Although we don’t have some things people might think of when they think of a farm -- we do grow over 800 varieties of plants on our five acre grounds in our greenhouses. Plus, we have everything you need to create edible, eco-friendly and beautiful small spaces to large gardens.
We also offer some classic farm activities... don’t miss our chickens! You can purchase chicken treats and feed them at the coop, which is behind the yellow Café farmhouse. In fall, we offer a pumpkin patch complete with staff-made scarecrows. We also carry beautiful Christmas trees and seasonal decorations leading up to the holidays. Last, but not least, we have our own beehives! They are in a staff-only area for safety reasons.

It is called a Monkey Puzzle Tree. Latin name: Araucaria araucana. Native to the Andes mountains of South America. Evergreen conifer that grows 50' to 80' tall and 20' to 30' wide. Hardy to zone 7. Full sun.
Our tree was brought as a seedling by South American ship captains to the 1905 Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition.
It is the national tree of Chile. They were alive as far back as 200 million years ago, when they developed their spiney needles to protect from grazing animals. They have a lifespan of 1,000 years and grow on rocky slopes of volcanoes. Their fire-resistant bark can survive lava flows.
Male and female trees have different cone shapes, oblong for male and round for female. The female produces edible seeds, which take two years to mature.
