1922 - 2002

Potatoes, tomatoes, pumpkins and greens,
sumptuous sweet-corn, all sorts of beans,
cantaloupe, honeydew, name any melon,
planted then ripened, soon ready for sellin'.

What sort of hard-workin' son-of-gun
could get things to market, get the job done?
Joe Rumpza! Joe Rumpza! A name known to all.
The Farmers Market Farmer...Spring, Summer and Fall.

So, here's to Joe Rumpza, a Tippecanoe Treasure!
Golden harvest with a fresh breath of Spring!
The joys that he brought were his and our pleasure!
Toast Joe Rumpza - The Vegetable King !!!
