(Website not compatible to all phones. Sometimes you can scroll right of the plant lists to see the price on a mobile device and sometimes the tables with species, cultivars and prices don’t show up. Best if viewed on a computer.)

This is a small permaculture nursery (that propagates thousands of plants annually) in northwest IL (USDA Hardiness Zone 5b) that specializes in growing hardy, low-input, disease and pest resistant plants that produce in a variety of conditions (sunny, shaded, wet, dry); fruit trees, nut trees, berries, vines, natives, perennial vegetables/herbs, and groundcovers for edible hedges, pollinator gardens, food forests, native plantings, agroecosystems, agroforestry, silvopasture, and foodscapes to fund locally adapted perennial crop breeding projects to continue to supply new generations of resilient perennial crops for local food systems. This is a small operation and prefer if you could pick up plants rather than shipping. Being a small operation, I have limited amounts so make sure to inquire ASAP about availability.


*Contract growing, pre-orders, consultations, bulk pricing, planting and design services, pruning, custom/on-site grafting, rehabilitating old fruit trees/orchards, removing invasive species, and other plant-based services available if inquired. (Pollinator Gardens, Food Forests, Native Plantings, Agroforestry, Foodscapes, Edible Hedges, Pruning, etc.)
