Jerry Faulring - Owner and Grower

Jerry started his career in 1970 after earning a B.S. Agronomy degree from Purdue, first working at Summit Hall Turf Farm in Gaithersburg, MD. In 1973 he co-founded what became a five state regional lawn service called Hydro Lawn based in Gaithersburg. In 1990 he started his nursery production career with 25 acres known as River Farm Nursery. The land for Waverly Farm was purchased in 1996 with planting begun in 1997. His responsibilities today include propagation, all aspects of field production, a broad interest in improving nursery production through many research initiatives, and various administrative activities. He says he is a businessman first who just happens to be growing plants, but his love of agriculture generally and enjoyment gained through the production of ornamental plants suggests he is a grower first.
