A GROWING HISTORY
Theut's Flower Barn began as the childhood dream of Bob Theut Sr. who grew up working on a flower farm in Macomb, Michigan.
While a bricklayer by trade, Bob always dreamed of having his own farm. In 1978 he bought an $800 rototiller and began producing field grown Creeping Phlox for Frank's Nursery.
The dream continued on as Bob bought property in Ray Twp and began growing Pansies and a few other crops. He bought two small greenhouses from someone going out of business and began to dabble in annuals.
While still bricklaying, Bob continued to farm, working day and night to make ends meet. With the birth of two sons and two daughters, he really had a new reason to build his business, as he dreamed of farming full time along with a new generation.
Bob's son, Robert III, is now a seasoned greenhouse grower working side by side with his father. Robert controls sales and production.
Currently, Theut's Flower Barn now has two locations , approximately 40 acres of greenhouse structures as well as a seasonal retail garden center in St. Clair.
And we still continue to improve and grow...
