Canopy Gardens Remains Family Operation With Partnership Deal
Pete and Pam Augustyn, owners of Canopy Gardens, have added their son-in-law and daughter, Cory and Lindy Price, as partners.
“The hunt for someone to take over our farm has finally come to a very successful close,” Pete Augustyn, owner of the hydroponic produce farm for the last 22 years, said.
The new couple will transition into the business over the next several years.
Although the Prices are very successful gardeners, and have become very familiar with many aspects of running Canopy Gardens, both couples want to be sure that the transition takes place smoothly, and so the Augustyns will remain in the business for a few years.
Canopy Gardens provides hydroponically grown, pesticide-free tomatoes and cucumbers to Antigo and the surrounding areas. Through the years, they have promoted their produce as not only locally grown and pesticide-free, but also, as it is available in early spring, as sweet-tasting as homegrown, summertime tomatoes.
The greenhouse is located east of Antigo off Orchard Road. Its produce is available at grocery stores across the area.
