From the beginning until now

The Karrer nursery was founded in 1925 by Jakob Karrer. Family members in three generations grew vegetables, which were delivered to a sales center in Zurich. A small part of the fresh vegetables were also sold directly at the nursery.

From 1978 to 1988 the two brothers Ernst and Walter Karrer also traded in vegetables. The self-produced vegetables and purchased fruits were delivered to hospitals, restaurants, canteens and various shops in the area. At that time, the nursery also had a vegetable shop for direct sales.

Since 1989, more potted plants and interchangeable florets have been grown in addition to the vegetables, initially in a small scale, that grew larger from year to year.

Today the nursery Karrer is managed by Fredi and Evelyn Biedermann-Karrer. A well-trained team of gardeners helps to maintain a wide range of plants - around 160 different types of plants are currently being produced.
