The Holly Orchard was planted in the 1930's and 40's and currently holds 260 trees on 6 acres. It is one of the largest, oldest holly groves in Washington. Most of the trees are the Old English Green variety, with variegated varieties, planted in the 1960's, adding sought-after accents to wreaths and bouquets. The prolific berries turn from green to orange as the fall begins, turning their traditional beautiful red as night temperatures drop into the 40's. Holly is typically prone to insect damage and we have spent years learning which products will help our trees, while providing a safe environment for our grandchildren to play under the trees on summer days and our employees to harvest without exposure to harsh chemicals. We are very happy to offer environmentally friendly products.
The greenhouse, which houses our vegetable starts in the spring and summer, morphs into a wreath-making shelter for the holidays. Isaiah, 30, is our master wreath maker, turning the foliage into consistent symmetry.
