Opportunity blooms: Laid off engineer buys flower farm from Milliken's legendary Glad Man
Carson bought a flower farm near his Milliken home. That was the start of his business, 934 Farms, which focuses mainly on growing the colorful, sword-like gladiolus, known to flower enthusiasts simply as “glads.”
It all started when a friend handed him a Denver Post article about a Weld County farmer, Marvin Bruce, who was growing glads. After 27 years of growing and marketing the flowers, Bruce has earned himself the title of “The Glad Man.”
Bruce still maintains nine rows of the flowers on Carson’s field — which, Carson jokes, are much better looking than his own 104 rows.
Carson said he read the newspaper article about Bruce and was struck by how unique the business was. So much so he would come home from a long day of work in Longmont, pick up the tattered paper from his coffee table and thumb through it again and again.
“In the article you could really get Marvin’s passion for doing it,” Carson said, “and I didn’t know of any other gladiolus farms around here. I decided to go drive around until I found it. About 15-20 minutes in, I passed the field and I thought, ‘Hey, I’m just going to drive in and talk to him.’ ”
So he pulled into the colorful field and was met with a smile. Carson started asking Bruce questions.
“About two minutes into the conversation, he just kind of stopped and said, ‘Well, I tell you what, I’d sell you my business,’ ” Carson said with a laugh.
Both Carson and his wife, Jonie, grew up in farm country, and the couple had recently finished a c... (Greeley Tribune)Aug 15, 2016

Carolina Garden World employee taught himself everything about plants
County. He was the middle child of nine siblings. His mother, Carrie, loved flowers and had a wildflower garden. His dad, Arthur, worked for Milliken's Cotton Blossom plant. Tucker learned from his parents how to grow vegetables in their garden.</p><p>When he was 11 years old, Tucker was hit by a car driven by a drunken driver. He spent the next two years in a body cast. It was difficult for him to get around in the body cast. Sometimes, he would lay on the front porch to get some sunshine. Wheelchairs were not readily available at the time, so Tucker got around the best that he could.</p><p>GT Ledford was a family friend who visited Tucker on a regular basis. Ledford worked at the Northside Curb Market not far from Tucker's home. Ledford told Tucker when he got out of the body cast, he had a job waiting for him at the market. Tucker worked for Ledford in produce and learned about bedding plants sold in the market.</p><p>Later, Ledford moved the store to Hillcrest, near the area where Chick-fil-A is located. By then, Tucker was working at the store after school and in the summer. He was 16 years old at the time. </p><p>"Old GT always told me to know everything about the business and then stick to it,” Tucker said. When he graduated from high school in 1982, he went to work full time for Ledford. Tucker worked for 10 years at Hillcrest. The business moved to Pine Street in the mid-1980s and became Hillcrest Garden Center.</p><p>Jay Moore has work... (Spartanburg Herald Journal)
