About Us

For six generations, the Yerke family has been growing in Wisconsin. The family agribusiness began in the mid-1800's with Great-Great Grandpa Albert's dairy farm and field crops. His son Henry later raised vegetables, herbs and flowers for Wisconsin farm markets.

When Grandpa Harold built the first greenhouse in 1954 people from all over Southeastern Wisconsin discovered Yerke Greenhouses and traveled to the Mukwonago Frog Alley Farm for flowers each Spring. The Greenhouse business celebrated its 60th Anniversary in 2014.

Fifth generation Gilbert and wife Gail and family expanded the greenhouse operation in 1987, opening a new Garden Center near the village of Mukwonago. Almost 20 years later they again focused on relocating back to where it all began at the family's historic Centennial Farm on Frog Alley Road.

Yerke Frog Alley Greenhouses "The Flower Farm" reopened in Spring 2006, continuing to offer the best regional selection of bedding plants, perennial flowers and floral hanging gardens. The youngest of four children, son Christopher joined the family business from 2004 thru early 2011, operating the Wales Hwy 18 Spring Greenhouse and Frog Alley location along with Gilbert. Daughter Nateal also helped with the family greenhouse business.
In 2009 the Yerke family was blessed with two more grandchildren , Leo and Spencer, joining Sky and Aurora who are pictured above. (yes....guess they're bragging here)

Today daughter Nateal has rejoined the family business and helps direct the growing operation and manages the retail business, as well.  Growing over 1000 varieties of Annual and Perennial flowers, they offer unique Artisan Floral Hanging Garden Designs along with annual and perennial flower varieties each spring. You won't find a better selection of vegetable and herb plants anywhere else with over 100 varieties of vegetable plants alone. The Yerke family also offers CERTIFIED ORGANIC vegetable plants and herbs.

A member of Mukwonago's "Flower District", you'll find unique new floral varieties as well as heirloom plants at Yerke's Frog Alley Flower Farm.

The Frog Alley farm is open to the public from late April to mid July.
