CJ VAN BOURGONDIEN, Inc started with one man wanting to settle down and start a family while living the American dream. Going from a bulb salesman, working for his father from Holland, to a business owner in the United States, all started in 1916. Cornelius John Van Bourgondien bought 36 acres of land in West Bablyon, NY and established a greenhouse business in his name in 1939, incorporated. Today you can find John Van Bourgondien’s children Bob, Mark, and Tracy continuing the traditions of the family business. Family is everywhere in the greenhouse.
