Owner and CEO


Zenen Valdes immigrated to the USA as a young boy from his native country of Cuba in the mid 1960’s. With support from his family years later he worked diligently to establish a successful sod and nursery business. Always valuing the freedoms and ethics of his new country, Mr. Valdes wanted to build a venue that would use a portion of its income to support many disadvantaged children and other worthwhile organizations. From the photo above it’s not hard to follow his childhood dream. Besides what young boy wouldn’t want to be Casey Jones. No wonder why we ended up with a train theme!
