Pests and diseases are a part of nature. They can render an entire crop useless. Good planning can significantly reduce the risks, but doing so needs to be an end-to-end solution.

Strawberry Season is Over for 2022

It is with great sadness that I must announce that George Rofner, owner of Richmond Nursery, son of Ludwig Rofner and Anna Spiegel, passed away peacefully in his sleep at the age of 73 during the early hours of the night on October 23rd, 2010. He leaves behind his beloved wife Claudia Rofner, daughter Debbie Rofner (Curt Millar), son Peter Rofner (Sue Secord), and cherished grandson Jakob.

The people involved in Richmond Nursery gives us our character we have to this day. A thanks to all the people whom we've worked with over the years.

Take a historic walk down memory lane of the Richmond Nursery Strawberry Farm.

Horticulture is farming and nothing has more trial, tribulations, and failures than farming.
