About Us

Our Story

Hola!  My name is Carmen Marshall.  I came to Minnesota from Peru to teach Spanish and my culture.  In 1997 I was teaching at an elementary school in Chaska as part of a cultural exchange program when the child of my host family wanted to pick a pumpkin.  The pumpkin patch we visited was Peter’s family's, and I found the best pumpkin of the Marshall's field! Peter and I got married in 1999.

Hello, I am Peter Marshall, I come from a long line of farmers in the area; my late father, George Marshall was an early vendor at the Minneapolis Farmers Market.  My grandparents used to sell directly to small stores that sold groceries in their local communities. 

After Carmen and I married, we started a small operation in Shakopee that focused on sweet corn, watermelons, and pumpkins.

Peter's Pumpkins and Carmen's Corn no longer just sells corn, pumpkins and watermelon. By 2001, our farm had expanded and we sell our produce and canning goods at different farmer's markets and at our roadside stand in Shakopee.
