Annual Seedling Sale

Stearns Farm offers seedlings for sale to the public each May. Choose from dozens of varieties of flowers, herbs, and vegetables!

All seedlings are grown at the farm using organic potting soil from McEnroe Organic Farm and fertilized with Neptune’s Harvest Organic Fish and Seaweed Fertilizer. Our main seed sources are Johnny’s Selected Seeds, Geoseed, Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, Fedco Seeds, and High Mowing Organic Seeds. Our goal is to provide you with healthy seedlings that will thrive in your home gardens or in pots on your porch.

Our seedling catalog offers a preview of more than 100 plants we expect to have available during our sale. Please be aware that, as with farming in general, many factors affect plant growth, and we can’t guarantee everything on our list will be available. We recommend that you visit the list periodically in case there are any changes. Note also that although we plan for customer demand of popular varieties, we do not have unlimited quantities of any seedling type. If we sell out of a plant you’re seeking, we hope you’ll discover a new favorite.
