Uncle Waynes Tomatoes, Inc. started over 20 years ago when I realized I could not buy tomatoes like my late uncle Wayne use to grow and give away to family and friends. When my first try produced more starts than I could grow, I asked neighbors, friends and co-workers if they wanted to buy my extras. They did, and they wanted more. And so my hobby business was born more by accident than plan.
I incorporated in 2009 for two reasons. I am near retirement and I wanted to protect my personal retirement funds so my loving wife and I won't end up on welfare and if and when the time and person(s) come along, transfering ownership would be easier.
We primarly sell tomato starts, but do open our garden to u-picks and sell to a few local stores. When I do retire, soon I hope, I intend to increase our fruit production and sales.
The last two years, we have had nearly 300 varieties to tomatoes available for sale. When asked, "Why so many varieties?" I reply, "Because as much as I enjoy garden fresh tomatoes, I enjoy people more. And people keep telling me about their favorite variety and ask me to grow them." More than half of the varieties I grow I can put an customer name or face to.
Uncle Waynes Tomatoes, Inc. provides plants, supplies and information growers need to enjoy home grown produce. "Heirloom and Unusual" is our trand mark.
