We grow AND sell!
We are very proud of our staff. They start work in February, literally digging their way into the greenhouses some days! They spend weeks mixing soil, filling pots, planting, watering, tagging, fertilizing, trimming and nurturing our crops, then all of a sudden at the end of April, it’s time to switch to retail mode and start selling! This is something that definitely sets us apart from many other plant retailers – the fact that the same people grow our plants as sell them. Running our business this way means that our staff have a very good understanding of the needs of our plants. I personally think this attention to detail and caring mentality really shines through in the superior quality of our plants!
We are always pleased when our employees return for multiple years. Right now, we have a wonderful working group. Kieron Rupke is back for her 7th year, Kelly French and Cathy Cook for their 3rd year. We were very happy to welcome Val White into our farm family this year and she is learning fast. Val is looking forward to getting to know all our regular customers and helping out with the selling of our crops. Our son Dan is working weekends in the greenhouses and at Creemore Farmers Market. Of course, you are bound to see Chris and our younger son Ben helping out too. All our staff and family are looking forward to welcoming you back to the farm this spring and are totally committed to making your trip here productive, helpful and fun!
