Homestead Greenhouse was founded in 1989 by its current owners, David & Julie Drake.  The Garden Center is located on property that was once the family farm owned by Julie’s grandparents, Matt and Nellie Jones.  Since its inception in 1921, the farm has served the family well.  In the early days, a dairy and row crops were the farms mainstay but the family also grew strawberries which were trucked to Kansas City for sale.  The concept of a greenhouse business came out of the owners love of gardening and the outdoors.  Today the farm buildings are gone, in their place stands the retail greenhouse and gift store.   The family tradition of putting the land to good use continues as we work to produce the most beautiful plants for our customers to enjoy in their own home gardens!
