Go Native Tree Farm is very sad to announce that most of our annual out of town events have been cancelled for 2021 due to COVID. We will , however, still be attending the Native Plant Palooza at the Robinson Nature Center along with hosting a spring and fall open house at our farm location. This year we are excited to announce that Keystone Wildflowers will be joining us for both open house events.
Please email with any pre-orders for the upcoming events. We strongly encourage people interested in specific plant species to email us ahead of time and ask us to reserve them for you. We will hold them for you until you can arrive at the sale. We will not sell your plants to other people before you arrive.

We are excited to host a fall open house at our farm location. Keystone Wildflowers will be joining us on Saturday October 9th from 9:00-3:00. Preorders are encouraged.
We have considered the factors involved in holding events without
becoming COVID-19 vectors.
We have decided to hold two open house events at Go Native Tree Farm for 2021. Keystone Wildflowers will be joining us on Saturday May 8th and again on Saturday October 9th. Please check out their website at www.keystonewildflowers.com. Both companies will be accepting preorders for the events.
Our open house will take place on May 7th-8th, and again on October 8th-9th, 2021.
The hours will be Friday from 9AM till 5PM and Saturday from 9AM till 3PM.
The nursery address is 678 South Chiques Road, Manheim, PA 17545. As always, we request that folks interested in coming to visit the
nursery please send us an email ahead of time, and include in the
email when they wish to visit and what plants they may be interested in. Go Native Tree Farm will be offering a 10% discount on all of the 15,000 or so plants we have on hand during our open house.
We believe that we can manage the event without introducing measurable risk from COVID-19. We want to observe safe practices.
This should include the following:
- the events are 100% outdoors. The farm is large, which gives everyone ample space to maintain social distancing. Six feet minimum; 10 feet is better.
- Visitors need to bring and wear their masks.
- Anyone who has had contact with COVID-19 positive people or who has been in high risk locations within 14 days is requested to NOT visit.
- We want to assure that a controlled number of visitors arrive at one time so that the amount of people visiting can be managed. We ask that you schedule a timeframe that works best for you. We will be scheduling people about every half hour.
It is therefore essential that folks send us an email ahead of time to tell us the best date and time that works for them.
