Garden Packages - What are they?
Our garden packages are designed for backyard gardeners, and are designed to save you time and frustration. Each year we start tens of thousands of plants at our USDA Certified Organic farm in our indoors grow buildings and greenhouses, and while most of those certified organic plants end up in our fields, many also end up in local backyard gardens! These garden packages are your chance to acquire what you want at a package discount, professionally grown and tended to. Bigger, healthier, certified organic plants, grown locally!
As an added value, we also include a FIELD DAY pass with each package, which is an incredible opportunity to take a tour of our operation, and learn about various methods of tending to the different plants; including organic fertilizers; pest management strategies; trellising techniques; simple, effective, cheap and easy irrigation systems; garden plot planning; crop rotation, and more! (Several field days will be scheduled on weekends this spring, you will be contacted with sign up information separately)

The value of the plants, if purchased separately, is $132 (or higher, depending on pepper selection!)
The value of the field day pass is $50 if purchased separately.
The cost of this package is $100. That is a savings of $82!
Delivery: You can pick up your package at our farm 1st week of May, 2020. Some plants should not be planted out until risk of frost is passed, so make sure you have a spot to keep them indoors for a week or so, if necessary, for any risk of frost to pass. Only plants are supplied (in 2" - 3" pots) - you will need to prepare your ground and obtain any other tools and materials separately.
Conditions: We reserve the right to make substitutions if necessary, depending on factors outside of our control.
Add-Ons: If you want a steady supply of lettuce through the season, every couple of weeks you should plant additional seedlings. If you live close to our farm and want to arrange for a continuous supply let us know, cost is minor ($10 per succession planting).
