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

Product Details

An ancient and sacred Mediterranean Perennial Herb Tree mentioned in the Bible. The flowers are beautiful and the leaves and berries are an edible herb with a very intense aroma which could be considered similar to rosemary, sage or juniper but different. It is delicious sweet and spicy. It is often cooked with meat such as Rabbit or Deer. The berries are very mild and a traditional alcoholic drink, Mitro, is made from them in Sardinia and Corsica. The berry picture here has slightly immature berries, they get larger and darker in color.

This beautiful 100+ year old tree is found on an old ranch near a pomegranate, olive, pears and figs. It's orange knobby trunk grows up about 7' tall then showers down branches and flowers, creating a fun hideout inside about 8' wide. This tree can be pruned however you like but it tends to grow in a weeping willow effect with the branches. You can prune it low or even as a 15 foot tall tree with weeping branches. We've seen it also pruned as a hedge. We love this plant.

Please Note: We do not ship potted plants individually. It is too expensive, but we will ship them when ordered with other barefoot trees. By themselves, they are only available for pick up in N. San Juan.
