Unfortunately, due to weather and a series of other factors we have had a second year of losses that left us with significantly fewer bare root trees to sell.
With Adam and Jenifer both taking on other jobs to make ends meet in their respective lives, we anticipate being able to offer the few trees we have in December ’23/January ’24.
Please stay tuned for updates.

With these losses, we are shifting our focus to care for and maintain the historic varieties in our Mother Orchard as well as offer educational activities rather than bareroot propagation and sales.

We have passionately searched for and re-discovered the living, historic plants still scattered across Northern California from the Gold Rush era. We have personally found these trees and have taken cuttings directly from the ancient, 125+ year old grandmother trees that are still alive on abandoned homesteads, ranches and mining claims.


If you feel our work is important, please consider a donation to help take care of our Mother Orchard and the historic fruit and nut trees we have discovered

Birchville Beauty

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.
