|8:00 AM||to||6:00 PM|
Elsbury’s, a large grower in Hope, Ind., has been sold and is open for business. Last year, Gordon and Nancy Elsbury wanted to retire and put the greenhouse operation and retail store on the market, and for a while, it seemed like it was going to close.
But in January, Brian and Kim McKinley purchased the business from the Elsburys. Gordon Elsbury has been named head grower and Nancy Elsbury will continue her work with herbs. Other longtime staffers also remain.
In a letter received this week, the new owners say they expect year full of events, including the popular Mum Fest and Christmas Open House. To kick off the season, Elsbury’s Growers of Hope Inc., will have a Spring Grand Opening March 27, 2010. Call for details: (812) 546-4454.
