Holmestead Farm U-Pick

WINTER TREE & PLANT SALE GOING ON NOW! Click here to see our huge offering of trees & plants. 

We want to sincerely thank everyone who came out last weekend for the opening days of our 2020 Tree and Plant Sale. It was the largest turnout on Opening Day EVER! It appears the word is getting out through word-of-mouth adverting that we have the best plants and the best prices in our area. And our planting and care advice is always free.

In anticipation of what appears to be rain all of next week, we are extending our hours this coming weekend so our customers can get their trees and plants and get them in the ground before the rain comes. We will be open Saturday, Feb 8th from 8 am to 4 pm and Sunday, 1 pm to 5 pm. Hope to see you this weekend. We will still be open every day next week if you don’t mind a little rainy weather – come see us.
