Glei's Orchards & Greenhouses
Glei's is the Place To Go For Things That Grow!!!
We have a wide selection of annuals, perennials and nursery stock available every spring. Landscape design and planting services are also available, as well as delivery if you can't get that tree you really want to your house.
Don't forget your potting soil, pots, rakes, shovels, and anything you could possibly need to get your yard ready for summer.
Summer vegetables and fruit:
Amongst our acres and acres of apple trees is land we dedicate for growing summer vegetables. Sweet corn is picked fresh everyday, making it the sweetest corn around. We also have a variety of Michigan grown vegetables and fruits that we either grow or get from other Michigan farmers, like strawberries, asparagus, blueberries and peaches.
Glei's grows over 20 varieties of apples, so we're sure to have your favorite! Honeycrisp is one of our most popular. Apple harvest starts in the middle of July and runs through the end of October, so the availability of varieties varies depending on the time of year.
We press our own cider and treat it with UV light to preserve the crisp taste that you associate with fall. We start pressing cider when there's enough varieties for good flavor and keep on pressing as long as we have apples. You can enjoy our cider throughout most of the winter some years. With every batch, we set some aside that are preservative free.
What's fall without the perfect pumpkin? We've got you covered for all your fall decorating needs. Pumpkins, gourds, mini pumpkins, Indian corn... we grow it all! Now is also the time to starting thinking spring... spring bulbs that is! Tulip, daffodil, and hyacinth bulbs are ready to be planted now, and we have every color imaginable!
The weekends between Thanksgiving and Christmas are some of the busiest times here at Glei's. We have several precut trees to choose from in all shapes and sizes. Or you can go out into the field and cut your own - we even have loaner saws. If you want something a little different, try having a tree flocked - colors vary by year, but white, black, red, blue, and green are favorites.
It simply wouldn't be the holidays without the vast display of poinsettias in every color imaginable filling the greenhouse. We provide several churches with their holiday orders, and they are always a beautiful addition to the holiday services.
While much of our business tends to lean toward particular seasons, we are open year round. Birdseed, local honey, maple syrup, popcorn, Michigan made products, and fresh fruits and vegetables are always available.
Make sure you're ready for anything by keeping that propane tank for your grill or camper full. Gas fills are available at the Hillsdale Store only.
The bakery will provide those fresh made apple cider donuts - the perfect compliment to fall and apple cider. The bakery is located in Coldwater, but rest assured that those yummy donuts will find their way to Hillsdale. In addition to donuts, we also have homemade fudge! Stop by for a sample!
