Taylor's Greenhouse, started by grandparents Bill and Betty Taylor, has been a part of the Lawrence Country landscape for over 30 years. Working with Grandma and Grandpa Taylor on this farm is all our family has ever known. It's always been a mixture of hard work and family fun. Over the years, Taylor's evolved from a vegetable farm and market to a greenhouse and nursery business. We provide everything from spring bulbs to Christmas poinsettias. Nancy Ervin, Taylor's daughter, has keep the business running as a part of her parent's legacy.
While Taylor's Greenhouse works year round to meet landscaping needs of folks all over North East Arkansas, the favorite time has always been fall. When that time of year rolled around, there was always a special excitement -- mums and pumpkins as far as you can see. So, when it was time to expand the business, a Harvest Fest seemed like a natural next step. "I have always wanted to do this," said Lori Simmons of Taylor's Greenhouse. "Growing up my family always had a harvest party. We wanted more people to come so we decided to have a huge party." We worked hard as a family to get the first year off the ground.
And thus was bornTaylor's Harvest Fest 2010!
