Koppes Plants is a family owned and operated business that was founded in 1949 by the late Max Koppes. And over 20 years ago, Koppes Plants developed a new growing system for bare root strawberry plants. This system cultures strawberry plants specifically for shipping to bedding plant growers who plant them into Jumbo 6-Paks. The Watsonville-based business had a website but it had fallen into disrepair and they lost it along the way. We started over and created a site within a month that utilized their photos and photographs from the Pajaro Valley Historical Association who helped them to research a photo of founder Max Koppes.
