With over 65 years of experience, the knowledgeable and experienced staff at Grangetto’s makes it the perfect place to get all your landscape, nursery, grove, irrigation, and garden products with four locations to serve you in Encinitas, Escondido, Fallbrook and Valley Center.

Grangetto’s was started by Edward Grangetto, Sr. in 1952 by supplying crop oils and fertilizers to the agricultural community. The locally owned and family operated company is now run by son Kevin Grangetto. "Our mission is quite simple and that is to be a resource for growers, landscapers and homeowners, and to provide quality advice and products to solve their growing challenges." says Grangetto.

Community service is a priority at Grangetto’s and they partner with local non-profits, FFA programs and the region’s Master Gardeners in their endeavor to plant a school garden in every school in San Diego County. Along with other local businesses like the San Diego Seed Company, whose heirloom seeds are sold in store, Grangetto takes the San Diego 365 trademark to heart, saying “we like to promote local products since we know the challenges of starting up a business and sustain it in our community.”

Kevin also serves on a panel of agricultural specialists at Archi’s Acres to assist graduates prepare business proposals as they graduate the apprenticeship program. “We must find ways to motivate local administrators and program coordinators to encourage young people to consider farming as a career opportunity,” Grangetto adds.

Grangetto says “we are blessed to have served our community for over 65 years and look forward to growing with our customers and fostering new relationships.”
