Kuhlmann's About Us

Kuhlmanns - Old team Picture

Our history begins in 1962 as a Pick your Own stand started by Dietrich and Elizabeth Kuhlmann on a modest stretch of rented land.

While things may have changed, Kuhlmann’s continues to offer you the best in locally grown produce, plants, trees and much more. We have over 300,000 square feet of greenhouse space, which means we have room for an incredible selection of unique gift ideas, garden décor, tools, and a fantastic floral shop that can cater to any need.

Come in and see us!
