About Us

Van Houten Farms started in 1946 when James Sr. came home from WWII and started a dairy farm.  The dairy evolved into a busy produce stand and eventually into a full service garden center.  Today, we are Rockland County’s premier destination for superior annuals, perennials, hanging baskets, roses, and vegetable and herb plants, direct from our own greenhouses. We also carry a full selection of flowering shrubs, evergreens, trees, groundcovers and gardening supplies.  Our trained and experienced staff is here to help you pick just the right plants from our huge selection, as well as answer all of your gardening questions. As spring transitions into summer, we offer a full selection of fresh and local produce, highlighted by our famous super sweet corn. At the end of summer we kick off our Music In The Garden concert series, combining our passion for local food and drink with our love of live music.  Fall brings a bountiful selection of our own-grown hardy mums and pumpkins. After a little break following Halloween, we showcase the most beautiful fresh-cut Christmas tree display in the area, alongside our own handmade fraser fir wreaths.

Thanks for checking us out, we look forward to seeing you!
