The Goers family has been in the greenhouse business for four generations. Phillip Goers, his wife Karen, his son Christian and daughter Sarah currently manage the greenhouse.
Vernon Goers grew up working at his father's greenhouse in La Grange, IL. He eventually went on to start a business of his own and he purchased a small greenhouse in Hinsdale, IL. The property consisted of a house and three glass greenhouses that were originally built in 1919. More greenhouses have been added around the original three, since the Goers Family took over in 1966.
The head grower, Scott Miller, has worked at the greenhouse since 1987.
The family has been growing a full line of bedding plants, vegetables, mums and poinsettias for 50 years.
Little Known Fact: In the early days of aviation, pilots used the greenhouse as a visual reference to fly to, what is known today as, Midway Ariport.
