George Sant and Sons officially started in 1947 with George and Angelo Sant. That year Angelo had moved his farm from Toronto to this location. George began in the greenhouse by starting vegetable transplants meant for the field. As time went on he grew crops like cabbage, cauliflower, impatiens, you name it. George always worked hard, and he always tried new things. They grew more bedding plants and flowers over time. Eventually he branched out into flowers for the retail trade with his sons.
