Fern Ridge Farms
2014 has been another great year for us here at the nursery.
We've met lots of new friends hosting several garden club
and other groups from Rome, Gadsden, and Birmingham areas.
Even more local folks are discovering us and dropping in!
Of course, the cooler temperatures and abundance of rain
this summer was a big help for the plants and sales.
I do want to say thank you to all our friends in the Atlanta
and surrounding areas for their continued support and those
of you that have ventured outside the perimeter to make
the trip over to visit the nursery here. Although we may
be in the "country", most all agree this is a
wonderful area to escape. Not only to view beautiful farmlands,
but the mountains, rivers and lake areas are breath taking.
Over the past several years I've been really
blessed traveling about the Southeast giving talks and presentations
to garden clubs, Master Gardener groups and others. I can't
begin to tell you how grateful I am for the many folks I've
met and the friendships I've made. We continue to participate
as a vendor at some of the "best" plant sales
and events in the area. (Please contact us if we're missing
any- of course there are just so few weekends in the Spring!)
THANKS to each of you that have supported
us at these events over the years, as well as those of you
miles away that have "adopted" some of our plants
by ordering and received from shipping. Certainly without
you I would not been able to continue doing what I truly
love - growing quality plants for your enjoyment and satisfaction.
We are located in Northeast Alabama, just 40 minutes west
of Rome and 30 minutes east of Gadsden. For our Atlanta
friends the trip over is a couple of hours.
We do ship our ferns but have found that we
prefer to do shipping on a personal basis. Please call one
of the numbers listed below or send an e-mail. We will be
happy to help you.
Our phone number is 256-779-6351 and my
cell number is 770-634-8586.
My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
