In 1978 Alan and Cheryl Koch opened Koch Orchids in Newbury Park, California. At this location they concentrated on orchids that could grow outdoors in California and some Cattleyas. Soon the Cattleyas became the major interest and started to require more greenhouse space. A 16 x 30 foot greenhouse and two 10 x 60 foot lath house were soon outgrown and a new location was needed. In 1983 the move was made to Northern California. With the move, a new name was in order and Koch Orchids soon became Gold Country Orchids. For two years we leased greenhouse space in the Sacramento Valley, and in 1985 purchased 10 acres in Lincoln, California where we are today. We now have 3 modern greenhouses with rolling benches and computer controls to house our orchids. With 16,000 square feet of growing area and three climate zones we have plenty of room for all of our lovely plants.
