Due to two years of severe nursery losses, our board of directors has changed our focus. Rather than bareroot propagation and sales, we are shifting to education and the care and maintenance of our historic Mother Orchard.
Please consider becoming a member (below) and donating to help continue our work.

Thanks to Peaceful Valley Farm and Garden Supply (originally started by our founder Amigo Bob Cantisano), a collection of some of our favorite species and varieties will be available through them for the 2024/25 Bareroot Season. 

Stay Tuned…

A huge shout out to Sweetland Mercantile in North San Juan, CA for working with us. Thank you for supporting them with your purchases.

Product Details

A finalist in 2013 FGI cherry tasting, this bright red, heart shaped cherry has a deep, rich flavor with plenty of clear to light red juice. The mother tree is being cared for and is producing large crops - late spring frosts notwithstanding. Apparently self fruitful, with no pollenizer varieties nearby. Ripens in mid to late June.

The grandmother tree is growing on an 1800s homestead in Birchville, Nevada County at 1,765 feet. Birchville was a small mining camp in the 1800s whose gold ran out pretty quickly. In 1880, the population was 50. There aren’t many more people residing there today! The owners of this tree have been renovating it, applying biodynamic and organic care, and it is thriving with their attention. An oldie just waiting to thrive in the 21st century.
