would continue to work and grow the business for years, taking it from a small family farm and steadily increasing the size and scope of the operation, a tradition that they in turn passed on to the next generation. Today the farm is run by Jordon’s sons, Ken and Steve, and Stanton’s sons, Kirk and Kevin. They, like their fathers, continue to grow the business, distributing produce both locally and to many major cities east of the Mississippi River. To help accommodate the expanding business they purchased Doug Walcher Farms in 2003, an operation that specializes in green bell peppers, cucumbers, summer squash, eggplant, winter squash and fall ornamentals. With the addition of Walcher Farms, Holthouse Farms was able to offer the wet produce (lettuce, green onions, parsley, radishes, ect.) they’d been specializing in for years as well as a variety of new products their customers were asking for, making them a ‘one stop shop’ for many of their customers and continuing the growth that had characterized the company from it's beginnings.
