I started this company in the spring of 2006. My husband and his family moved here in 1990 and started Onos Greenhouses. In their greenhouses they produce cut tulips and lilies. They decided that they would try and grow as many of their own bulbs as possible so there wouldn’t be as much need to purchase their planting stock from Holland. They have grown from planting fields of under 5 acres in size to planted fields of 35 acres.
Currently the greenhouses are leasing land on Seabird Island, east of Agassiz and it is here that I have started my new business.
My business goal is two-fold. I first wanted to be able to allow the public to enjoy the beauty of our fields, allowing them to tip toe through 40 acres of tulips and take pictures to their hearts content. My second goal was to provide the public with Canadian grown bulbs that they can enjoy in their own gardens each spring.
