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 celebrates its 64th Anniversary this Spring.

      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 then 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 helped manage the farm greenhouses recently, as well.  

      Growing over 1000 varieties of Annual Flowers and traditional Spring Bedding Plants, the family farm offers unique Artisan Floral Hanging Garden Designs and patio planters. 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 USDA CERTIFIED ORGANIC vegetable plants and herbs.

    You will discover unique new floral varieties as well as heirloom plants at Yerke's Frog Alley Flower Farm. The Frog Alley centennial farm is open to the public from
late April to early July.

Pictured above , left, are Gilbert's grandparents Minnie and Henry Yerke.  Above right are his granddaughters Sky and Aurora.  The Yerke family was later blessed with two grandsons, Leo & Spencer, and granddaughter Magnolia Rae. (yup, guess they're bragging a bit here)
