Orchard Park Growers

Growing since 1969.

We love growing plants that people love.

A lot has changed since 1969, when John and Florie Schouwenaar purchased a parcel of land on Gregory Road and sold their first crop of peaches at the Ontario Food Terminal… but one thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment to quality, willingness to try new things and reputation for caring, honest and friendly service.

A business built on relationships

Since shifting our entire focus to growing top-quality plants back in 2000 our business has continued to flourish — we use our expertise and passion for growing to produce plants that generate excitement! 

But good business is about more than growing top-quality plants… It's about nourishing relationships and providing exceptional customer service to back it up. To us, that means good communication, keeping our word and providing the newest and best products, shipped quickly and reliably.

Perfection through partnerships with proven international breeders.

By controlling the growing cycle we offer our customers a product they can be proud to deliver to their customers — with quick turn-arounds, higher profit margins and less shrink.

The relationships we’ve built over the years have continued to flourish. We have a reputation for innovation, strict growing standards, pursuing excellence and being honest and trustworthy in all our undertakings — personally and professionally.

Beyond the relationships we have, as a family we attest to the Lord’s faithfulness and are truly thankful for His blessings to us throughout the years. We continue to strive to serve Him in all areas of life and rest by this providential care each day anew. To Him be the Glory.
