EDEN, NY (WKBW-TV) — It's a family farm that has a long tradition of giving Spring a little kick-start. W.D. Henry & Sons on Gowanda State Road in Eden has been getting their Easter flowers ready for months.

This is a transition time for the farm as they move out the Easter flowers and get ready for the Spring crop.

The farm dates back to 1888. Dan Henry says he is the fifth generation in his family to be a part of the operation.

"Our core customer base is made up of independent garden centers, florists, landscapers, especially around the holidays we work with a lot of churches and fundraisers," said Henry.

The farm includes just over three acres of greenhouses.

"In the dark days of winter, it's nice to be in the greenhouse. You've got warm temperatures and green plants," he said, adding, "It's a good place to be when it's snowing outside - that's for sure!"
