Grateful Plains

“Earth laughs in flowers.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our online farmstand is live!! Until further notice, our retail location and flowerstand / farmers market remain closed as we respect an International call for social distancing. Please use this time to keep our farm alive by gifting a session for our upcoming 2020 Programs. Until further notice, our Mother's Day plant sale pickup is on hold. No further orders can be placed until we assess our ability to fulfill orders based on plant material, supply & demand cycles and our ability to do it all ourselves! Orders placed in February will be honored.

The Grateful in Plains

Gratitude is a vibration. It is a frequency that resonates each time a person interrupts challenges by looking at the bright side and truly embracing all that is possible, even in seasons of drought and pestilence. When plants grow on land that is loved and cherished, something magical happens. Abundance. Beauty. Rare seeds, heritage breeds.

Growing forever together

One day not too long ago, a 3rd generation family farmer born and raised in the Illinois River Valley met an amazing woman who shared his work ethic, passion for working the ground and enthusiasm for living life to its fullest. He married her as soon as she believed she deserved to live happily ever after. And they do. . .

For the 2020 growing season, our farm is in full revival mode with limited time dedicated to a retail storefront. However, our retail space in the Village of Grand Ridge will be open for fresh cut flower market days, Mother's Day season opener and during Grand Ridge Fest in August
