    Meadow Vista Flower and Berry Farm is closed for the winter season. This spring of 2023 we will be opening as the colorful iris bloom to welcome the seasom. At that time we will have 100's of veggie plants and perennials for sale. Additonally, we will be offering freshly prepared fruit jams from our harvest, local honey, blue bird houses and water color cards and paintings.

    One of the enjoyable tasks on a small farm is planning for spring. In addition to fertilizing, pruning, and weeding, there is joy of sorting seeds and getting serious about future plants to offer. We have been working on the perennials, but now it is time to get serious about tomato and veggie plants. Soon we will be moving hundreds of seedlings to four-inch pots and lovingly placing them in the green houses.

    That is where you come in. We want your opinion on which plants to offer in the spring. We know that Sun gold tomatoes are an all-time favorite, so we will have those seedlings in large numbers. Please tell us which varieties of tomatoes and vegetables you’d like to see. For example, last season we ran out of cucumbers fairly quickly. We have learned our lesson.

    To respond, just email us at ricko92@hotmail and let know what you are hoping to see. We will take these suggestions very seriously.

    In the meantime, stay dry and warm. Let’s look forward to those beautiful, Foothill spring days as get back to soil and prepare our gardens.

    This spring we will able to provide bouquets for pick-up and delivery in the Meadow Vista area. If interested, just call 530-269-9786 or our email: ricko92@hotmail.  The bouquets will be from our gardens and personally prepared by Jackie.  Some customers have also enrolled in a bouquet CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program that provides weekly bouquets.  Prices and details below.

    This past season we have been delighted to deliver those fresh bouquets to residents in nearby neighborhoods. We have had customers call us from as far away as New Zealand, NYC, Texas, Oregon, and Washington. If interested, give us a call, and we can set up a delivery. Customers usually pay through Venmo (@mvfarm), PayPal.me/mvfarm or sending us a check. The recepients are always happy to receive the bouquet, a card and often a jar of jam and honey


    This summer we began preparing new batches of jam from our strawberry, grape, blackberry and raspberry harvest. Additionally, Rick renewed his contact with the Nevada County bee keeper who provided our bulk, raw honey for bottling and sale.
