Who we are…
I am Teri and I am taking over part of my parent’s farm, Russell’s Farm Market. The part I am acquiring is all of the plants and garden related items, along with the Wild Rose location. I will still be doing most of the growing at our home farm in Plainfield (that’s where all the greenhouses are), and will have early spring plant sales there. But I will have the main business in Wild Rose with every variety of plant I grow being represented. Along with all of the related fun stuff.
I am a horticulturist and have worked in the industry my entire life. I like unusual plants and garden art. Old things and new, refurbished and re-purposed, and sometimes just created. Come see what I find…
What we do…
One of the most important things is to locally source as many of our products as possible. I’m not claiming everything is made out back, but a lot of it is from local growers and producers within 30 miles, or a Wisconsin product. Anything that we acquire from further reaches of the world is at least made in a sustainable way or is benefiting the local community it is created in.
- Annuals (I have been growing all of the annuals for the last 15 years and will have over 450 varieties, including many Proven Winners and hard to find unique plants)
- Perennials (taking over from Chris, my mom, I will continue the high quality she has grown since 1995 having over 350 varieties)
Succulents (I’ve been growing these with annuals, but expanding them significantly for 2019, both the tender and hardy types)
- Air plants (they are just so cool, and super easy to take care of!)
- Mini and Dwarf conifers (I grew these for a few years and unfortunately eliminated them when I quit growing woody ornamentals. They have a great place back in my gardens and have so much character)
- Bonsai???? Maybe I’ll play around with these…
Garden related products:
- welded metal art by Teri (that’s me, I weld things together, usually found items that don’t have much of a purpose anymore)
- functional garden items like trellises, obelisks, benches, plant stands, bird baths
- outdoor “lounge” pieces like colorful chairs and hammocks, floor coverings, wind chimes, teak wood furniture
- garden decor including unique statuary, metal, stone and wood
containers that are unique and have tons of character
- vintage items collected from all over Wisconsin for both indoors and out
- garden appropriate shirts and hats
- beautiful art pieces including canvas art, paintings on screens, windows, tables, and chairs done by my mother Chris (that’s the real reason she is retiring – so she can paint more!!!)
- fresh produce in season still grown on the family farm (Bill is not quite ready to quit farming yet!)
- sugar free freeze dried fruits
- fun snack mixes
- delectable chocolate covered peanuts (have been very popular for years now)
- Door County canned products
- locally produced honey, maple syrup, and jam
- A full line of Snappy Dog Salsa products
- any of the above listed items of course 😉
- locally made, hand crafted jewelry
- soaps, lotions, lip balm, soy candles, and all the good smelling stuff
Where we are…
Technically, we have 2 locations. My greenhouses are located in the same spot they have been for the past 20 years: at my parent’s place at Russell’s Farm Market in Plainfield, WI (see sidebar for address and Google map). Park right in back by the greenhouses to shop for plants! The front area will be open and have some art and garden items for sale. And there will certainly be delicious produce as the season progresses.
Our summer location is on Main Street in Wild Rose, WI (see sidebar again for that map). By early June, all of the plants will be moved over here and we will have a huge selection of hard goods and garden related items and art. And food. Yummy! Stop in and see how much fun we are having!
When we are there…
We are now closed for the 2020 season. Thank you to everyone who made it a great year and I’ll see you in spring!
