Long Description:
Bradford Greenhouses is a true Canadian success story. In August of 1956 Francis Ferragine immigrated to Canada from England with his wife Chiara his son's Tony & Peter and his daughter Mary. For the next 4 years Francis and his family spent their time working as labourers in the Holland Marsh for local farmers. In 1961 Francis purchased property in Bradford and began growing a company. In 1975 Bradford Greenhouses opened a retail operation on Hwy 11 in Bradford and in 1993 Bradford Greenhouses open it's flagship retail store in Barrie. Today Bradford Greenhouses Ltd is one of the largest greenhouse growers and retailers in central Ontario. In 1999 Francis Ferragine passed away due to illness but his legacy and his family continue to grow. (Info from website:www.bradfordgreenhouses.com)
