A little about us....
Rodger Bilbrey was born and raised in Winter Haven, Florida. Through the years, many of the Bilbreys in our area were involved in agriculture and it was as such in Rodger's family. Rodger grew up in the citrus industry and learned early on about taking care of the land.
In 1981 he started his own business (Bilbrey Nursery) and owned it until the family property was sold in 2000. From 2000 until 2002, he was nursery manager and grower for Polk Training Center for the Handicapped in Lake Alfred. In 2002 he became Nursery Manager/Grower for All Native Plant Nursery in Pasco County which closed in June 2012. Concurrently with the nursery, for four years he was also Farm Manager/Grower for Magnolia Organics, a Certified Organic farm in Wesley Chapel, Florida, which closed at the same time as the nursery.
Rodger has always been passionate about growing - whether it deals with vegetables, fruits, plants, trees and so forth. To him, it has never been a weekend hobby but very much a way of life. When Magnolia Organics shut down, it brought us to the realization that we wanted to have our own farm and continue working the land - our land - and produce what we believe are the best vegetables around. One of our primary goals is to show our customers how locally and organically grown produce can benefit them and their lifestyle.
