Green Acre Farm & Nursery is in its 36th year in North Greece. The Garden Center/Farm Market was founded in 1978 by Jack and Millie Edmond. In the early days, we carried a complete line of gardening plants, nursery stock, and hardgoods, as well as, Hainsworth eggs, Perry’s Ice cream, milk and bread.
Thanks to community support we have flourished over the years. Although the dairy sales have ceased, we now carry a complete line of nursery stock, an enormous selection of perennials, an unending supply of bagged goods, and Turf Line’s best fertilizers. Our 11,000+ sq. ft. glass greenhouse is home to the best bedding plants, hanging baskets and perennials in the area. Our greenhouse also boasts our own branded pot, the ‘Jack Pot’ featuring only the best, most proven annual and perennial varieties. In the summer months we continue the tradition of selling only the finest homegrown produce from local growers. The fall brings a flurry of excitement. Working in cooperation with our neighbor, Green Acre Farm, we celebrate the apple harvest for nearly two full months. This includes fresh pressed apple cider, homemade pies, pumpkins, crafts and of course, our famous fry cakes! Our season does not end though until Christmas Eve when the fresh cut trees, handmade wreaths, poinsettias and garlands have all sold.
Green Acre Farm & Nursery continues to be a family run business. Although Jack Sr. (1950-2002) is no longer with us, he has taught us well over the years and the Edmond family is ever present. You can still find Millie of course, around the store, touching base with old friends and pitching in wherever needed. Jack Jr. manages the nursery and can diagnose and remedy almost any garden ailment. Janice can be found managing the store and answering fertilizer and chemical questions. Joe, ‘The Hummingbird’ is always busy managing the greenhouse, answering questions and being Mr. Fixit. Mike can be found assisting customers, making the endless amount of deliveries and keeping the loading area ship shape. Kim attends to the office and helps keep the greenhouse stocked in an orderly fashion.
At Green Acre we pride ourselves on our knowledge, our service, our quality, our compassionate ears and friendly smiles.
