Twisted Tree Farm is a 20 acre homestead and nursery tucked back in the hills of Spencer, NY. We are dedicated to growing healthy trees, food, and family.

Our nursery specializes in unusual fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, and useful perennials. We primarily sell bare root stock, but also have some potted plants that are available locally. We sell seed, cuttings, roots, as well as plants ready to go. Please inquire if you are interested in wholesale prices. If given a full season's notice, we can grow plants and trees in larger quantities at a significant discount.

All of our stock is raised naturally without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. This is surprisingly rare in the nursery business, so we are proud to raise our well-rooted young trees in a living soil using compost, wood chips, and low tech common sense.

We believe that tree crops benefit the world in very powerful ways. We are establishing small scale commercial plantings of chestnut, hazelnut, and other low maintenance tree crops .  Let us know if you, too, are interested in expanding tree crop genetics, we love to trade seed and plant material.
