Our Team

Ed Van Hoven

Founder & President

 

Third generation grower Ed Van Hoven grew up working in the greenhouse business.  Ed learned from his grandfather Aart Van Wingerden and his father Jerry Van Hoven the ins and outs of the greenhouse industry. He learned what it meant to work hard, help others, and leave the rest up to God.

Every step of the way he has been guided by a good work ethic, his faith in God, and the support of his family.

Brandon Van Hoven

Brandon has grown up in the business just like his father, and aspires to continue the family legacy of growing exceptional flowers right here in Orange, Virginia.
