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
