Our Story

We started as a small dirt farm nursery with a couple of family members and a hand full of loyal farm hands. Our goal was to produce beautiful plant material for landscapers and garden centers. It was important to us that we hand pick and tag each order based on the customers specific needs and preferences, to the best of our ability. We believe this is what set us apart. During our early years we  produced only ball & burlap material. 

Over time, we have grown into a prosperous wholesale nursery that now offers both ball & burlap and container material in a variety of sizes. We have also grown into two crews of loyal farm hands, both of which still hold many of our original employees. We are thankful to have such wonderful customers and great employees who work hard to help us continue to meet our original goal of producing beautiful plant material.  And yes, we still still hand pick and tag each order based on the customers specific needs and preferences, to the best of our ability!
