Our online store is temporarily closed. We hope to be able to update the online inventory as soon as possible, but there have been a lot of unanticipated life events this season that have complicated our time for computer crunching.

Our plant stand will open 05/28/22 this year and we'll be working a few markets as well.

Wild Black Currant (Ribes americanum)
