How We Started
West River Greenhouses is a family owned & operated greenhouse business specializing in growing healthy, top quality plants since 1973.
Starting with field vegetables, Charlie Sr. and Bob (aka. Farmer Bob) saw the potential for adding ornamental plants to their ‘growing’ business. With the addition of more greenhouses they started selling flowering plants alongside their vegetables and noticed a growing appetite for ornamental plants as well as food plants.
Now, after over 45 years in the greenhouse business, Mr. & Mrs. Farmer Bob have continued to emphasize the production of top quality plants with low impact on the environment and with a local workforce. Interestingly, the current trend is swinging towards growing for food over ornamentals and Farmer Bob & staff are ready to help new customers learn how to achieve their gardening goals.
