Szarek’s Greenhouse is a family owned and operated greenhouse business located in Westmoreland, NY. Bernie Szarek started it as a wholesale operation in 1997 with the help of his father-in-law Fred Atkinson. Over the years, Bernie & Fred supplied beautiful flowers, veggie starts, hanging baskets and fall mums to many of the areas well known nursery centers and retailers. With Fred’s death in 2000, many changes started.
In 2002, Denise, joined the business and in 2003 Bernie & Denise were married. Slowly over the years a transition to retail sales started and became complete in 2010. Heirloom tomatoes became a specialty and Three Goat Farm-CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) was added. The farm transitioned to organic practices and is proud to be a NOFA-NY Farmer’s Pledge farm. Both Bernie & Denise enjoy the personal one on one contact they have with all their customers.
