Easter Alternatives

Why not give the kids something other than candy this Easter.  How about a blueberry bush, thornless blackberry, or even a fruit tree?  Besides offering your youngster an alternative to a basket full of high fructose corn syrup, you'll be opening up their world to healthy choices and connecting them with the earth.

Children love to play outside, dig in the dirt, and watch all manner of things in the natural world.  Grab a shovel after the egg hunt and plant something. Get them involved in watering the plant and watching it grow as they do.  

We carry a variety of blueberry bushes suited for the area as well as thornless blackberries, plum trees and a few apple trees.  If you want your child to see results soon, choose a blueberry or blackberry.  The plums and apples will produce in just a few short years.  You don't need a huge yard to grow some fruit.

Stop by the farm between now and Easter and pick out some Easter goodies at 20% off!
