The History

How it Started

TNT Farms was started as a small hobby farm in 2007 by Nate and Tommy Thompson. We operated a small roadside stand during the summer months to make a few extra dollars. We would plant a few rows of tomatoes in the greenhouses and some various items in the fields and then sell them at local farmer’s markets. Our products were mostly beefsteak tomatoes, and included peppers and a few other miscellaneous items.

As the company grew, we began to expand at an exponential rate; in 2012 TNT Horticultural Professionals LLC was formed to better encapsulate our vast array of services. We are not just a produce farm anymore. TNT also runs a full service garden center and landscape company out of our Catawba Island (Port Clinton) branch.

We offer services from landscape design and installation, mowing, paver patios and kitchens, irrigation, pruning and maintenance, to wholesale produce and flowers. We pride ourselves on being the only greenhouse and garden center on Catawba Island that grows 100% of the product that we sell to our customers.

TNT Horticultural Professionals LLC currently runs and operates two locations. The produce end of our business is located and operated at our 15 acre farm in Bellevue, while the entire landscaping and garden center is located and operated at our 5 acre location on Catawba Island.
