the scottsdale farms story
Scottsdale Farms is a family-owned garden center, nursery, and working farm and has been providing gardening services to the North Atlanta area for over 20 years. Built in 1998, Scottsdale Farms is nestled on 65 beautiful acres conveniently located in Milton, GA.
As a way to help pay for his college expenses, Luca Gianturco began Scottsdale Farms Christmas tree lots in North Atlanta. Shortly afterwards, Luca and Kathy met in college and together they expanded Scottsdale Farms. Their Christmas tree business has been in continuous operation since 1982.
In 1998, Luca and Kathy bought the land to build their garden center. After visiting Vermont to look at barns and talk to timber framers, Luca designed the barn with an emphasis on simplicity and pleasing proportions. Two craftsmen from rural Vermont helped raise the wooden frame.
Luca and Kathy’s goal for the Christmas tree business, garden center, landscape business and the Cafe has always been the same: to provide quality products and service at a fair price, treat customers and employees well, and create a fun shopping experience.
