It all began in 1927, when Manuel and his wife Rita, opened M. Araujo & Sons dairy and produce. In 1949, his sons Manuel and Caesar took over Araujo Bros. Produce. Having to support two families, the brothers concentrated on growing produce, bedding plants, and geraniums for the retail store. Manuel Jr. retired in 1978, and Caesar and his son Ken, continued raising plants and vegetables. In 1981, Caesar retired and Ken chose to continue on the family legacy.

In 1984, Ken and his wife Darlene opened up the retail stand called Araujo’s Cabbage Patch where they sold fresh vegetables, fruits, and plants. Customers came from miles away for the fresh produce and quality plants. In 1990, Ken and Darlene relocated to our current site to expand the garden center. Customers are still coming from miles away to experience the lifelong commitment Ken and Darlene have made to grow and sell quality plants. In 2001, Ken and Darlene’s daughter, LeeAnne, joined the business, and has become the fourth generation to continue the legacy. Gardening has become a generational hobby for us and we hope for our customers as well.
