We’re horticulturalists and nurserymen. But we think of ourselves as careful farmers.

Sustainability and earth-friendly practices are not new to us or a recent initiative. Since 1897, we have been caring stewards of our growing fields, which now number over 2000 acres, as well as good neighbors to the many family farms that make southern Wisconsin famous for its premium dairy products. Not only is this ethically correct. It is good business. Why?

It has been our experience over the past century - and science consistently confirms—that doing things the most eco-friendly way is ultimately the most efficient way, and therefore the most cost-effective way. This is good for you in terms of the relative value we are able to provide. And it is good for the livelihood and job security of our 150+ employee owners. Learn about some of our initiatives:
