Seedlings 2023


Purchase Online

Online ordering is open for the season! 

I'm currently updating a few areas of the list--but you may order now and I'll notify you if anything you've selected requires attention.

Click the + icon next to a seedling to add that 4-pack to your cart.

All seedlings come in 4-packs at $7/4-pack.  We have many mixed 4-packs designed for home gardeners who want to maximize variety in a small garden.

All varieties are subject to availability at time of order. You will receive an emailed receipt of your purchase.

Stay tuned for details--dates and times of pre-order pick ups--generally beginning in mid-May.

*Folks awaiting orders--I'll be in touch super soon! :) 


Picking up pre-orders at the farm


Annual Sale at the farm--a little different this year...

Selected varieties are available for purchase at the North Plain Farm store on Rt. 41 near the Great Barrington/Housatonic border from dawn til dusk, self-serve (venmo, paypal, cash and checks accepted).

Selected varieties of our plants are also available at The Berkshire Coop


Collections/Variety Packs/Mixy Mixes

Immediately below are some of our most popular mixed variety 4-packs for quick ordering. These mixed packs give home gardeners maximum diversity with varieties in a small space--ie you don't have to buy four different 6-packs in order to try four different kinds of tomatoes. 

These mixed packs are designed to represent a diversity of color, taste, and when possible, maturity time, so that you'll always have something beautiful to look at and something to look forward to as the season unfolds.
