He has left behind a legacy …  five children, 19 grandchildren, five great grandchildren and another five great grandchildren on the way. Meyers Farms and Greenhouses was borne from a vision and along with a great work ethic, its strength continues to this day. Jim realized early that success was achievable through the talents of exceptional employees, including the Jamaican and Mexican contribution, and his family.”
