Remember, the best and safest time to plant is from mid-December through March and on into April depending on weather conditions.

Some of the more unusual items will be limited quantities and once they are gone … well, they’re gone. To ensure you get what you want, it is best to order in advance, especially on big orders. We accept checks, cash, and most major credit cards.

These are not the plants sold in the Big Box retail stores. Our plants are from certified commercial nurseries backed by local University research and support. Excellent root stock and the correct variety for our growing area. Plus, when you shop with Holmestead Farm, you get the advantage and benefit of our knowledge and experience we’ve gained right here on our own farm. We’ve done all the experimenting and trial and error so you don’t have to. Have a growing or plant question? Just ask. We love to share knowledge and talk about farming and gardening.


Look over the lists on the Plant & Tree Sale Page to review the wide selection we are offering during this huge sale. Then, call and place your order. We hope to see you during the sale. Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season!
