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

This is a seedless Afghani variety Gillet introduced to the US in 1876. He likely sold some vines to Mr. Thompson, a farmer near the Sutter Buttes in Sutter County, who made the variety famous, and named it after himself. The most widely grown seedless table grape in the US, is also the premier raisin and often used in making juice, juice concentrate, wine and vinegar. Truly a workhorse, and a wonderful grape. If you have never eaten a fully vine ripened Thompson Seedless you have no idea how much better they are than the store bought kind that have been pumped up with hormones to increase their size and picked immature green, instead of the smaller, true golden-yellow, super sweet taste of a fresh, ripe Kish Mish. Outstanding!

Our plants are propagated from the daughters of Mr. Thompson’s original vineyard, a 115 year old vineyard on the edge of the Sutter Buttes in Sutter County, CA at 100' elevation. We offer 1-2 years old potted cuttings.

Please note: We do not ship grapes. Available for pick up only in North San Juan.
