Spring Plant Sale Information
Looking to grow healthy, delicious food for your family this summer? Want to add fruit to your landscaping? Want to buy plants that will grow and thrive in our Minnesota climate? You've come to the right place!
Each Spring we sell a variety of berry plants including blueberry plants for your home landscape, and vegetable, herb, and flower plant starts for your garden or to grow in pots. Plants are ordered through our website in advance and picked up at the farm or we are open for in person shopping. You can come to the farm and shop for the plants you would like. We are open every Thursday through Sunday in May. Thursday and Friday our hours are 9:00am to 5:00pm. Saturday and Sunday our hours are 9:00am to 3:00pm.
Our plant sale is unique because we offer plants that have outstanding flavor and do well in our soils and climates. The varieties of berry plants that we offer we have grown successfully on our farm. The garden starts (vegetables, herbs, and flowers) are grown by a local vegetable farm we partner with, Waxwing Farm. Waxwing starts the plants in their on-farm greenhouse and grows them using all organic practices. We have chosen varieties that Waxwing has found do well in our area and taste great. Plants you buy at big box stores and even many local nurseries are grown in warm, southern states and shipped to Minnesota in the spring. They aren't adapted to our climate and are generic varieties that often lack flavor.
We are excited to share that this year we will also be offering native plants. We are partnering with Sogn Valley Farm to offer native wildflowers and grasses that both add incredible beauty to your landscape and provide habitat for butterflies, bees, beneficial insects, and other wildlife. Karin from Sogn Valley Farm is an ecologist and expert on pollinator conservation. Many of the seeds for these plants were collected from remnant prairie and oak savanna on their farm. They start all the plants in their on farm greenhouse and grow them using organic practices.
We are always available for growing advice and questions. Text (507-301-7183) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) us anytime with questions.
