Records of the wild plum date back to the 17th century, when it was used in Oregon by local American Indian tribes as a dried winter fruit. There are 26 sub-varieties of the fruit that differ in season, size, shape, and flavor. The location span of this native fruit is from Maine to Florida in the east, northward from Mexico along the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains in the west, and along the Great Lakes region. American Plums are not commercially sold, but are found at local farmers markets when they are in season. The fruit is commonly used in jellies, jams, spreads and sauces for wild game.

Our farm is in the rolling hills of Madison County, Iowa. As the name Burr Oak Farm suggests, we have many burr oak trees as well as others. Since trees grow well we are planting more - an orchard of apple, peach, plum, cherry, apricot, pear, and nectarine trees.
We have about a thousand fruit trees in various stages of growth and production. We seem to have an inclination to expose the public to many heritage apple varieties as well as some tasty new ones.
The Buffalo Farmer's Market is held each Saturday morning from 8-Noon, beginning in May and going through the end of October. The dowtown location gives the market an old market atmosphere in the heart of this beautiful town. At the market you will find a wonderful selection of locally grown fruits and vegetables, eggs, meats, breads, and crafts. All products are grown or made by the vendors at the market and are all grown within 25 miles of the market.
Brambleberry Farm is a small permaculture-based market farm and nursery with about an acre-and-a-half of garden beds with a maturing fruit-tree based "food-forest" cradling the northern arc. We use sheet mulch on our beds and do not till them--all tools used in the garden are simple hand-tools. Thus we have a great model that can be applied to smaller home gardens without use of gas-powered machinery.
