Our Mission

Our mission is to provide our customers with a quality product at a good value with higher than anticipated customer service. We are dedicated to fostering long-term relationships with our customers and employees. Our philosophy encompasses performance, market effectiveness, and ongoing improvement.



When Barnes Greenhouses was established in 1890, by Benjamin & Elizabeth Barnes, they grew tomato, lettuce, and radish plants in one small greenhouse. The vegetables were harvested and distributed to local markets by horse and wagon or by rail.

Today Barnes Greenhouses grows nearly 130,000 units of plant material at their 7-acre growing facility and distributes by truck to retailers all across the Midwest. We specialize in high quality potted plants, baskets and patio planters including flowering annuals, vegetable plants, perennials, foliage, and fall mums.

The garden center opened in the late 1980s and continues to expand each year.  It offers a chance for local customers to buy high quality plants, straight from the grower.  We offer a wide variety of gardening extras; seed, soil, fertilizer and garden décor to name a few.  Our friendly staff is proud of the exceptional customer service we provide.
