We are the third and fourth generations of the Michel family to operate this farm located in southwestern Montgomery County near Spring Creek. Carla’s grandparents, Elizabeth and Fritz Michel, purchased the farm in 1921 and together with their son, Maurice (Carla’s dad), grew and sold produce for the Houston produce market. In fact, Maurice was born and raised in the historic farmhouse which now houses the bakery and gift shop. Over the years, the farm has produced vegetables, watermelons, turkeys, and cattle. Today, we grow and harvest approximately 20 acres of Virginia Pine and Leyland Cypress trees for the Christmas season.
4 Generations & Counting
Our full-time, year-round wholesale nursery operation was started in 2004 at the farm and soon we added a second greenhouse facility located near Waller, Texas. Seasonal perennial and annual color as well as poinsettias and specialty hanging baskets are produced and shipped across Texas.
