Spring 2015 Price Schedule
 To place an order for less than 100 trees
please go to our new shop site  by clicking on the picture of Joanna
shopping somewhere in Africa

We only grow about 35,000 trees a year and we could easily sell them all to just a few orchards, but that is not what we are about. The first 25,000 we sell at our 100+ tree rate to orchards of various sizes. The remaining 10,000 trees we sell in small lots to hobbiest, back yard growers and the occasional large orchardist that simply doesn't want to be put off until 2017 or even 2018. So for orders over 100 trees, please email us at We might still be able to give you the 100 + rate on some varieties (no chance on cider I'm afraid). If you really must have a few Binet Rouge or Puget Spice to put into your test block then certainly don't be shy to order them now on our retail shopping site. Yes, it's expensive, but at least you will have a few trees to trial while you are waiting for your custom order to come thru. Perhaps we are wearing too many hats, but we are trying to keep as many people supplied with fruit trees as we can and make a living. Apple Trees for everybody! (but maybe not as many as you would like :-)


 What does Feathered, 11/16, 9/16, 7/16 and 5/16 mean?  This roughly refers to the caliper and therefore size of a tree.  Grading is a very subjective process.  A #1 Chenango Strawberry is well branched and BIG.  A #1 Frostbite is a small whip.   We charge the same for both.  Perhaps it is best to think in terms of #1 grade, #2 grade etc.  Not all varieties are created equal.  We reserve the largest caliper tree available when you order unless otherwise directed.

  • FAQ's
  • Yes, in arriving at a quantity discount, all trees in the total order are counted
  • On orders for 2016, we request a 50% deposit on orders of $500.00 or more;  on smaller orders, we request payment in full at time of order confirmation.
  • for orders of 50 or more trees, we charge a "broken bundle" fee of $2.00 per variety (not per tree) for lots of less than five trees. Our bundle size, in other words, is five, but is waived for orders of less than 50 trees
  • (For example:  if you order one each of 50 different varieties there will be a $100 total surcharge.  If you order two each of 25 different varieties, $50 total. If you order 5 each of ten varieties there will be no broken bundle surcharge.)


ROYALTIES are not reflected in above price schedule
