Adults in back row from left to right: Robert, Mickie, Jeff and… (By Nicole Munchel )
The flowers are not the only things in bloom at Kroh’s Nursery year after year. In fact, this family business has deep roots that continue to grow in this Aberdeen nursery.
In 1980, husband and wife, Robert and Mickie Sachs purchased Kroh’s Nursery because they wanted to spend the rest of their lives working in a nursery and garden center. And after high school, their son Jeff started working the family business.
Today, Jeff runs the day-to-day operations and says, “I started working in the nursery with my parents when I was just 10 years old. I remember holidays and Mother’s Day, which are the busiest days of the year for us.”
Though Robert and Mickie still work at the nursery today, Jeff Sachs runs the business and has expanded what they offer with custom design/build landscape services including hand crafted stone walls and patios, garden pools and waterfalls, and landscape maintenance. Kroh’s continues to offer custom-made seasonal items and decorations as well.
Married with three young children of his own, Sachs says, “My children now come in to experience the holiday seasons at the nursery. I guess you could say the seeds have been sown for the next generation of our family business.”
