Henn's Plant Farm, LLC is owned and operated by Bryan Henn Jr. and has been serving our area for 49 years. His sister, Alice, is the office manager and along with other long time employees are available to help with all of your planting needs. The nursery is open year round growing seasonal annuals, vegetables, perennials, fall specialty crops, and a wide variety of shrubs and trees.
Henn’s Plant Farm, LLC originally began in the 1950s when Mr. Frank Henn begin growing flowers in the field, digging and selling them. He then erected a small propagation house and adding other wooden greenhouse structures as the business grew. Some of these houses were moved from the location off Sweeten Creek Road in Asheville to the current location in the Hoopers Creek Community of Fletcher in the summer of 1971, at which time son Charles joined the business.
More wooden houses were erected, and the future brought steel structure houses which now total twenty heated and twenty-four ground cover and shrub houses, with four acres of open nursery area.
The years have added Charles, a wife Betty, son Bryan, and daughter Alice. They have six beautiful grandchildren.
2018 brought changes as Charles officially retired after owning the business 46 years as well as growing up working with the family. Bryan took ownership of the Nursery January 2018 and has now worked full time for 20 years and worked part-time while growing up. Late April 2018, daughter Alice joined the office as Betty's assistant. 2019 brought on Bryan's daughter Courtney as a part time helper. Another generation with some interest in the farm.
The end of 2020 brought the end of "the orignal Henn crew" as Betty retired after 46 years of service. She worked almost all positions possible at the farm over the years. Charles and Betty can now begin to enjoy retirement together.
