The Heinz Brothers Story

father and son

Heinz Brothers have been in the plant business since the 1940s. The 60-year-old company started as a specialty wholesale seedling company serving the national market. In 1979, Joel Schrock from Geneva, Illinois, bought the business from Heinz Brothers. In 1985, Joel moved the business to its current location on Main Street. In 1990, the decision was made to shift the wholesale business into a premiere greenhouse and garden center for the Fox Valley area. After Joel retired, his son, Jay, picked up the reins. Heinz Brothers proudly continue to be family owned and operated.

Marcel Post

In loving memory: Joel F. Schrock ~ 1938 - 2014
