Nursery Catalog

New Plant Inventory Available  November 4th 2019 .          600 plants of 80 Varieties

(As long as PG&E doesn’t Shut our Power off Again!)                                                             Sorry For the Delay! We have been without power for an entire Week!

Due to the Wet Late Spring and Shorter Growing Season there are only about 600 Plants This Year and anticipate selling out. We are a small  non profit nursery geared toward the home gardener and sometimes we may only have 2 or 3 of a variety. Sign up on our Email List to be the first to know exactly when we first publish.  When we find permanent Farm Land we will be able to provide more of these amazing re-introductions!


Thank you Everyone for supporting this project!  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 are grateful that we can carry on the legacy of our ancestors who have spend millennia working with plants by 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 Gold Rush Country.

We are a very small nursery and there are a very limited supply of some varieties. We are sorry for the inconvenience.  When we find long term farm land we’ll be able to do more.


Please Don’t be disappointed — 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.
