Our retail hours for the Spring Season are Saturdays 9am till 12 noon

Our new stock list is now available here.

We only accept cash, cheques and e-transfer.  

To place an order for pick up, please send requests via e-mail to:  We will gladly verify availability of your request.  We can assist in delivery and planting of stock as well as arranging a convenient time should you wish to pick up your trees and do the planting yourself.


For delivery orders, please ensure we have your proper municipal address or street number. If we are to install your trees, please provide a labeled flag in the ground where you want the tree to be planted. Make sure you have called for a utility locate well ahead of anticipated planting time. Ontario One Call is a free service and can be reached at 1-800 400-2255

Thank you for your continued confidence in our trees. We maintain our commitment to supply the best stock available along with accurate horticultural information gleaned from more than 45 years of working  in the industry.


Sincerely, John Drummond


We are a “family farm” producing quality trees and pure bred Devon cattle on our 150 acres. I represent the third generation of Drummonds to farm this piece of land. This is our 40th full season as a working nursery farm, and for more than one hundred years, the Drummonds have been caring for this little piece of land.  We are growing a diverse selection of top quality trees using natural methods. Our passion for roses continues. We offer a small selection of our favourite hybrid roses and we are increasing our production of hardy native seed grown roses. 

We offer low impact installation of a full range of tree sizes from young stock to wire basket specimens for:

Urban Landscape Restoration

Farmstead Beautification

Roadside and Lane-way Planting

Farm Windbreaks

Wildlife Habitat

Woodlot Regeneration

Energy Efficient Landscapes


 I am no longer offering maintenance services or winter protection services.  As our herd of  Devons grow, those animals demand a greater proportion of my time, and as a life-long farmer, their value to soil conservation and rehabilitation becomes a critical part of my focus.  


The combined challenges of climate change, urban sprawl,  industrialized farming techniques, and  various pests and diseases, make the planting of trees more important than ever. We sincerely hope that we can be part  of a sustained response to such challenges.



Our availability for the 2023 season is listed on the 2023 stock list with prices and descriptions. Once its sold, it’s sold for the year. If what you are looking for is not on the stock list, we don’t have it for this year’s planting but we may be able to special order it for next year. Trees are still in very short supply across North America currently, thus longer lead times for such orders are required.



For items not on our stock list, we encourage you to place an advance order with us now for arrival next Spring. If there are trees that you are specifically looking for please email such requests to before Oct 30 2023 so that if possible, your request might be filled in the Spring of 2024.


For large projects including farm windbreaks planning ahead is essential. Orders placed this year may be filled the following Spring. 


Orders and pricing would be confirmed in the late Fall. Larger projects and some special orders require deposit in order to confirm your order.


If stock is not available and your project must go ahead this year you may consider contacting any of the following retail nurseries. While we have no affiliation with these nurseries, they are assumed to be reputable, covering a substantial geographic range in Southern Ontario: Connon’s in Waterdown, Baseline in London, Grobe in Kitchener or Canadale in St. Thomas



Our plants are guaranteed to be true to name and are in good viable condition when sold. We have no ability to control weather, drought, lack of watering, improper planting, rodent damage, herbicide damage, mechanical/construction damage, or improper “care” techniques etc. Thus we cannot guarantee the viability of stock after purchase. Take good care of your trees. You are responsible for them now, just as we have taken full responsibility for their care during their life at our nursery.
