Farm History

Spring Creek Growers - Generations

4 Generations
& Counting

Spring Creek Growers’ roots go back four generations to 1921 when Elizabeth and Fritz Michel began growing produce for the Houston produce market on their family farm in southwestern Montgomery County near Spring Creek.

The tradition continued with granddaughter Carla and her husband Bob Jones, who began a Choose-and-Cut Christmas Tree Farm in 1990, creating a destination for Houston families to experience the magic of a real Christmas tree.

In 2004, Bob and Carla took the company in a new direction, growing annuals for the local landscape and retail trade. Years later, their children — Lauren, Evan and Kristen — and a close-knit team have grown the operation and its expansion in Waller, Texas.

Both the nursery and the Christmas Tree Farm operate as one company under the Spring Creek umbrella. Since then, Spring Creek Growers has “grown transformations” with the core values of family, fun, quality product, teamwork, customer service, and old-fashioned values that we trust will endure for generations to come.
