2015 Annual Tree & Plant Sale Begins 02 FEB

Your Local Source for Excellent Plants


It is finally here. Time for our BIG Annual Holmestead Farm Tree and Plant Sale. We will open February 02 at 8 am.

Thousands of plants to choose from!

Many of you pre-ordered your trees and plants so you can begin picking them up on Monday, February 02, 2015. If you did not pre-ordered there will be plenty to choose from in our nursery, so don’t worry – we have tons being delivered as you read this. Review the lists of plants and trees we will offer when the sale begins.

Remember, the best and safest time to plant new stock is now 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.

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.

Get Ready to Plant in February and March 2015!

Grow your own blueberries and other fruits!

SAVE BIG ….. Don’t Miss the Holmestead Farm Annual Tree & Plant Sale.
