Bower & Branch Expands Grower Network
Bower & Branch, the e-commerce brand consisting of a network of independent growers and garden centers across the United States, has expanded its grower network with the addition of Oregon Pride Nurseries, Inc. in McMinnville, Oregon.
“Oregon Pride is an excellent grower in all aspects. They grow an outstanding specialty conifer line that brings both quality and selection to the Bower & Branch product line” said Jeff Thompson, Bower & Branch’s grower relationship manager. “They are in the Oregon Department of Agriculture’s GAIP (Grower Assisted Inspection Program). They are also in the SANC (Systems Approach to Nursery Certification) Program. These are just two examples of how they strive for excellence in every aspect of their operation.”
Frustrated that independents were being left behind, Mark Van Hoef and his wife, Carolyn, started Oregon Pride Nurseries, Inc. in 1989, and they have been committed to independent garden centers ever since.
Oregon Pride Nurseries, Inc. is Bower & Branch’s sixth network grower along with Eaton Farms, Decker’s Nursery, Natorp’s, Rusty Oak Nursery, and Woodburn Nursery & Azaleas, which is also located in Oregon.
