"Klepac Greenhouses has been in business for almost 60 years, and from our beginnings, we have been doing business with the Messicks, first with Darrell when he was with Ball and then with the Messick Company after its formation. When it comes to Easter Lily bulbs, the Messick Company continues to prove to be the premier broker. They are in the fields during harvest and are hands-on during the cooling and transportation phases. The Easter Lily bulbs we buy from them consistently outperform the others, due in large part to their dedication and diligence. Even though the Messick Company is known for brokering quality Easter Lilies, we consider them a leader in bringing new and exciting crops to the potted plant producer. Several items that are now part of our core production were at one time small trials that Messick brought to us. They go to great lengths to understand us, our market, and growing conditions. That gives them the ability to recommend new crops that will work in our niche. A term that is often overused is "service after the sale.
" The Messick Company, however, exemplifies this time after time. They understand that their success relies on our success. Their cultural knowledge helps them produce successful crops. They periodically walk our crops with us to ensure the highest quality. We look forward to many more years of a business relationship with the Messick Company that has contributed to our prosperity."
