Stark Bro's Nurseries & Orchards Co. is one of the oldest businesses in the United States (founded in 1816). Well before the westward expansion, in a time when agriculture was the foundation of prosperity in this country, James Stark moved from Kentucky to a plot of land in the Louisiana Purchase. Five years later, that plot of land became a part of the state of Missouri (1821). Here, Stark planted a superior apple orchard that became his family's livelihood.

From the Civil War to the invention of the automobile, both World Wars, a Great Depression, sending a man to the moon, the technological explosion of the 20th century... Stark Bro's Nurseries & Orchards Co. has thrived for 200 years.
