President & Founder
Growers Market, Inc., Abby Lee Farms’ parent company, was established in 1976 by Neal Brooks, the President and Founder. Starting from his backyard, Neal slowly and successfully grew the company to what it is today. As of today, Growers Market, Inc. has three prime locations around Arizona. These three different climate facilities allow Growers Market to grow everything naturally. One of the key concepts and mission is to ensure the public that everything is locally grown.
Abby Lee Brooks is the youngest daughter of Neal and Felice Brooks. Neal started growing and selling plants in 1974 when he was 12 years old. In 2005, Neal purchased 763 acres of farmland in Geronimo, Arizona. He began growing fruits and vegetables on a small-scale along with hundreds of acres of alfalfa. In 1985, Neal purchased a 3.5 acre greenhouse in Phoenix, Arizona. In 2013, Neal transformed his 3.5 acre, 120,000 Sq. Ft. plant greenhouse into a high-tech hydroponic growing facility. The modern Abby Lee brand was born.
