We will still have another winter bare root sale in October 2020….

Since we are a small nursery, we usually have a limited supply of fruit trees.  So, we urge you to sign up for our email list for early notification of when our plants will be available.  Call (530) 292-3619 or email us at and request to be added to the email list. 


Thank you Everyone for supporting this project!  While the nursery sales provide approximately 25% of our operating budget, we rely on donors and occasional grants. This year we are grateful to the Bill Graham Foundation for their support of our work. Hats off and gratitude to them.   While this was awesome, we are still far below our budgetary needs. None-the-less, we are dedicated and continue to volunteer our time to keep things going.  All of us together are finding, saving and propagating valuable food and ornamental plants that have survived a century with little to no care from humans.  We take it as a personal commitment to carry on the legacy of our ancestors who spent millennia breeding, saving and transporting the very best fruit, nut and ornamentals from around the world.  In the face of modern industrial agriculture we have lost 95% of our genetic diversity, and with your help all of us are saving the very best gems still growing throughout California’s Gold Rush Country.

 After purchase, you will be contacted and your plants will be available for Pickup in

North San Juan, CA or UPS Delivery

We apologize if we run out of something you want — the early bird gets the worm!

Our Apple trees are one year whips which measure at least 3/8 caliper across at graft union and are pruned to 4' tall. Many production orchards prune the apple tree 2'-3' tall which promotes branching from the nodes below the cut. The selected branches then become the frame for the tree. There are many styles of pruning but some of the most popular are 'modified leader' and 'open vase.'

Our heirloom apples are grafted to M111 rootstock. M111 is an excellent all-around rootstock for apples. Trees will be dwarfed to approximately 85 % of a standard full-size tree, approximately 12-16’ at maturity. M111 induces early and heavy bearing, tolerates wet soil, dry soil, and poor soil. M111 resists woolly apple aphids and collar rot.
