There is always a ton of good information in SAF's E-Briefs. The one I received yesterday included the news that Pajaro Valley Greenhouses, Watsonville, Calif., has been sold to Rocket Farms based in Salinas, Calif.
It's interesting to us because Pajaro Valley is No. 79 on our Top 100 Growers list. So we'll be getting to know Rocket Farms a bit better now. The news is interesting, as there is so much going on with our list.
In addition to Pajaro Valley, Powell Plant Farm (No. 18), Bell Nursery (No. 20), Baucom's Nursery (No. 62t), Boven's (No. 71) and Ulery Greenhouse (No. 97) have all made major moves in the last year. The 2008 version of our Top 100 list will appear in the May issue of Greenhouse Grower.
