I literally do not have words for how absolutely gorgeous and healthy these trees are. I ordered four of their "fruit salad" trees, which arrived bare-root today. The grafts are all beautiful, the root stock and the root system are HUGE, and even the grafted branches are far, far past the "twig" stage. (All that being said, these trees are not so large that they'll be at high risk of transplant shock--it's the perfect balance between vigor and transplantability). Customer service was also excellent; they only guarantee three varieties per tree, but I requested and received four on each. I also asked if it was possible to receive at least one apricot graft, and while they told me they couldn't make any promises, I received two. Also, every single graft, and every single rootstock, is clearly labeled with informational tags, which SEEMS like it should be industry standard but sadly very much is not, so I really appreciated that. I've ordered bare root trees from at least a dozen nurseries, and these were by far the best I've ever seen. So were the planting directions, which included very recent research into best practices, including one recommendation I'd never seen anywhere before. I have to admit that I balked a bit at paying $50 a tree, but after seeing what I received (and they're organic, too!), I frankly feel like I was undercharged. Can't recommend highly enough!

Just received quality good size fruit trees delivered across the country and look good! I ordered three multi bud fruit trees (Dave Wilson fruit trees) all grafted with multiple varieties of fruit. (pluets, plums, peaches, cherries) extremely happy with how they looked after shipping. (FedEx). Shipping cost seemed steep at first, but once I saw the size of these trees, it made sense. These are not the twigs I received from other companies. These are two year old trees, 2-4 trunks. The price is fair. I have two multi bud pear and apple espaliers that were twice as much. I have emailed the company daily with questions (it is 19 degrees in Massachusetts) on how to heed and care for dormant trees. The gardening staff have been very encouraging and helpful (thanks Janice and Suzanne!) I only wish I had a bigger yard to plant more. Their website has helpful videos too. Can not wait to plant these trees. I am beyond excited!

I have been buying trees and shrubs from many reputable companies over the years and been happy with my purchases. This year, for the first time, I bought some trees from Peaceful Valley Farm. I was nervous about it, because they needed to ship in January, and I live in MA, zone 5B, where the ground is often frozen until April. However, they said I could keep them dormant in a cool dark place, which I did: my garage.

A company representative contacted me and let me know that there are different policies for barefoot than for perishable plant material. A little confusing but I will be able to get credit for the plants when and if they fail to leaf out. I bought the plants at full price just before they went on sale, perhaps because they were reaching their time limit in cold storage.

I have ordered from Peaceful Valley several times for seeds, bare-root trees, and potted trees. They seem to be a fairly sizeable operation; unlike some other nurseries I have dealt with, they have an actual customer service team, phone number and email address, catalog, functioning website, etc... all of which is great, and it certainly makes it easier to do business with them.

I have ordered a few times from this company and have been pleased at the quality of products (irrigation parts), as well as the fast shipping. They have reasonable prices as well. Definitely recommend!

I ordered some irrigation supplies from them, a small amount to try, and then a larger amount after I decided I really liked the product. Both times one item was backordered so they gave me the option of waiting until all items were ready to ship. The wait wasn't long and the irrigation product is super easy to put together and looks like it will last forever. Much better than other products you need an engineering degree to figure out with small parts that pop out and get lost. I didn't order plants, but my experience was more than satisfactory both times.

I had a great experience with this company. I ordered several pounds of sudangrass and red cowpeas for green manure, four grapevines, and several seed packets. Everything shipped quickly and the vines arrived well packaged and in a healthy dormant state. The grapevines were a very friendly, low price, and compared to other vines I have purchase from other suppliers, much, much larger. Everything was reasonable, including their flat-rate shipping. I'm looking forward to doing more business with Peaceful Valley in the future!

