There are truly native plants, they are naturally occurring in our forests of Northern Ontario. Many are even grown and harvested right on site. They are unimproved varieties and may underperform (in term of berry production and flavor) compared to cultivated varieties.

Help us "Grow"
We have big aspirations to grow from a retail nursery to a full onsite nursery where we will be doing all our own planting, propagation and grafting. This will help up not only reduce our environmental impact but also be able to offer plants earlier in the season and plants that have been hardened off in our exact climate.
With all that being said we are also going to be needing lots of mulch, planting material and compost. So if anyone is interested in dropping off any wood chips, leaves, grass clippings, yard waste, manure or compost we would happily accept it.
We are also looking for any pots you may have. Especially the larger 5 gal+ pots the trees usually arrive in. We will also accept any smaller pots, planters or flats.
I would like to acknowledge the traditional keepers of the land on which our farm is located; Atikameksheng Anishnawbek and all other members of the Robinson-Huron treaty. I am deeply inspired by the practices and traditional ways of knowing of Indigenous people.
I am honored to try and continue their legacy of forming a reciprocal relationship with the land and mother earth as a whole. I will continue to strive to leave the land in better condition than when I acquired it so it can continue to give back for generations to come.
I hope that all our customers and contacts will adopt a spirit of reconciliation in all their gardening and landscaping practices and each do their part to heal the land and also heal relationships with all Indigenous peoples.
I would like to thank Manidoo Bineshiinh for her assistance in preparing this acknowledgment and happy to support her work at Manidoo Bineshii Dreams (MBD) a collective arts and food sovereignty space based in Atikameksheng Anishnawbek. I encourage everyone to learn more and help support this space.
