A Misting System Makes for A Great Day At High-Hand Nursery

High-Hand Nursery is a gorgeous garden property located in the heart of Loomis. While the misting system enhances the temperature of the environment, High-Hand is a premier provider of plants and gardening supplies while preserving the horticultural traditions of the area. The nursery has helped introduce new plant species and varieties to the region while also promoting sustainable gardening practices. High-Hand Nursery is a prominent fixture in the Loomis community, serving as both a retail destination for gardening enthusiasts and a reminder of the region’s agricultural heritage. This historic environment showcases unique shrubs, Japanese maples, and floral varieties in a setting that has been created as an experiential, interactive destination where guests can immerse themselves in horticultural displays, culinary tastings, and artisan creations. In addition to being an active nursery with landscaping services, High-Hand sports a Café, Craft Brewery Tastings, a Flower & Gift Mart, an Olive Oil Company, Mercantile & Art Gallery.

A Misting System to Cool Customers and Promote Healthy Plant Growth
A walk through the nursery brings guests around paths bursting with color and lovely sculptured water fountain features.    A giant greenhouse presents different annuals and perennials for purchase. The greenhouse is fitted with a custom misting system that helps to regulate the climate in hot weather. Placed along the ceiling rafters of the greenhouse, the misting system at High-Hand Nursery is a welcome sight for shoppers seeking plants that are not wilted.  The misting system also cools the ambient temperature in the greenhouse, allowing people to take their time to explore selections comfortably.  While the greenhouse’s composition is open-air, when you walk into the greenhouse in warmer months, you definitely feel the welcome temperature change.

Gourmet in a Glass Terrarium
Ever dream of enjoying lunch surrounded by the lush beauty of blooming treasures? 

Nestled within the nursery is a glass type of terrarium (not literally but conceptually) that houses the High-Hand Café. Serving farm-fresh, locally sourced ingredients and handcrafted food, the mouthwatering menu satiates after an afternoon strolling through the nursery grounds. Our Koolfog Taste Team had a lovely spring brunch in this “living” green scene with samplings and shares including:

  • Fresh Made House Lemonade
  • High-Hand’s West Coast IPA
  • Crab Cakes
  • Farm Fresh Vegetarian Benedict
  • High-Hand’s Scrumptious Cinnamon Roll
