Let us serve you. Need something special? Ask us

We continually search for new varieties and constantly experiment to be sure we are growing "the best of the best.'" We are always fine-tuning our operation to assure the plants meet their potential. And we even grow special crops for several universities, foundations, and professional landscapers such as:


  • Cornell University
  • Binghamton University
  • Clark Foundation

  • Town of Chenango
  • Village of Whitney Point
  • Village of Greene
  • Whitney Point Rotary Club

We are just as proud of our customers

We are also very proud to use and support environmentally friendly products like green pots. Such as rice pots, which break down after two years. Wheat pots that break down after one year and compostable pots.

Plastic pots are made with prime, recycled resins and are recyclable.

We practice IPM (Integrated Pest Management)

Our goal is healthy plants and a healthy environment.




Our heat source is an environmentally friendly boiler which runs on sustainable, renewable wood pellets.
