Ordering Plant Starts
Every spring we sell a wide variety of organic, heirloom, garden starts, and 2020 is no exception. Come check out what we have for you. All of our starts are grown from seed on our farm and are strong and healthy plants grown with love. Our plants are grown with certified organic soils and fertilizers.
We are at three farmers markets in 2020, Haywood Historic Farmers Market in Waynesville on Saturday morning, ASAP ABTech Thursday morning market in Asheville, and Enka-Candler Tailgate Market on Thursday afternoons. We popping up at Haywood Common Restaurant in West Asheville on Fridays from 11-3:00. Come fill your belly and your garden. You can also find our plants at Riverview Farm and Garden in Canton, NC. As of May 1st, we will no longer be taking online orders. Thank you to everyone who placed orders with us this spring. It was a wonderful tool to get our plants to folks who needed them. If you missed online orders, just come visit us at the market, we would still love to see you.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak we are working hard to develop a system to insure you can get our plants with less risk to your health. We have touchless payment options via square and PayPal. We have also changed our process in the booth to insure that no one else touches your plants except us. We are wearing masks and sanitizing hands frequently to insure that we all stay healthy and safe.
We ask that people take proper safety precautions that include social distancing when picking up their plants. Do not come to get them if you are sick or think you may have been exposed to cv-19. We hope you will help to keep us well so we can continue to provide this critical service to our community in this time of great need. Thank you so much for supporting our farm and helping insure we will be here in the future to keep you growing!
