We hope that The Greenhouse Mum & Pumpkin Patch is a place where all plant-lovers alike can shop, soak in the beauty around them, and even take a moment to enjoy one of the rocking chairs on the front porch of Maggy’s Place. Since we learn so much from those around us, we want to create a sense of community, where everyone (no matter how green your thumb is), can visit, share their experiences and learn from one another.
Every business has a beginning, and this is where you talk about yours. People want to know what opportunity you saw or how your passion led to the creation of something new. Talk about your roots–people wanna know you have some.
While Jimmy was still the Principle at Phelps Elementary, he decided he wanted to plant a few mums and sell them in the front yard. As more and more people came to buy mums, Jimmy decided to branch out and start growing small pumpkins & gourds grown on the family farm in Science Hill, KY. As business grew, so did Jimmy’s vision for “The Mum & Pumpkin Patch”.
Once Jimmy retired from Phelps Elementary he decided to add a Greenhouse and start a “Pick-Your-Own” tomatoes in the winter months. Thats when the dream started to really take shape. A few greenhouses later and he opened for his very first Spring Season.
Meet the Team
Here at The Greenhouse Mum & Pumpkin Patch we thankful to have such a great crew of family and friends (who we consider family) that work hard to help keep our customers happy and our business moving.
Those who are not pictured below are: Karen Thrasher (Jimmy’s wife of over 40 years), Barb Boyer, Roslyn Alison, Vicki Hood & Jim Foster.
Most of you might know him as Mr. Thrasher from his Principle and Coaching days. Jimmy is our fun-loving, caring, joke – telling “boss man”. He truly loves helping customers and giving them a place to come, shop and feel like family.
Dustin, Jimmy’s youngest son, has really stepped into the role of Co-Owner in partnering with Jimmy to make business decisions, managing day to day functions and doing a lot of the “heavy-lifting” for the business. Dustin has a passion for watching this grow and flourish and most importantly helping his family business be successful.
Ashley, Dustin’s wife, has helped around the shop for the last 5 years and works on helping both Jimmy and Dustin with marketing and sales for the business.
