Local Expertise for Five Generations

A. J. Rahn Greenhouses on Gray Road is located in Cincinnati in an area once known as Wooden Shoe Hollow. In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, growers from this area produced vegetables which were grown in cold frames and hot beds, then sold at various local markets. At one time 19 family-run operations were located on Gray Road. By 1930, most of these businesses raised fall and winter crops of lettuce and spring crops of tomatoes in greenhouses.


In the 1960’s, A. J. Rahn Greenhouses earned its reputation for growing quality flowering plants in the Cincinnati area. We retain our proud heritage and expertise when it comes to garden plants.


Today the fifth generation of the Rahn family offers Cincinnati a wonderful selection of high-quality flowering bedding, holiday flowers, houseplants, vegetable and fruiting plants. We are open year-round and offer a unique and exciting variety of high-quality plants grown on location.
