What does Bashaw Valley offer?
Bashaw Valley Farm & Greenhouse is a family owned & operated retail business now in its 31st year of operation. We specialize in producing a wide selection of northern-hardy annual flower & bedding plants, perennials, shrubs and trees. Homegrown Grass-fed Angus beef, Pastured Pork and Organic Blueberries are raised here in an earth friendly way.
Our plants are home grown in our 10,000 square foot of greenhouses. Cold frames are used to harden off certain plants preparing them for the real world; your garden. Our on-farm retail store offers individual cuts of our mouth-watering 100% grass-fed Angus Beef and Pastured Pork. You will find our organic frozen Blueberries waiting for you in one of the freezers. During greenhouse season a wide variety of gift ware and an outstanding selection of planting containers and baskets are available. For that avid gardener we carry a complete line of bulk & retail garden seeds, potato and onion sets, sweet potato plants, raspberry, strawberry & blueberry plants, asparagus roots, fertilizers, mulch and so much more. We strive (with the help of some great employees) to put you the customer first and to provide a relaxing yet rewarding experience while visiting our greenhouse located on our picturesque family farm.
Whether it is shopping for plants, looking for that perfect gift, picking some mouth watering blueberries or just enjoying the scenery, we welcome each and every one of you to "Experience"

Where it all began...
The roots of Bashaw Valley are planted deeply on our family farm. We started farming by milking 20 cows in 1981. After several years of dairying we realized that to survive as a family business we needed to explore other business ventures. Linda, having a Bachelor of Science Degree in Horticulture from UW River Falls,motivated us to explore putting a retail garden center on the farm. In 1988 we purchased a used hydroponic tomato production greenhouse from the Hayward area and moved it home. After a couple of years, of highly educational growing and retailing under our belt, we decided to add blueberries. Never taking the easy road, in 1990 we planted one acre of organically grown half-high Northblue Blueberries. Since then three more greenhouses and a retail shop have developed. After selling the dairy herd in 1995 while transitioning into a beef cow-calf operation we added another business venture. The first of eight storage buildings were built. In 2009 1/10th acre of Asparagus was added to our certified organic production. In 2009 we also began to direct market our 100% Grass-fed Angus beef through our retail store. In 2011 we took our creativity to a new level by designing our very own hand-crafted rusty metal art. Pastured Pork was added to the mix in 2012 to compliment our Grass-fed Angus Beef. After 31 years we still get excited when that first green sprout peeks through the soil after a long hard winter.
