The company was founded in the 1930’s by our grandfather Steven Dzen then our father Donald Dzen Sr. Originally the farm raised potatoes, tobacco, and dairy cows. We started raising strawberries and Christmas trees in the 1970’s and blueberries around 1980. We opened Dzen Garden Market of Ellington in 1998. Began growing our own greenhouse flowers a few years later. Opened the Christmas tree farm on Sadds Mill Rd in 2011. Joe and Donny are third generation growers.
