Points of interest:

Our nursery has over 45 species of native plants, all perennials, for your enjoyment. This gives you an opportunity to see what your plant will look like at maturity. We would be glad to give you a guided tour and tell you some facts about each plant, or feel free to take a “self guided” tour anytime. We have transportation available for anyone who would like to ride.

A new addition this year is our greenhouse. Chris has many varieties of plants and grasses available in 4” pots and larger. We also have enlarged the number of shade plants we carry. These are in the “shade cloth” south of the greenhouse.

We have expanded our gift shop, in the green house, not to be confused with the greenhouse!! We have many items made by local artists, seed packets and bulk, gifts for many occasions, books and local honey. Check it out-it’s air conditioned.

Other sites to see include a prairie remnant, native wetland, 60 acres of native grasses, (big blue, Indian, Canada wild rye, and others). We also have a 2A short grass prairie and a 2A tall grass prairie and several diverse plantings to show a variety of native grasses and forbs. There are mowed paths around these for your walking or driving pleasure.

We erected a large, tall nest last fall with hopes of attracting an eagle or an osprey. One week this spring we had 15 eagles in our pasture-what a glorious sight! We also have a large population of birds, some common and others uncommon. We have Bobolinks, yellow headed and red winged blackbirds, Kingbirds, just to name a few. This year we also have several families of Upland Sandpiper running around in the grass.

We have tours available for large and small groups. We have a tour cart pulled by a tractor and we have a golf cart and Ranger ATV for 1 or 2 person tours. We would love to show you what we have.

We are open Friday and Saturday afternoons from 1-5 or anytime by appointment.

Don’t forget your camera.

Fire is a natural element of the Prairie. We burn the prairie to help promote seed production and deter non-native invasive plants.
