SEVILLE, Ohio — Although they both grew up at their parents’ greenhouses, Mike and Patti Boyert, of Boyert’s Greenhouse and Farm in Medina County, were also encouraged to try something else.
Both were born into multi-generational greenhouse businesses in Brooklyn Heights that are still in operation. But their parents encouraged them to try something else — to see what they really liked.
For Patti, that meant earning a biology degree at Heidelberg University, and later working in a water quality lab in Coshocton. For Mike, it led to a degree in animal sciences at Ohio State University.
