It's An Open House, and You're Invited!

05 December 2019   Ashley Mortimer

We are getting ready for our Annual Christmas Open House at Mortimer Nursery! Nursery visitors will enjoy food, shopping, and door prizes on December 7, and you are invited!! 

The Mortimer Farm and Nursery story started over 30 years ago. Gary Mortimer grew up in Iowa, where he and his family owned a corn and soybean farm. When Gary was in middle school his mom decided she was over the cold Iowa winters and needed to move somewhere warmer. She and Gary found themselves in Phoenix, Arizona. 

In high school, Gary worked for a landscaping and nursery company in Phoenix and discovered his passion for plants and design. After high school, the company he was working for sent him to Prescott for a small landscape project. He fell in love and soon began trying to convince the company to let him start a branch in Prescott. They did not agree, but Gary still decided he needed to go North anyways.

Gary started Mortimer Landscaping Company in 1987. He added Mortimer Nursery to the mix in December of 1995. In 1996 he met his wife, Sharla, and they began to grow the business even further. Now Gary, Sharla, and their four kids are enjoying the life that they have built over the years, which includes being a part of the Prescott and Dewey communities, and sharing their passion for plants, food, and the land with locals. As a family, they are growing their nursery business, and enjoying their love of ranching and farming.  They are passionate about caring for the land, animals, and the environment in Dewey, at Mortimer Farms. 

The Mortimer family and team invite you and your family to visit Mortimer Nursery and enjoy the beautiful color plants bring, the fresh air, and pleasant pine smell! On December 7th, we will be holding our Annual Christmas Open House! Visitors will enjoy food, shopping, whimsical gift items, and door prizes from 11 am until 3 pm. It will be an event for the entire family and one we won't want to miss!

From us to you, we wish you a Merry Christmas!
