In 1988 Hope Mountain Nurseries was born out of a passion for growing plants and a deep desire to raise our children while working from home. We felt a bit like true pioneers in those early days starting out at the foot of Hope Mountain with a piece of land, a small cabin, an outhouse, a 10’ x 20’ greenhouse, and big dreams. Growing primarily herbs and vegetables starts we were thankful for the nurseries that gave us a chance, bought plants out of the back of our Subaru wagon and eagerly ordered more.
They say from humble beginnings great things grow and grow we did! Our sons, Caleb, Elijah and Boaz have literally grown up in the business. They were right at home in their ‘Johnny Jump Ups’ suspended in the greenhouse and accompanied us on countless deliveries to local nurseries in their car seats. It was a rewarding yet crazy time in those early days, balancing life with little ones and work.
We now have six commercial greenhouses, a remodeled cabin complete with indoor plumbing and the same gorgeous view of Hope Mountain. Our family has continued to grow as two of our sons are married and have children of their own. We are thrilled to see the second generation of babies in their ‘Johnny Jump Ups’ back in the greenhouses! Our youngest son is now a senior in High School & works with us during the spring busy season.
Our plants can be found at retail nurseries and markets throughout Southern Oregon & Northern California. Over the years we have expanded our product line to include annual & perennial flowers, herbs, veggies, grapes, berries, & colorful hanging baskets. We’re so glad we pursued our dream & created this business! We feel so incredibly blessed to love what we do and do what we love!
In 2013 our families passion for gardening has led us to expand our farm & along with our son Elijah & his wife CC, sell organic produce at a newly formed Farmers Market in Cave Junction. It’s an amazing privilege to follow the birth of a seed, to a plant, to putting ripe produce into a customer’s hand. We’re excited to see where this newest venture will lead us and look forward to the journey.
