Our nursery is very service oriented. While we grow for our Midwestern
market, we are also happy to contract grow both the seedling and grapevine
varieties/quantities for your specific plantings. We pride ourselves on
our customer service and look forward to working closely with our
customers at both order and delivery time to best serve their individual
The following are just a few of the services we provide that we feel set us apart from other seedling providers in our industry:
All stock is table graded (not “row
run”) to your program specifications, or we can provide you with your
preferred size stock.
Stock is bundled in labeled units of 25. When held in our walk-in
coolers, it is stored bareroot (as opposed to pre-packaged) allowing us
to monitor and maintain uniform humidity and temperature, which is vital
to the health of live plant material.
All orders are kept bareroot in our coolers until bagged or boxed just
prior to shipment or pickup.
All bareroot stock is dipped in a “planting gel” prior to packaging.
This eliminates drying during shipping and reduces transplanting shock in the field.
Harvest begins after the first of the year and into the early spring to
provide the freshest, totally dormant seedlings possible.
All confirmed orders may be held in our coolers at no additional charge
as long as necessary to meet your schedule, which may be subject to
change due to inclement planting conditions.
All shipments are confirmed one week prior to the requested shipping
date so there are no “surprise” deliveries. If you need to adjust your
delivery date, notify us in advance of your date and we will make every
effort to accommodate you.
Customers picking up orders at the nursery can request either 4 mil
plastic bags ready to go directly to the field or heavy two-ply,
We ship in poly-lined, two-ply boxes that measure 54 in. x 16 in. x 16
in. and weigh no more than 140 lbs., which can be handled by two men and
not require a forklift at the site. All inventory is clearly listed by
variety and count on the end of each box.
Orders will be shipped in full or partial shipments can be arranged. We
can also ship to multiple job sites in order to best meet your planting
