Hoffmann Family of Companies has signed a letter of intent to purchase Ferguson Valley Nurseries of Marthasville, MO just days after acquiring Town and Country Nursery, adding to the growing Missouri portfolio of wineries, vineyards and landscaping companies.
Ferguson Valley Nurseries is a family business of more than 40 years that provides fresh trees to the public, as well as a large variety of perennials and shrubs. The company also provides delivery and installation and pride themselves on exemplary customer service. The combination of Ferguson Valley Nurseries and Town and Country Nursery will further support the Hoffmann projects as well as allow for the growth of services to the area.
With the addition of Town and Country to the Hoffmann portfolio and Ferguson Valley Nurseries, additional support will be added to already announced projects such as the planting of vines on the hillside of Montelle, landscaping and maintenance of the former Emmaus Homes campus in Marthasville and planting of 5 acres of vineyards as part of the recently approved Hoffmann Lodge hotel being built between Church and Jackson St off Highway 94 in Augusta.
“We’re excited for the additional staff and management who are all staying on and joining us as part of the family of companies and being able to work together with both Town and Country and Ferguson.” Don Simon, CEO Town and Country Nursery.
The Hoffmanns made news in January with their $100million plan to put Augusta, Missouri, America’s first recognized wine region, on the map as a world wide wine destination to the likes of Napa Valley and France. The plan includes a luxury 5 star hotel, 250 passenger yacht, winery and gator vineyard tours, wine trolleys, a old time general store, gas station, bike shop, classic cars, bronze sculpture walk, world class dining and award winning wine. The Hoffmann Family of Companies through their acquisitions and expansions will create 500 jobs to the area and through additional acquisitions over the next three years will grow to over 1,000. To date the company has acquired five vineyards, four wineries and three businesses along with ten buildings in downtown Augusta and have started four businesses to date in the area.
