In 1968, Alan and Catherine Kraemer canned 3,000 liners on a half acre and started their first nursery. “Growing ornamental and woody shrubs looked like a good opportunity, since the industry was very small at the time,” Alan said.
Fast forward to 2013. The nursery has grown to six farms totaling more than 850 acres with 67 acres under cover and 42 dock spaces. Paul Kraemer, other family members and long term employees have joined Alan to truly make this a family business. How may we help your business grow today?
