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.

Please Don’t be disappointed — the early bird gets the worm!

Felix Gillet is recognized as the originator of the walnut industry on the West Coast. Walnuts originated in Persia, brought to France where many varieties were developed over multiple centuries. Gillet introduced more than 30 varieties of walnuts from France, many of which formed the foundation for the entire walnut industry that has made California famous! Gillet correctly recognized that his varieties were superior to any others being grown in California during the 1800s.

Our heirloom walnut trees are the only species we contract out to another nursery, which has the equipment to dig deep for these tap-rooted trees. Your payment for these walnut trees is a “Reservation” for the tree we expect to receive from the nursery. If we do not receive the trees, we will refund your payment promptly.
