Official American Hemerocallis Display Garden

Directions

To visit our garden on Virginia's Eastern Shore on the Delmarva Peninsula, either travel north from Virginia Beach or south from Salisbury, Maryland on RT 13 to Exmore, VA, turn north on Rt. 178 (traffic light at the Exxon station). Go about 1 mile and turn left at the Phillips Trustworthy Hardware Store (still Rt. 178N) toward Craddockville. Go about four miles (road winds a bit), bear right at Craddockville United Methodist Church and go about 1 mile. Turn left onto Island Neck Road and go to the end.  We are the last home on the left - cream with blue-green shutters and lots of daylilies.  If you want to find us using GPS, enter 12324 Island Neck Rd., Painter, VA.  If you are coming to visit and know some of the plants that you wish to buy, send us your list ahead of time so that we can have them dug for you.  We appreciate your patience.  Plants may not be dug while you wait in July depends upon the weather.

We ship at least a double fan.  If you wish to have substitutions of equal or greater value, please include a list of suitable substitutes.  We include bonus plants worth approximately 20% of the order for orders under $100, 40% for those over $100!  Please list suggestions.  We offer a collection of 10 varieties (our choice) for $40.  When ordering a collection, please let us know if you prefer a particular range of colors.  All plants are freshly dug and individually labeled.  Our garden is state inspected and we continue to maintain a preventative spray schedule.  Shipping charges are $10 plus $0.60 per plant over three plants.  The minimum order is $20.  We ship by priority mail (service with UPS is not satisfactory from the Eastern Shore of Virginia).  We generally ship on Monday with plants arriving in two to three days. Virginia residents must add 5% sales tax.  Wholesale prices of selected varieties are available upon request. 

We have a policy in the garden of letting children (<16 years old) select the daylily of their choice from the field.  If we have sufficient quantity, we dig a double fan for them to take home for their garden.  We have found that this is a great way to get youth excited about gardening and while they are deciding on their very favorite, the parents have a chance to look around too.

Perennial Roots Farm   --   Onancock

Biodynamic Farm & Garden

The farm store is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and closed on Sundays. Call a half-hour before you arrive so that someone can meet you at the farm store. On Saturdays, the owners are at the Onancock farmers market in the center of town from 8 a.m. to noon. On Tuesdays, they’re at the Cape Charles farmers market from 4 to 7 p.m.

Heading north, turn right on Front Street (U.S. 13 Business) toward the town of Accomac, then right on Route 605, then left on Decormis Street, down the dirt road and park in front of the old white house on the left.

That’s the farm store, where you’ll find duck and chicken eggs, cuts of heirloom, pastured pork, bacon and sage sausage, heirloom lettuce mix and, starting in early July, assorted heirloom berries, produce and herbs, including varieties of heirloom tomatoes and cukes rarely grown in the region, and lamb in the fall. Or call ahead and order fresh rabbit. Owners Stewart Lundy and Natalie McGill practice a method of ultra-sustainable farming. It might not look pretty, but they farm with utmost respect for the Earth, with no chemicals, GMO feed or harmful anything.

Perennial Roots Farm is both a business and a home. We began as a homestead, concerned foremost with reducing waste and providing enough food for our own needs. Out of our surplus, we began to find outlets in local markets. A garden grew up into a farm.

Our goals and practices are a synthesis of biodynamic rhythms and principles of permanent agriculture. We’ve learned that the maximum amount of life combined with a maximum diversity of life is health. We use no synthetic chemicals because the one-sided attack of any part of an ecosystem makes that entire ecosystem unbalanced.

We are committed not merely to nominal “sustainable” practices, but to regenerative practices that increase fertility with every season. We use intensive multi-species rotational grazing which keeps our animals healthier and nurtures our soil. We use cover crops to enliven the soil, build carbon, and provide habitat for beneficial insects. We compost as much as we can.

In keeping with this impulse towards long-term fertility, we raise heritage animals on our farm specifically selected for their good foraging traits. Our goal is to feed as little grain as possible to all our animals and continue to develop a perennial grass-based diet. Even the weeds are all an integral part of this process of healing the Earth.

We grow exclusively non-GMO open pollinated heirloom plants. We grow varieties of tomatoes, lettuce, greens, fruit trees, berries, and more. We raise heritage breed pigs, sheep, geese, ducks, chickens, rabbits, and turkeys. Most of our vegetables and animals that we raise are listed on the Slow Food Ark of Taste for their unique history and superior flavor. American Mulefoot hogs, Beaver Dam peppers, Aunt Molly’s Ground Cherries and the American Silver Fox Rabbit are just a few of our Slow Food Ark of Taste products. Almost all of our animal breeds are listed on the Livestock Conservancy. We are an agri-artisan on the Virginia Eastern Shore Artisan Trail. We are a certified Bee Friendly Farm.
