Owners Nick and Tom Baughman are proud to continue on their fathers business. Nick's wife, DeAnna joined them in 2000.
In 1948, George and Irene Kah founded the nursery with a little more than eight acres of land, a few plants, and a barn. Back then, they used small-scale, hand-drawn designs. As the business grew, they began to lease land to grow more of their own plants. In 1957, William Baughman was hired, and in 1968, he purchased eight additional acres of land which Bill and George, as partners, decided to use to plant shrubs. Over the years, their partnership grew as more land was acquired. In 1984, after George Kah passed away, Bill purchased the nursery from George's wife, Irene. The nursery has continued to expand over the years with many additions and new workers. Kah Nursery grew to nearly 40 acres, five polyhouses, two greenhouses, two shade houses, many equipment barns, an office, a year-round gift store, and a full-scale garden center.
June 17th, 2023 we are transitioning our model to a landscape palette and if you want to browse our plant material as you have done in the past, you will need to call ahead to arrange an appointment.
We remain family-owned-and-operated today, keeping the Kahs' tradition of excellence alive. However, we've moved into the modern era and now provide full-scale computer-based landscape designs.
At Kah Nursery our main goal is using plants and trees to make spaces beautiful. Our Company believes in creating a more sustainable earth for everyone, which is why we encourage everyone to add a little green to their lives. Our team is more than happy to help with plant selection and general advice. We’re here to help your plants thrive. Overwhelmed? Remember, all you need to get started is a single plant.
