special talents. Through those talents and all their extra efforts, helping while growing up in a family business they all contributed help make what Tweite's Family Farm is today.
Every year we look forward to the fall when guests visit Tweite's Family Farm to experience a spectacular Fall Festival. People love the caramel apples, fresh fudge and the great activities. But it's the memories and traditions that keep them coming back. We take great pride in our role as a wholesome family entertainment destination. We hope to continue growing and improving year after year. It is our hope to give each family some M and M's (Magical Moments)
