Local couple takes ownership of two local businesses

Adam and Sarah Dinsmore with their daughter Emma, and sons Cash and Silas.

Just in time for the 2017 spring gardening season, the GoodSeed Farm Country Garden Center will reopen under new management. Local residents Adam and Sarah Dinsmore, who also own Dinsmore Supply in West Union, are the new owners of the landmark garden center located just west of Winchester.
It’s been a busy winter for the Dinsmore family. Last October Adam and Sarah Dinsmore took over operation of Dinsmore Farm and Fleet, a farm supply and power equipment dealer located on the commercial strip in West Union. After purchasing the family business from Adam’s parents, Ron and Diane Dinsmore of Winchester, they renamed the business “Dinsmore Supply” and began an ambitious makeover.
With plans for a second location, Adam and Sarah have also purchased GoodSeed Nursery in Winchester and are reopening it for the 2017 season as “GoodSeed Farm and Garden”. Former owners Steve and Marjorie Boehme of Peebles will continue to offer their design-build landscape service, now called GoodSeed Farm Landscapes, from their Peebles farm. The Dinsmore’s garden center and the Boehme’s landscape operation will share the GoodSeed Farm name and a common phone number, but are separately owned and managed.
The Dinsmore and Boehme families share a close friendship and enjoy working together. “Adam and Sarah have a wonderful family,” says Steve Boehme. “It’s a perfect outcome for us to pass the torch to them.” Steve plans to devote full time to landscape work.
“We’ve always loved GoodSeed Farm” says Sarah. “I’m really excited about working in the garden center this spring.” The Dinsmores plan to gradually expand GoodSeed Farm, adding straw bales and mini-barns this year. “One step at a time”, says Adam.  “In future years we want to make GoodSeed Farm and Garden a year-round farm supply, offering animal feed, power equipment, fencing and gates like our West Union store.”
The Boehme family is working closely with the Dinsmores to help them get established. “GoodSeed Farm has signature events, like our Country Garden Mother’s Day Party and the GoodSeed Garden Expo”, Steve explained. “We’ll be working alongside Adam and Sarah to keep these traditions alive.” Steve also plans to continue his weekly gardening advice column, “Let’s Grow”, featured in nine newspapers in southwest Ohio. Marjorie Boehme and son Stephen James will help out at the garden center and behind the scenes.
A homeschool mom with three children, Emma, Cash and Silas, Sarah Dinsmore will have her hands full this spring season. “I love a challenge, and I love GoodSeed Farm” says Sarah. “I’ll have a wonderful team of people to depend on at the garden center, and Adam has experienced people helping him at Dinsmore’s. I know we’ll be tested, but with all these great people working together I know we can make these businesses better than they’ve ever been.”
GoodSeed Farm and Garden will be open seven days a week starting March 1. March hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon-5 p.m. on Sunday. Details and directions can be found at www.goodseedfarm.com or on Facebook at Goodseed Farm and Garden.
The garden center is located at 9736 Tri-County Highway (just of Route 32 at Route 62) in Winchester and the phone number is (937) 695-0350.
