Zentek Farms Where Fresh Is Best!
It was 1914 when the Zentek family first opened their farm in a very rural Cheshire, Connecticut.
For 65 years the farm prospered and in 1972, Zentek Farms began raising plants and vegetables. Today, we proudly continue the tradition as an exceptional supplier of wholesale potted plants, hanging potted flowers and vegetables.
Throughout New England, New Jersey, New York and Long Island, we reliably deliver healthy, robust plants to retail outlets, nurseries, plant and garden centers. Our
'easy to unload' cart system makes product transfer simple and efficient. Every aspect of our business involves our personal attention. The entire process from the first planting and watering, the daily hands-on care by our growers, all the way to shipping and accounting is marked with a personal sense of commitment and dedication.
Our indoor growing capability includes an impressive
5 acres of covered and open-sided greenhouses enclosing thousands of flats of annuals and 10" hanging baskets and plants. We farm 65 acres.
It's the reason Zentek Farms has remained in business since 1914. 100 YEARS and still GROWING!!
