Full-Service Florist, Greenhouse & Garden Center

Nunan’s Florist & Greenhouses
Throughout the Years

Nunan’s Florist, Greenhouse & Garden Center is located at 269 Central Street in Georgetown, Massachusetts. Nunan’s is the North Shore’s premier floral designer for weddings and events.  We also provide exemplary residential and corporate landscaping services, and interior plantscaping design/implementation. Regularly, Nunan’s offers a variety of classes on floral design and hosts seasonal events throughout the year, which are open to the public.

Albert D. Nunan started Nunan Florist & Greenhouses as a florist shop in Saugus, Massachusetts in 1917.  Later, he relocated to Georgetown, Massachusetts. After a long and successful career, Albert passed the business down to his son Ken, who owned and managed Nunan’s for many years. In 1985, Ken was ready to retire and found two people who were eager to purchase the business.

Steve Flynn Sr. was born and raised in Middleton with 7 other siblings. During the summers and after school Steve and most of his siblings worked at Middleton Greenhouses located right down the street from their family home. During his high school years Steve knew he wanted to have a career in the agricultural world. A few years later, having a family of his own and pouring all his time into his work, Steve wanted a business of his own. Bill Guerrini was the grower there and a best friend to Steve who also lived in Middleton. Bill had the same passion for the agricultural world as Steve and spent most of his days on site taking care of all the crops. The two together decided that purchasing a place of their own was the best decision for them and their families. So, after meeting with Ken Nunan, a deal was made, a partnership was formed and an old business took on a new life.

Respectfully keeping Ken’s family name on the business, Steve and Bill grew Nunan’s into a larger and more diversified business. Over the last 30 years, Steve and Bill turned Nunan’s into what is today a full service florist, greenhouse & garden center while incorporating landscaping, plant rentals and interior plantscaping into the business. Bill is semi-retired now but comes in several times a month to help with all the crops in the greenhouses. Steve’s sister Maureen followed Steve and Bill from the beginning and is the Manager of the Garden Center area where you can find all your indoor plants. Steve’s sister Maryanne is the Office Manager, his wife Christine works in the office, his son Stephen Jr. now has the role of Owner/General Manager and his other son Brody is a full time employee. Stephen Jr.’s son Jordan, now 3rd generation, is working full time on the property. Steve Sr.’s 3 daughters, his other siblings as well as grandchildren, nieces and nephews are always eager to lend a helpful hand during the busy spring, the holidays, or any special events when needed.

Next Generation, New Ideas

Stephen Jr. resides in Georgetown right next to Nunan’s. He has 4 children and has followed in his father’s footsteps. You will always see him on the property 7 days a week. Growing up in the family business Stephen Jr. has learned a great deal about the business, the agricultural industry and the need to stay diversified due to the slow seasons. Today we see and hear about Agritourism which involves any agriculturally based operation that brings visitors to a farm, such as the corn mazes and pick-your-own pumpkins. Going with this thought and doing a lot of research, Stephen Jr. proposed the idea of adding a mini golf course to the business and calling it Nunan’s Garden Golf. How does a mini golf course relate you might ask? Well, Nunan’s mini golf course is a very well designed garden atmosphere with no structures such as dinosaurs and windmills. It is a peaceful walk through beautiful gardens as you enjoy your game of mini golf. They planted their own greenhouse grown crops of annuals, perennials as well as nursery stock they carry yearly in their nursery. Many of the unique material is labeled so if you come across something you like, just flip over your score card and write down the plants you like on the “plant wish list” so you can return at your convenience and find them in their nursery or plant area.

 If you have an appreciation for exceptional design, top quality products and friendly attentive service, a visit to Nunan’s Florist, Greenhouse & Garden Center is a must.

Gold Prospecting Adventures for the Whole Family

Catch the Fever – Gold Fever!

 

A Unique & Exciting All-Ages Activity

 

IMG_6496If you’re looking for an activity the entire family can enjoy, look no further! Gold Prospecting Adventures are a wonderful way to bring your family together. This shared experience will provide you with some incredible memories, a great story and, if you’re lucky, a pocket full of gold!

At American Gold Prospecting Adventures, we offer guided gold prospecting classes and adventures throughout northern New England and Arizona. We keep the group sizes small to assure you and your family have plenty of time to pan for gold. Our expert guides are with you every step of the way, helping you perfect your technique, answering your questions and sharing their own gold prospecting experiences.

Our Gold Prospecting Classes last three hours and are perfect for families with younger children or those of any age who are new to the pastime. You’ll learn about gold, where it comes from, how it travels and ends up in the rivers and streams of New England, and through the hills and deserts of Arizona…and the best way to find it. We’ll teach you how to pan for gold and run dirt through a sluice. You’ll have access to all the equipment you need to find your own gold—and you get to keep what you find!

Our Gold Prospecting Adventures are six hours and are best for those individuals or families who have previous experience prospecting. We’ll go beyond the basics and teach you how to read the river to determine the most likely places to find gold. We’ll focus on more advanced prospecting and panning techniques to make the experience more enjoyable and more productive. We may head to more remote locations, experiment with cracking bedrock, or spend some time helping you become skilled in how to utilize other unique prospecting equipment. With our expert guidance, you’ll have the abilities and knowledge you need to take your prospecting to the next level.

In addition to these planned events, we offer private adventures that can be customized to meet your needs.

Our guides are some of the kindest and most generous people in the business, and I consider myself fortunate to work with them. Dan Brown is the founder of the New Hampshire Gold Prospectors group and is an expert at dredging and highbanking. Bruce Roberts is also an experienced prospector with great skills and knowledge. Each of us has learned from the other and we look forward to sharing our experiences and knowledge with you!
