Visit Barthel Fruit Farm



Tired of planting annuals every year?  Tired of paying for them?  Discover the fun of perennials: plants that come up year after year and provide a great variety of blossom colors and leaf textures that change with the seasons.  We have a wide selection of perennials for every location: sun to shade, tall to short, dry to wet soils.


We grow our own plants and take great care to keep them healthy.  We do not use chemical pesticides: not herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides.  Below is a list of most of the perennials we grow.  Not all varieties are available at all times, though we have a very wide selection from April 30th  through September.  Our standard pot size is a "quart" (4.5 inch pot), but we also grow some "gallons" and larger; ground covers may be in 3.5 inch pots.


Plant sales start here at the farm April 30th and continue daily through the middle of July.  After that time, our hours at the farm are slightly restricted, but plants are also available at Farmers Markets.  Perennials are available again daily in September during regular Apple Barn Hours.  Please call the farm for current hours.  We are known for our healthy plants, good gardening advice, and competitive prices.  So come on out early and often to stock up on our premium perennial plants.

We are occasionally able to do site visits to help you deal with difficult garden situations.  We also have an expert private gardener on staff who does excellent garden installation, maintenance, and clean up.  Please inquire.


We do not sell flats of bedding plants (petunias, geraniums, ageratums etc).  However, we do have a great selection of annuals which are fantastic for containers.  We also grow a wide range of Herbs, both annual and perennial, and Tomatoes, Peppers, and other Vegetables.


EXPANDED SELECTION: CONTAINER GARDENS AND HANGING BASKETS, featuring a delicious mixture of annuals, perennials, herbs, and grasses.
