About

Our History

 

An unknown upstart in 1993, when we began operations in 1920/s vintage greenhouses, North Fork Greenhouse is now widely recognized as a premier grower of Long Island's highest quality ornamental and culinary crops. Our success comes as the restul of hard weork, guidance from Cornell Cooperative Extension Service of Suffolk County and active participation and support of family and friends who shared the hard work with us. 

In our earliest days, most retail nurseries hesitated to purchase plants from a newcomer they had never heard of, but a few decided to give us a chance. They were the first to discover that our "Garden Delights" virtually sell themselves. We have never advertised, but our reputation for quality and service has spread anyway, by word of mouth. 

In 2002, to meet rising demand for our products, we moved to our present site, which combines the benefits of automated process controls with hands-on horticulture. this approach is producing happy thriving plants and happy customers.
