Willow Creek Wholesale Nursery is a new company formed from an old company.  Joe and Carla Carter have purchased the growing operations of Jayker Wholesale Grower Nursery as of January 1, 2016 and have named the new company Willow Creek Wholesale Nursery.

Joe and Carla have been employees and managers in Jayker Nurseries for a combined 30+ years and are excited to be able to acquire the operation that they have been so involved in.

Willow Creek grows deciduous and evergreen trees, upright junipers and shrubs in the field.  The Company will also produce shrubs, grasses, perennials and trees in containers.   Most of the infrastructure will remain the same.

Eric Celmer  will be the new Sales Manager, Bob Records  will continue in his role of  Container Production Manager and Chris Summerhays will continue as Assistant Field Grower along with our amazing production crews.  Working all together, we will keep the operation running smoothly.

Our plants are distributed into a 10 state area to existing and new customers.   Eric and Carla will be calling on customers and we welcome your visit to the nursery at any time.  Of course whenever you can come, we invite you to be a guest at our table.  We also look forward to seeing you at the area trade shows.

Willow Creek’s growing grounds are located at 25455 Lansing, Middleton, Idaho and at Nyssa, Oregon.   We grow plants to age gracefully!  You are always welcome to stop by the nursery for a tour or give us a call anytime with inquiries. Please feel free to stop by when you are in the area or give us a call.
