Fig Tree Sale at

Winter 2019 -- Fig Tree Sale

Some small fig trees are now available for immediate shipping to the central and eastern US.  Sorry, we cannot ship this particular crop of trees internationally or to the West Coast.  (see explanation at link) 

These trees were rooted last winter and have old, established roots.  They're currently dormant in 16oz containers and will range from about 6-18 inches in height once they're packaged.  Shipping charge is $20 per box, and each box can hold up to 6 trees.

2-for-1 fig cuttings sale at

Buy 1 Get 1 Free -- Starting Monday Dec. 10th

Starting this Monday December 10th, will be launching a major fig cuttings sale: buy 1 fig cutting, get a 2nd fig cutting of the same variety for free.

For example, if you order 1 Black Madeira cutting, you'll receive an additional Black Madeira cutting for free (so 2 for the price of 1); if you order 2 Black Madeira cuttings, you'll receive 2 additional Black Madeira cuttings (4 for the price of 2); etc.

Freebies will be duplicates of what is ordered--no special requests (i.e. you can't buy a cutting of 1 variety and use that to request a freebie of a different variety).  You'll simply receive double of whatever you order.

Blue Tilapia Pond Stocking - delivering large broodstock

Here's a short video showing some of our large adult Blue Tilapia broodstock. We're sold out of big ones like these for the rest of the 2016 season; the remaining fish are in the 6-8" range.

Blue Tilapia Pond Stocking 2016 - update

Blue Tilapia pond stocking for the 2016 season will begin the week of April 25th.  We will contact each individual customer during the 3rd week of April to arrange specific delivery dates and times. 

We will have 2 crops of stockers this year, one in late April and one in early June.   The late April crop is now sold out, but you can still place an order to reserve fish from the early June crop.  Blue Tilapia can make up ground in a hurry and clear up a pond covered in algae in just a few weeks, so June isn't too late; that would still give you 4 good months of clear water.

If you are interested in advance ordering for 2017, you can do so now for just $5 per pound.  When you advance order, we both win:  you pay a much lower price and assure yourself of being at the front of the line for the biggest stockers, and we get capital to help expand our farming operation for next season.  If you'd like to place an advance order, please contact us.

Fish House update

Below are a few pics from the construction of our pit-style Fish House. This time, instead of doing all of the digging by hand with a shovel and wheelbarrow as I had done with my pond and other tunnels, I rented a Bobcat. After the 1st day, I thought, "Eh, that's enough help, I'll just do the rest by hand"--which might have been an okay idea if I hadn't then decided to keep digging and make it twice as big as I had intended when I started.

Here's what the trench looked like last Fall 2015 after using the Bobcat on the first day:

Then after some hand-digging:

And after more hand-digging...
Special thanks to my nephew and Dad :)

Here it is newly stocked with bananas in spring 2015:

And here's what it looks like now:
