Owners Lucille and Alain Bouvier met in a tomato patch. Literally! Back in 1972, Lucille was working as an agriculture student at the Brooks Research Station where Alain was employed as a horticulture technician.
Lucille, originally from Lac La Biche, AB studied chemicals and pesticides at Vermilion Agricultural and Vocation College in Vermillion, AB, and graduated in 1973.
Alain is from Gravelbourg, SK studied horticulture at Olds College, AB graduated in 1969 and started working at the Crop Diversification Center at Brooks in 1971.
They married in 1973 and settled on a farmstead near Mazenod, SK in 1974, taking up a mix of farming and livestock. When their bedding plants started outselling the livestock, they sold off the rest of their cows and bought more seeds. The farm became known as Bouvier Greenhouses.
In 1991, they partnered up with a small group of greenhouse growers from southern Saskatchewan and started up the Plant Ranch Inc. Over the years, it has evolved into a family-owned and operated business.
