Our History

Hollis and Charlotte Flora started Richland Gardens around 1963 at Stelvideo, Ohio.  At first, they were raising tomato plants for local farmers.  After a few years, they began to grow tomatoes, lettuce, and cabbage themselves  In 197-, they moved the family to Indiana for a year leaving the greenhouses behind.

 

When they moved back to Ohio, this time to Horatio, they put up a couple small greenhouses and began growing melon seedlings, which they then planted and harvested to take to market.