After posting my comment I read some of the other posts and just had to make an update after reading some of the negatives as some of the comments don't even make any sense. When looking at the number of negatives take their complaints into account. 1st, one post states it takes 5 days to leave PV and you might as well just go to your local hardware. In my experience it takes most companies at least several days to ship and that has nothing to do with going to local hardware. That same post states they charge your card right away. When I order something online and give my card I expect it to be charged right away. Some companies take a few days, but to me that is a problem because then I have to keep checking back. These are not valid complaints. Another post states it takes forever to ship anything and lists all sorts of issues on shipping costs etc. This may have been there experience by some cosmic mishap but I have ordered many more items from PV than I listed and always new up front what the (reasonable) shipping costs are and have received great communication on shipping status. On items like the blueberry I ordered they were not shipped for months but I was made aware of this up front and this is typical practice to ship at proper time etc.

Great service and plants! My red current was broken - took me over a week to contact them. They immediately sent me a new one! All my plants are doing great. Love the plants and service.

I ordered 50 strawberry plants (25 Ozark Beauty and 25 Seascape). The plants arrived last week. They arrived a little later than originally estimated, but that wasn't a problem, and the company previously sent an email advising of the delay.

I am a novice gardener, and have learned a lot from the GrowOrganic.com website. I have placed 5 orders. I have planted only a "good bug" seed blend and a cover crop (hairy vetch & cereal rye), and they germinated quickly.

A couple months ago (first part of April) my wife and I decided we wanted to buy a couple of blackberry plants. After finding out that the ones they sell on TV are a scam, I happened upon Peaceful Valley. After reading reviews on davesgarden.com, I decided to take a risk and I bought two Blackberry Black Satin plants. Not only were the plants very affordable, they also shipped for a good rate and arrived a few days after I ordered them. My wife and I planted them immediately after receiving them and now (almost two months to the day after planting) the plants have not only grown a significant amount but they have also started to produce blackberries. They are still small and green at this point but I have confidence they will grow into the berries that I wanted. If they only grow until someone gives them a positive review I will make sure to make a note of it.

This is a fabulous company, the negative comments astound me. I've ordered from them for years and wouldn't dream of going elsewhere. So far this season I've ordered garlic and seed starting equipment. The garlic variety they have available is one of the best available and their prices are hands down the best I've seen. I ordered several varieties of hardneck, a couple softneck, shallots and elephant garlic. The cloves were beautiful (we ate what we didn't plant, yum) and they're already throwing up strong green shoots, even through the mulch. The seed starting equipment is for this coming new year, it arrived on time and as described. I've ordered lots of direct sow seeds and veggie starts from them in the past (this is my first time doing indoor seedlings) and their germination rates have been outstanding and the end product delicious, I even have a few generations of Peaceful Valley veggie seeds I've saved.

Wow I am surprised by all of the negitive comments for this company. But I am local and don't have to ship stuff to myself. All I can say in their defense is that are flocked by thousands of locals everyday....and we are not just taking about the kind that put in a few plants every year. We are talking about large farms and medium farms plus the usually gardener. So they may need to hire more people just for the Internet side.

I just received two orders from Peaceful Valley, one was simply a dozen packets of seeds and some legume inoculant, everything was there and shipped in a timely matter.

The same week I made this review, I received my shipment. Other than a few broken branches (would need to be pruned anyway) all was well. WELL, this week I received a hand written apology note explaining they reason why the mess up happen and how they were very sorry it did. I also got a little gift too which I must say was very unexpected. Although I will probably not order big like that again, I do intend of getting seeds from Peaceful Valley as I do like to give Organic businesses my business & they have some awesome deals on some good heirlooms. So thank you, Eric & Katie (for the note).

I recently ordered from Peaceful Valley via email, and my order was shipped out the same day I ordered. The packaging and the product both impressed me. I'll order from them again.

Just received my 2nd order from PV-40 lbs of seed garlic and assorted other items. Biggest heads of garlic I have ever seen! Quality and price were excellent. I also love their prices on bulk vegetable seeds. I am a small market grower selling produce, seeds, and plants and am very happy with everything I've received from this company so far.

Ordered 8 apple trees and 2 crab apple trees. Due to the wet, cold spring had to delay getting them in the ground. But all ten are doing great! Trees came well packaged and in good condition. I hope that they have their 10 for $199 special again next year. Great deal for good quality trees.

