“We're homegrown Mansfielders and are family-owned and operated. We strive to give exceptional service and enjoy assisting our customers with quality food at a reasonable price. We get to know our customers, and their support improves the quality of life for all residents of Richland County in many different ways.”

“Our family-raised beef herd continues to grow, we only sell what we raise, and our produce continues to be popular,” Boliantz said.

The home-town feel is an important element to those at Pumpkin Seed. 

“Our folks like buying local, especially when it comes to food, and we’re happy to play a part in that,” said Boliantz, “While great food is our main focus, there’s so much more at Pumpkin Seed.”

The Dent-n-Bent department continues to grow, which expands to more non-food bargains. There are also plans to double the pumpkin patch in time for 2020.
