Crabtree Farms Goes Curbside With Spring Plant Sale

Thursday, April 9, 2020

Crabtree Farms has been a grower of sustainable plants for more than 20 years. This year its spring plant sale will look much different than it has in years past. With the public health situation re: COVID-19 impacting the community, Crabtree Farms is reformatting its plant sale to keep the community safe health-wise while buying plants.

Here's what customers may expect: 

400+ plant varieties each uploaded to the Crabtree Farms online platform so that plant-lovers can browse and purchase plants from the comfort and safety of their homes (as well as honey & Crabtree T-shirts). 

The go-live date of our online plant sale is Monday.

Pick up of plants will be a pre-scheduled “curb-side” format. Limited delivery slots available. 

Updates will happen via its website, Facebook, and Instagram pages as well as by newsletter. Sign up for the Crabtree Farms What’s Ripe e-newsletter for ongoing updates at crabtreefarms.org.

Melissa Astin is available to answer questions. Contact Melissa at 493-9155 ext. 10 / mastin@crabtreefarms.org.

 The plant sale guide is available as a PDF here: https://crabtreefarms.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/2020-Spring-Plant-Sale-Guide-4.6.20.pdf
