A family known as Roozan family had a business of growing tulips, Daffodils and Irises every year in large quantity. It was grown to cover the Skagit Valley which was more than 1200 acres of field with 15 acres of greenhouses. The Roozen family had a company named “Roozen family and Washington Bulb Company, Inc”. William Roozen migrated all the way from Holland, having many years of experience in bulb industry. He started the bulb farm on only 5 acres in the start as he had a good hand and strong back over it. He used to work hard for long hours to accomplish his task. He saved money to buy used tractors and other equipment for farm
The hard work of Roozen’s family extended to six generations and they succeeded. In the start they raised the tulips in Holland. Roozen family worked with other farmers in the Skagit Valley before starting their own business in 1950. Later, after some years he bought the Washington Bulb Co which was initially founded by Joe Berger and Cornelius Roozekrans. In the year 1985, William Roozen gave the business to his five sons and a daughter. The Washington Bulb co farms around 2,000 acres of land each year and it grows annually.
