Chris Grant began selling vegetables and pumpkins on the side of the road when he was 14 years old. in 2006 Chris started Grant’s Plants after acquiring a small perennial company in Danvers Massachusetts producing groundcovers for landscapers and garden centers across the North Shore of Massachusetts.
Chris graduated from Essex Agricultural & Technical High School in 2008. He received an Associates Degree in Fruit & Vegetable Production from the Stockbridge School of Agriculture in 2010, and a Bachelors Degree in Plant, Soil, & Insect Science with a concentration in business from The University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2012.
In 2011 we began growing vegetables for the Salem Farmers Market and now vend at the Swampscott, Marblehead, and Cape Ann Farmers markets throughout the summer.
In 2013 Grant’s Plants was re-named Grant Family Farm to better reflect our business and values.
Today Michelle Grant (Mom) can be found tending the chickens and Aunt Diane can be found at the farmers market with the occasional appearance of Memmer (grandma). Warren (brother) is the lead mechanic when all things go wrong.
