Our selection

With the growing popularity of wellness and organic foods, we're expanding our Edibles Section yearly. You can find everything from veggie starts & seeds to perennial fruits & berries, as well as herbs for seasoning & healthcare.

We carry local, organic, and non-GMO products from growers that we know and trust. Our varietal selections are ideal for this region so you'll have the best chance for success!

For peak Edibles selection visit us in Spring or Fall.
