Where It All Started

Ben A. Garrett “Buddy Ben” bought the property and the spring in the early 1920s and developed the spring into a swimming pool that would later become the home of a private country club called Nantze Springs, complete with a dance hall and a 9 hole golf course with sand greens. In 1991, the Nantze Springs Bottled Spring Water company was started by the Garrett Family: Dad Fred Garrett, a retired veterinarian, Bill Garrett, an attorney in Montgomery, AL, Ben Garrett, a veterinarian in Dothan, AL, and Malone Garrett, who had finished his masters in business and completed his thesis on bottled water. Fred Garrett wanted to use the land to develop a business that could stay in the family for a long time. Since then, Malone's son, Iverson, has joined the company.
