Plants for Spring 2020 Shipping

Welcome to the Food Forest Farm plant shop! Here you’ll find many of the plants we’ve been growing in the nursery since 2010. These plants will come to you healthy and ready for their new home.

All of our plants are multi-functional, that is, some perennial vegetables can be eaten by a human, or livestock (leaf hay), or be grown as mulch for biomass, and more! You can look at “All” of the plants, or filter with the navigation bar.

Perennial Vegetables: edible roots, leaves, shoots, buds, seeds that come from perennial herbs, shrubs, and trees

Fruit: edible sweet goodness

Leaf Hay: plants to grow and feed to livestock like cattle, sheep, goats and rabbits

Biomass: herbs, grasses, shrubs and trees that grow fast and can be cut and used as mulch, grow soil, fuel stoves and compost piles

Princess Tree


Depending on where you live, in warmer climates the wood is very valuable, and great flowers for honey bee forage. Where we live the tree is a die-back perennial, and never flowers or produces timber. We use the tree as a carbon sequestering powerhouse (12 feet tall first season from small rooted transplant). Also we are experimenting with planting this tree to provide 50 percent shade to livestock pasture for tender summer grasses, lower animal stress, and fall protein rich leaf drop fodder. With limited quantities, your order will include one or two root cuttings.
