. We will be
ready to sell our herbs and perennials. Spring is finally
here - time of growth. During this season you will find
wonderful plants here at the Wooden Shoe plus a shop filled
with interesting accent pieces for your garden, deck or
patio. We open at 10 a.m. Welcome to a new year here at
May 11th and 12th - 10 a.m. -
5 p.m. Spring Open House. We are getting ready
for Mother’s Day here at the farm. Come and buy
something for your mom and bring a friend.
The Spring Open
House is just in time for Mother’s Day. Last year
we saw a lot of new customers and we are going to do it
again this year - our ninth annual spring open house.
Come and enjoy. A wreath, swag or arrangement of dried
and preserved flowers will be a lasting gift. These arrangements
last and last without any care. Or a beautiful plant,
like a rosemary or a tree peony. These gifts are all expressions
of love for that special person in your life. This year
we have added some new products to our bath and body section.
We have a wide selection of gel candles, creams, linen
sprays and bath salts.

purple and one pink. Some ornamental herbs are also used
to give some color to the wreath. Last year we again accepted
special order requests. Call and order your special advent
wreath for your home or church. The price is $28.
