Guided by Nature

Passionate about plants, we are a small family farm dedicated to helping everyone find the beauty in nature; be it through gardening, cut flowers or the healing herbs. We offer a wide selection of herbs, annuals, perennials, shrubs, olde-fashioned roses and trees. We strive to offer olde-fashioned favorites as well as the new top of the line breeding for your gardening needs. We offer classes covering all plant related topics, including how to garden in harmony with nature. Our drying barn displays our beautifully hand-crafted decorations made from our gardens, as well as cut flowers, healing tinctures and many salves from our apothecary. We have seventeen theme gardens so that you can familiarize yourself with many different plants.

Our farm is preserved from development in the Maryland Environmental Trust and Severn River Land Trust. We have labored to introduce many native medicinal and ornamental plants to this land and we consider ourselves a botanical preserve. To further this endeavor; we have joined United Plant Savers, an organization devoted to medicinal plant preservation.

Our farm uses self-sustaining organic methods to lessen our footprint on the earth and to keep our farm healthy for all time to come.
