Plants and Seeds
Many of the varieties of plants that are ideal to North Texas are, amazingly, difficult to find in this area. If you submit a request, I can acquire the seeds or plants you want when ordering my own. I also grow a lot of specific varieties from seed (for example, Vidalia onions) to make available when it’s time to transplant.

This is still in development, so I welcome any suggestions or requests you may have. Holding live classes here at the farm seems logical—yet not feasible for many due to distance, so I’m considering virtual classes via Skype. Please share any thoughts on this.
