Welcome to Horsfords
Horsford's restored two antique Lord & Burnham glass greenhouses in order to expand growing potential in a grand tradition. We connected these houses using the glass and cypress beams from the original greenhouses dating back to the late 1800s. Unlike the disposable plastic greenhouses of today, glass allows summer heat and winter cold to break pest cycles. We grow annual flowers, kitchen herbs, and vegetable plants with the help of beneficial insects and integrated pest management.
We are dedicated to growing timeless plants like crabapples and lilacs, as well as cherished native species like oak and maple on 40 acres of growing fields. Visit in spring for awaited blossoms, in summer for prolific flora, and in fall for spectacular foliage. If you see a tree or shrub in our fields that you have to have, one of our team members will be happy to tag it for you. Our field crew will dig it at the appropriate time.
Shrubs are versatile in privacy plantings, pollinator hedgerows, flowering borders, and as celebrated specimens. We grow a diverse variety of evergreen and deciduous species for all preferences and sites.
