We are the Gregors. A close, genuine family who enjoy spending time together and on the farm. Tom and Patty are the parents of 4 wonderful children, as well as the founders and owners of Gregor Farm & Greenhouse, Inc.
Tom manages all aspects of the Greenhouse. Patty oversees wholesale accounts, buying, advertising, and personnel. Arlene is responsible for accounting and keeping Rex active in the Greenhouse. Even Tom & Patty’s four children enjoy “helping” when needed. Gregor Farm is a traditional “family” farm business
What started as a hobby over 20 years ago has grown into a full-time greenhouse operation for the Gregors. Back then Tom was working in construction; Rex was in sales. After a full days work, both hit the fields. The 12 acres were planted in vegetable crops to be “trucked” to market. Every weekend, the ’57 Studebaker would be loaded to capacity, and Rex headed for the Minneapolis Farmers Market where, to this day, Gregor Farm remains as a Grower.
The business was Incorporated in 1985. Today, the Greenhouse’s square footage is approximately 25,000 heated greenhouses, 5,000 in cold frames, and 25,000 in outdoor display/retail areas. Greenhouse crops include: annual spring bedding plants, flowing houseplants, hanging baskets, perennials, poinsettias, shrubs, trees, aquatic plants, and fall garden mums. The Gregors take great pride in offering high quality, unique, and popular plant material with expertise of their knowledge and love of plants. Seasonal produce is also sold through the summer and fall.
Tom is currently on the Greenhouse Committee of the Minnesota Nursery & Landscape Association. Gregors are members of the following: Bedding Plants International, Minnesota Fruits & Vegetable Growers Association, Minnesota Grown, Ohio Florist Association, and Northwest Suburban Chamber of Commerce. Tom is also actively serving on the City of Medina Park Commission. He is Captain/Treasurer on the Hamel Volunteer Fire Department and a member of the Hamel Lions. Patty is currently a Board member for the Chamber.
The Gregors also volunteer for the Hamel Rodeo.
