Dare to be Distinguished

Featuring:

  • Some of the Most Unique and Collectible Peonies Available Anywhere; and

  • A Delightful Selection of Fruits and Vegetables for my CSA and Farmers Market Customers

 

Welcome to Private Stock Produce & Perennials 2017!

Hard to believe, but Spring 2017 is just right around the corner.

This season I will continue my progression from exclusively growing and selling perennials to a further concentrating  on fruit and vegetable production.

As I have in the past I will be offering potted daylilies and lilies for sale, along with cut peony flowers.  I will also sell limited numbers of peony roots.

However, my new emphasis will be on community-supported agriculture (CSA), adding a few more shares -- offering up to 12 this season  Be sure to check out the Community Supported Agriculture tab for more details about the program or how to sign up for the 2017 season.

My trials with new fruit varieties that may hold promise for wider distribution in Montana are ongoing and expanding.  I am most excited about the potential for  Haskap, a new berry related to a honeysuckle that tastes delicious and has a nutritive profile that exceeds blueberries.  This year my sweetest variety yet -- Aurora -- should bear more heavily, and some of the trial varieties bred by Dr. Maxine Thompson, Oregon State University professor emeritus, should bear enough for me to sample them.  In addition, I will be acquiring excellent new varieties from Berries Unlimited and Prairie Plant Systems (Canadian-bred varieties) to grow on and sell in Fall 2017 and Spring 2018.  Please read more under the Haskap Berries tab about what I believe will truly be a fantastic new superberry in the future.   Also, I am excited to see how my Canadian bush cherries, some varieties of which are purported to have the fruit size, sugar content, and firmness of sweet cherries, will produce and taste this season -- as they are finally of a size to expect some production from them.   Learn more about them as well under the Gardening Articles tab.

I wish you all a great gardening season.   I look forward to supplying quality vegetables and fruits to my CSA customers and to visiting again with many of you at the 2017 Helena and Townsend Farmer's Markets.

PRIVATE STOCK PERENNIALS TO HOST OPEN GARDENS IN 2017

In 2017 I plan to host a few open garden tours and educational days out at the farm.  Though it is a bit premature to give exact dates -- I like to wait until I know when the peonies will be at the showiest and my haskap will be ready to sample -- look for an announcement of two dates in late June and probably another in early July.

Along with my traditional peony tour, there will be a self-guided tour with information about some of the plants I grow, particularly some of the new cultivars of haskap, Canadian bush cherries, and more. 

I'll be happy to answer any questions guests may have about my growing experiences with the featured plants as well as others at my site.

Along with viewing and learning about my little farm, I also will be offering potted plants and berries (and perhaps asparagus) for sale.

To get to the site, drive 3 miles south of Townsend on Highway 287.  Turn left onto Shelley Road after Mile Marker 80.  Follow Shelley Road @2.5 miles to the "T."  Turn left onto Flynn Lane and you will see balloons at the right turnoff into a private lane.

Stay tuned in late spring for more details!
