From humble beginnings a garden center has grown!
Fairview Gardens was started by Chanda Gebhardt in 2000 with one greenhouse, 2 cats (Buster & Sweetie) and a lot of hard work. Eric and Chanda have been working together since they were married in 2002.
The site was once an actual working dairy farm, Fairview Holstein Farms, owned and operated by Laura and Clarence Koeps. Their farmhouse still stands on the property. The pictures above show some of the changes to our site over the years. The Koeps’ dedication to quality in agriculture drives us to a keep clean, healthy environment for our plants.
Change is constant at Fairview Gardens. While we keep our focus on gardening and home decor, we are also expanding to serve the unique needs of Central Minnesota and concentrate our energy on satisfying our loyal customer base.
We are literally growing all of the time! We hope that you take time to come out and Enjoy the View !
