About Us

Our Story

Chesterfield Valley Nursery, Inc. was started as a one-man operation in 1983 by Jim Graeler under the name of Chesterfield Gardens. As the company grew, so did the need to incorporate and add new employees, some of which were family members. In May 1989, Chesterfield Valley Nursery, Inc. was born. Not only has the number of employees increased but also the size of the nursery. The Flood of 1993 came and went. Along with the trials and blessings of that flood, Chesterfield Valley Nursery has continued to grow and thrive through the grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Today we have over 40 employees, all of which we consider “family”. We sit on the family’s farm and have many samples of our work for you to browse around and see. From the outdoor kitchen to the waterfall, flagstone pathways to stone walls that wind around - one may view the perennials, shrubs, and trees that are showcased throughout. Come take a look and “get lost” in our nursery where a sense of serenity will overcome you.

Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
-Genesis 1:11-12
