One of this year's Centennial Farms belongs to EllaFaye Johnson of Marquette County. She tells Mid-West Farm Report that her late husband, Wayne, did not want to continue farming the way his dad did, and so they started Westfield Nursery & Florist in 1946 to serve the surrounding communities. Pictured from left to right: Sam, EllaFaye, Anna and Wayne Johnson in the greenhouse in 1947. Wayne's parents, Sam and Anna, frequently worked in the greenhouse and flower shop. The greenhouse provided spring bedding plants (geraniums, petunias, etc), vegetables & throughout the year chrysanthemums, carnations, poinsettias, Easter lilies, etc. They had plenty of plants and flowers to sell to local customers and to use for weddings, funerals and special occasions. EllaFaye's daughter, Barbara, helps share the history of the Centennial Farm.
