our history

After spending much of his earlier years farming in the fields of Byron Center, Michigan, Lee Pell decided in 1970 to start his own greenhouse business.  It was very modest in the beginning, leasing greenhouse space and growing flats of vegetables.
 
After working independently for a year, two of his brothers, Bob & Ken Pell joined  the venture.  Lee focused on Sales, Bob on Operations & Maintenance and Ken concentrated on Shipping.  Years later, youngest brother Roger joined the family as Head Grower.
                          
                                  Owners: Lee, Ken & Bob Pell

Today, Pell Greenhouse Inc. is a Wholesale Greenhouse located in Hudsonville, Michigan and  has grown to a 12+ acre covered facility with 5+ acres of outdoor mum production.  They employ several full-time as well as seasonal employees while maintaining the same honest, loyal, and hardworking approach they started with in the very beginning.
  

our facility

At Pell Greenhouse, we have come a long way.  Established in 1970, we started by growing vegetables in the ground for winter harvesting and in 2 greenhouses, (24,000 sq. ft.) for spring.

Now, in our 48th year of operation, we have grown from a hoe-in-hand to a 550,000 square foot facility under cover, complete with cooler, loading docks, ebenflow flood floors and benches for propagating.  Outside we have 5+ acres of mum growing fields.
