Desi and Brad Brown started Glacier Nursery in 1983 on twenty acres of prime Creston topsoil. During the early years both of them had full-time jobs and worked the nursery in evenings and on weekends. Using lots of hand labor they planted, watered, weeded and harvested the first crops. From the very beginning the nursery was known for its hardy plants and its personal service as a family business. That tradition continues today with a number of dedicated, knowledgeable hard working folks who assist them each and every day!
Today the nursery is a reflection of the commitment of many people in addition to Brad and Desi. That commitment includes serving our customers with quality plants and service, at a competitive price. For our employees we offer year round work at competitive wages with substantial fringe benefits. Finally, we owe a great deal to those in the community that have assisted us in getting started, from past employees to the businesses who have remained valued suppliers for many years.
We all look forward to continued improvement in the plants we sell, the commitment to our employees, and returning to our community the goodwill it has extended to us.
