Fruit and Nut Trees

We are happy to announce that fruit trees are here! Bare root upon arrival, each tree is potted in a biodegradable pot to add ease to planting. Trees are two years upon arrival and should bear a small crop this year. Our tree varieties are especially chosen for their low chilling hours, in order to provide customers with a premium selection that will all do well in our area.
