Slideshow: Tour Kawahara Nurseries
We present a behind-the-scenes look of our April 2009 cover story, Kawahara Nurseries in Morgan Hill, Calif.
March 25, 2009
Ranked at No. 40 on our Top 100 Growers, Kawahara Nurseries maintains a healthy, diversified customer base. The operation owned by Dave and John Kawahara has grown to serve large retailers, like Home Depot and Costco, without losing sight of its roots serving independent garden centers and landscapers. Regional chain Orchard Supply Hardware is another key customer.
We had the chance to visit in February, just before spring was getting underway in California. The Kawaharas have built their business on signature crops and are dedicated to perfecting production. Check out their production facilities and product offerings in the slideshow below.
