Minor’s Garden Center grows a large majority of our nursery stock locally at one of our nurseries. The Mequon Farm is the first farm we purchased and is the main farm for production. Because of the lack of space at the Garden Center, we mulch in evergreens and trees at the Mequon location; this ensures that plants such as spruce and pine can be spread out and maintain good quality.
Our plant stock is harvested and sold exclusively through Minor’s Garden Center and Minor’s Wholesale Supply Division on North 76th Street.
In 1976, the Mequon Farm, 10918 West Highland Road was purchased. The Mequon Farm has 70 acres, 60 acres of which are planted with shade trees, evergreens and ornamental stock. This farm was an old dairy farm with the house built in 1900 and the barn constructed in 1899. At the Mequon Farm you will see most of our mature evergreens, spruce, pine and arborvitate. We also grow all of our whitespire birch at this farm and have many younger shade trees planted there.
