Getting to Know Us
KING BERRY FARM
Steve Scheller has been growing King Berry Farm since 1983. It began with a small patch of red and purple raspberries sold at a roadside picnic table. Having gained much experience as a former employee of Turner's Farm Market, Steve set off to grow his own business. As more customers came, requests for a variety of produce such as corn, tomatoes, and melons were sold from a simplistic rugged shack in years to come.
Steve purchased land from his parents Henry and Dorothy Scheller to develop King Berry Farm. Dorothy established the flower business, and Henry was Mr. Fix-it. There were endless projects on the farm. In 1996, Steve and Patti were married, and over the next 25 years, the Farm Market has expanded to include a gift shop, additional greenhouses and extensive raspberry patch. Steve's mom still works in the greenhouse each spring transplanting and creating our spectacular baskets and potted planters for sale in the Greenhouse.
The Raspberry Connection opened in 2010. Steve and Patti felt we wanted to express our faith in what we do daily and to share with the community our faith as well. We have expanded to feature Christian gifts, jams, wall art, home decor, books, greeting cards, fudge, candles, and patio serving dishes. We added a new entrance to the greenhouse in 2021.
Dan and Becca Kolonick are working side by side, helping to transition us through our path to retirement.
