Take this opportunity to learn the greenhouse trade at a local company built on family values. Located within walking distance of Olmsted Falls’ historic downtown, Uncle John’s Plant Farm has been providing quality plants to the Midwest since 1974. Our greenhouses were built in the 1920’s, at a time when Cleveland was king of the glass houses! While our rich heritage has given us a unique respect for historical agricultural methods, we’ve learned that success is found in the balance of combining time-honored traditions and pioneering innovation. We’d love to share our enthusiasm for this industry and our growing world with you!
