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 much more.

We would like to thank you the customer for putting your trust in us and look forward to serving you in the near future. For those who have not had the pleasure of experiencing our greenhouse and farm setting we invite you and your family to make a day of it. 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" Bashaw Valley Farm &  Greenhouse.(Bring the Camera!)

Where it all began...

The roots of Bashaw Valley are planted deeply on our family farm. We started out dairy farming back in 1981. After several years of dairying we soon realized that if we were going to survive as a family business we had better branch out into other business ventures. Linda, already having a Bachelor of Science Degree in Horticulture from UW River Falls,motivated us to try our luck at a retail garden center. We started out by purchasing a used greenhouse in 1988 near Hayward WI which was used for hydroponic tomato production. After a couple of years, of highly educational growing and retailing under our belt, we decided to add another business. 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 sprouted. After selling the dairy herd in 1995 while transitioning into a beef cow-calf operation we decided on yet another business venture. The first of eight storage buildings were built to accommodate your every storage need.  In 2009 1/10th acre of Asparagus was added to our certified organic fruit production. In 2009 we also began to direct market our all natural 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. After 30 years we still get excited  when that first green sprout peeks through the soil after a long hard winter. Pastured Pork was added to the mix in 2012 to compliment our Grass-fed Angus Beef.

Bashaw Valley Farm & Greenhouse believes in producing a quality product at a fair price. Customer service is number one. We strive to treat everyone equal and offer honest yet practical advice. The close relationship with our environment has led us to going green.  Growing up with a farming background helped us realize  how fragile our environment is.  We strive  to use earth friendly and environmentally responsible practices in our greenhouse, farm & fruit growing operations. This is accomplished by using beneficials for insect control rather than insecticides and using natural fungicides in our soil mix as needed. In our fruit production we use all organic practices including; organic fertilizer, no insecticides or herbicides and lots of old fashioned hard work.  You have no idea how humbling yet rewarding weeding an acre of blueberries by hand is until you have experienced this task yourself. Choosing these growing practices, although a lot of hard work, has led to offering you a healthier product as well as being environmentally responsible along the way.
