Founded in 1952, Lyle and Dorothy Kuester purchased Handy Andy’s Nursery from the original owners (Sue and Andy Manz of Williston) in 1996. Lyle worked for Sue and Andy in his youth, and after several years of running his own lawn sprinkler business Lyle purchased Handy Andy’s from them. Sue and Andy Manz owned and operated Handy Andy’s for nearly 45 years.
When embarking on a new business some of your first and most loyal help comes from family. Lyle was blessed to have a great deal of labor help getting started from his father John Kuester. The business is now run by Lyle and his son Andrew/Andy Kuester. We are proud to be a part of the growing community of Williston and look forward to continuing to serve you with quality plant products.
Here, we grow nearly 50% of our annual flowers from seed, in house, and on location. ALL of our vegetable starts are grown from seed, directly by us. This ensures a healthy and hardy plant for our climate. It also ensures that our products are free of harmful pesticide and herbicide residues that are concerns people have for their vegetable gardens.
