The host plant for the Monarch caterpillar is milkweed. This is the only plant the caterpillar will eat. The monarch caterpillar must have milkweed to survive!
The farm is home to a host & nectar plant nursery producing plants that are beneficial to all pollinators. The farm has plants available for purchase such as, milkweed, butterfly bushes, & annual nectaring flowers just to name a few. Our farm is one of the largest producers of milkweed in the area, unlike other nurseries our plants are grown chemical free, ensuring no harm to pollinators. Host & nectar plants are currently available in small numbers, with additional stock becoming available in May. Caterpillar Castle Lifecycle kits are anticipated to be available for purchase by May. Availability will be updated on our website & social media.
Our Retail Plant Nursery is open to the public each Saturday 9 a.m.-12 p.m. during our season (availability permitting)
**The Farm will be CLOSED August-18th through August-31st to perform yearly maintenance. During this time we will NOT be open for visitors or providing butterflies for release. We will reopen Saturday September-1st for our 10 AM Family Show, and conclude our 2018 season on October-13th.**
Typically, at any given time during our season (May through early October) we will have 1 or more varieties of milkweed for sale. Prices range from $8.95-$15.95 depending on size.
