Welcome to the online home of Westcroft Gardens. We are the oldest family owned and operated farm in the state. Established on July 6, 1776, Westcroft is currently owned by the 7th generation of Macomb descendants and operated by the 8th generation.

Westcroft Gardens is a plant nursery, specializing in azaleas and rhododendrons. We grow our own shrubs, perennials, annuals and wildflowers, and also offer trees, herbs and vegetable plants. To help acid loving plants thrive in the mostly alkaline soils of the Midwest, Westcroft makes and sells its own acid soil conditioner: Greenleaf Compound. 

Westcroft has a beautiful four acre botanical garden open to the public year round that boasts the many varieties of azaleas and rhododendrons, including hybrids created here at Westcroft by former owner Ernest Stanton. The gardens are also available for wedding and event rentals.

Westcroft also provides an additional 13 acres of woods that are decorated for Halloween Hayrides.