I was contacted by Katie from Peaceful Valley and offered replacement blueberries without shipping included, and at their current sale price. In the email, it appears that the explanation email concerning why the blueberries were out of stock seems to have been lost in transit.
I do appreciate their quick attention to detail and more-than-fairness in resolving this frustration.

I have ordered from this company a number of times over the years. It's a good place to get organic ferts of all kinds and stuff like rooting hormone. I've also bought row covers and rhizocoated white clover seed, and now that they have added Weck's canning jars to their food preservation selection, I ordered a bunch of them. Last time I ordered a bunch of the rubber rings for the jars and noted on the comment form that the shipping seemed pretty high for a bunch of rubber rings. They called me to tell me they reduced the shipping. I thought that was pretty nice.

I ordered several items for seed starting via their website. All items arrived within a week - faster than originally indicated. I've ordered from this company before and will continue to do so. PVF offers great products at reasonable prices and for reasonable shipping cost (esp. for folks out west, who suffer high shipping costs from companies in the eastern US).

I ordered a portabella mushroom kit and it was delivered on time and in good condition, I followed the directions exactly..but I got one or two mushrooms. I called the company and they immediately sent a replacement, no questions asked! Now we are enjoying lots of yummy mushrooms. I have ordered things from them before, and my experience has always been good, but this was above and beyond!

We have used this company to obtain a commercial grade of Bt (Bacillus thurengiensis) Dipel DF, an organic caterpillar killer. We have found it to control cabbage loopers, tomato hornworms, tent caterpillars and many more. We have found it interesting that we have also noticed reductions in the numbers of leaf miners in columbines and Swiss Chard , fruit tree borers, apple maggots, blueberry maggots and even the grub stage of Japanese beetles. We also have purchased organic seeds at reasonable prices from them and have always been satisfied with the products and customer service.

Ordered four Blueberry plants that were listed as 14". When they arrived two were roughly 6" and the other two roughly 9"-10". Would have purchased them somewhere else if I had known.

I received my first order from these folks today - blackberries & raspberries. Price-wise they were quite competitive. Due to the price I expected them to be decent-sized. They were not. They were HUGE. Much bigger diameter & roots than I expected. I am VERY pleased & will be using these folks again!

I have been very pleased with all my dealings with Peaceful Valley Farm Supply. They offer a wide verity of products for both the home gardener and commercial farmer. The products are reasonably priced and often the lowest prices I have found both locally and on the internet. Their service is excellent and they are very helpful if you have questions regarding your order or how to use the item you have bought to its best advantage. I spent several hundred dollars last year on garden equipment, organic fertilizers and seeds. I received them all promptly. When one of the items was not in stock they called me and asked if I wanted the whole order to wait and be shipped together or to have a partial shipment. If I have had questions on the best product for a specific purpose they have always been helpful in providing suggestions from their vast experience. I will continue to use them and I recommend them to all my family and friends because of their outstanding customer service, knowledge and fine product selection.

I've placed several orders with Peaceful Valley Farm Supply over the last year or two. My latest order was placed several weeks ago for about 15 lbs of various cover crop seeds and a couple of pounds of shallots. Their shipping on heavy orders is very reasonable.

Their website offered a deal--buy $100 of merchandise get a discount on a tumbling composter. When I tried to order merchandise on line the website prevented me; some of what I wanted then sold out. When I called to complain (and spoke to Ryan) they agreed to give me the composter discount even though my order without the out of stock items was well less than $100. Also, they offer free seeds for larger orders and I received 16 packets with my order. This was the number I would have qualified for only if I had purchased the out of stock items as well as the composter at full price.

I ordered 3 sunshine blueberry plants and an assortment of pheromone lures for my stone fruit orchard. All arrived in great shape and in the correct quantities. They even gave me some free seed packs of vegetable types that are hard to find!.. Their catalog is a treasure mine of information. They are clearly a specialist in tools for people and businesses who grow things.
