About us


If it's strange, we want to try it. If there's a tree that's only known to grow in some forgotten corner of Uzbekistan, please smuggle us some seed.


We'll try anything. They said pecans would not grow in Wisconsin. They were right. Darn. They usually are right. But once in a while we get lucky.


Of course we don't believe in insecticide or pesticide or homicide. Those are bad things. But we do like our woodchipper; for making mulch. Just for mulch. 


Get emails of farm happenings, escapades, and flash u-picks. Of course, we won't give your email to anyone. Promise.
