How it all started
Dunvegan Gardens started in 1952 with Bill and Hilda Friesen and their six children. They settled on the flats at Dunvegan (historic trading post) south of Fairview, Alberta. What started as a market garden bloomed into growing annuals and perennials in greenhouses. It expanded as the three brothers opened greenhouses in Peace River AB, Grim Shaw AB, Grande Prairie AB, Fort St John BC, and a seasonal greenhouse in Yellowknife. Today, the third generation is still in the greenhouse industry and has independent family-run greenhouses in Fort McMurray AB, Edmonton AB, Fort St John and Grande Prairie. For over 64 years, Dunvegan Gardens has served areas in Alberta, British Columbia and other regions of Canada.
