Barlow’s is a historic family homestead and horticultural business that was purchased in 1983 by Stephen and Leslie Barlow.
The history centers around the Barlow Flower Farm that is it is located in Sea Girt, a small coastal town in New Jersey, approximately 60 miles south of New York City.
The Original History of Farm Circa 1807
The original Barlow Flower Farm, consisted of a farmhouse built in 1807, one retail greenhouse, ten small growing greenhouses, a retail shop that was formerly used for produce sales, and a garage for production. Early expansion emphasized improving the growing facilities. As sales grew, existing facilities were moved or converted to increase both indoor and outdoor retail space and each year saw new production greenhouses erected. The current shop has expanded to 1,200 sq. ft. and houses a gift & home decor department, silk plant & flower design center, containers and seasonal decorations.
Growth of a Full Scale Garden Center
During the fall of 2004, Barlow Flower Farm became Barlow’s and went through a renovation of the retail facility. The two original retail greenhouse structures were removed and replaced by a 10,000 sq. ft. European glass greenhouse. Along with the retail renovation, Barlow’s increased the number of growing greenhouses to 28 and the outdoor growing area to 1.5 acres.
