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.

Product Details

These are the sweet, tart Cranberries you might enjoy at the Holidays, but our selection is sweeter than those found in stores. Ripe fruit keep in refrigeration for up to 9 months! The plants are pest and disease free, long lived, and slowly spread through self rooting. They are native to boggy areas and require a near constant source of moisture which can be provided by sprinkler or micro sprinkler. They ripen in November at 3000' in the Sierra. Most likely Vacciinum Macrocarpon, they are a small, evergreen shrub that creeps along the ground in thin vines then curves up, no higher than a foot, to produce beautiful, red fruit. Gathered from cranberry bogs planted sometime in the late 1800s that were left to Nature and are now the only wild, cranberry bogs West of the Mississippi! 4" pots or 1 gallon

Please Note: We do not ship potted plants individually. It is too expensive, but we will ship them when ordered with other barefoot trees. By themselves, they are only available for pick up in N. San Juan. 4"Pot

North Columbia, where this bog was discovered, is the site of the largest hydraulic, gold mining operation in history. Thousands flocked to this area for the glitter of the gold, bringing their plants from their home or homeland with them. We are fortunate that a migrating miner brought his favorite cranberry to the San Juan Ridge.
