Twisted Tree Farm is a 20 acre homestead and nursery tucked back in the hills of Spencer, NY. They are dedicated to growing healthy trees, food, and family. Their nursery specializes in low maintenance fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, and useful perennials. They primarily sell bare root stock, but also hav potted plants that are available locally. They sell seed, cuttings, roots, as well as trees and plants. All of their plants are raised naturally without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. This is surprisingly rare in the nursery business, so they are proud to raise well-rooted young trees in a living soil using compost, wood chips, and low tech common sense.
