"We are a family farm and have been for over 28 years. We work with our 3 children, Jesse, Jason and Erica, who have been working with us since they were old enough to pick vegetables. We have been at our current location since 1995 where we started with a farm stand and 1 greenhouse. We now have 14 greenhouses to start and grow all our own annuals, bedding plants, hanging plants, patio pots, perennials, shrubs, roses and vegetable plants. We also have outdoor growing space that we use for growing chrysanthemums, garden vegetables, cut flowers and Christmas trees. We also have 2 1/2 acres of pick your own strawberries (typically picking mid June to the beginning of July) and pick your own pumpkins (typically weekends only in October) and a corn maze at our PYO facility on Story Rd, about 5 minutes from our main farm. We also have an ice cream stand and serve Bliss Ice Cream made by New England Ice Cream who have been making ice cream since 1929. Please call the farm for hours, directions and more information.
We have three wood fired furnaces that we use to heat our big greenhouses. We installed the furnaces back in 2008 when fuel prices were outrageous and could not justify passing this cost along to our customers. We have since reduced our oil consumption by over 85%! This change in how we heat our greenhouses has allowed us to maintain our prices as well as the quality of our plants for the past few years. We try to keep our fossil fuel consumption as low as we can by burning wood for fuel to heat the greenhouses, recycling as many plastic pots as we can and reusing the plastic carrying trays instead of giving them to the customers. We use mostly paper, instead of plastic, cups in the ice cream stand because it is recyclable, unlike styrofoam containers.
We pride ourselves on providing everything from quality plants for your homes and gardens, to freshly picked produce for your families, to decorating your homes for the holidays.
If you have any questions or problems with your plants, please bring your plant to us for a diagnosis. We cannot make a diagnosis over the phone, we really need to see the plant in question. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are in need of gardening advice or plant questions, we would be happy to help!
Thank you for your patronage and continued support,
Dan, Lea, Jesse, Jason & Erica and families!
