PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE PAGE FOR DETAILS REGARDING THE 2020 SEASON
May 4th, 2020
*** I am NOT 'OUT OF STOCK' and will have many, many beautiful plants available for walk up sales beginning May 20th. ***
First, let me say that I am overwhelmed with the amount of support, kind words, conversations and grace that has been extended to me over the last couple of months. To be truthful, when this whole pandemic began I sort of thought to myself, "I should be able to ride this out...?". Little did I ever expect that my sales would increase almost 2200% (yes, that's a real number). This type of growth is staggering, which is why I slammed the website down for pre-ordering at the end of April. It is also the reason why I pushed back opening day to May 20th (contrary to what some of you received on your confirmation emails if you placed your order early). Having said all of this, most of you know that I am a 'one woman operation', with an incredible staff of volunteers. The Shelter in Place Order, drastically decreased this staff of volunteers. I thank you in advance for your patience.
CURBSIDE PICK UP will only be offered during the times listed below and is broken into time slots according to order numbers. We will NOT be offering this service after this time period*.
Let me say here that I have zero idea what this process is going to look like. PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE OF YOUR FELLOW MAN, and please hug the side of the driveway to allow for traffic flow. When your turn has come, please roll down your window and give the person your order number or last name.

I will keep these hours until the greenhouse is sold out for the season. Last year that was the second week of June. Although, I strongly believe it will be much sooner than that this year.
MARCH 30, 2020
(Updated April 15, 2020)
In accordance with Governor Whitmer's Executive Order 2020-21, dated March 23, 2020, Michigan Heirlooms has been deemed an essential business. The Governor's second EO (2020-42) DID NOT change this status (Line #8).
*** DUE TO THE OVERWHELMING NUMBER OF PRE-ORDERS BEING PLACED, ONLINE ORDERING WILL CEASE AT MIDNIGHT APRIL 29TH. WE WILL STILL BE OPEN FOR WALK-UP SALES FROM OPENING DAY UNTIL SOLD OUT.
We have ramped-up production like no year before. During these unprecedented times, it is now more important than ever to grow at least some of your own ORGANIC food. We have your backs! I promise.
What will be different this season? At this point, other than exercising social distancing, and spreading out the plants to both greenhouses and outdoors - not too much. I have decided that all PRE-ORDERS will now be kept in the garage where a person will be stationed at all times to pull your order, quickly and efficiently.
Everyone's safety is of utmost concern to us. We are taking every precautionary measure to ensure cleanliness and sanitation within the greenhouse and on the property.
Should we still be under shelter in place orders by opening day, I will update this page with further precautionary actions we will take to ensure everyone's safety.
IF WE ARE STILL UNDER SHELTER IN PLACE ORDERS BY OPENING DAY (MAY 13th), YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO COME PICK UP YOUR PLANTS as they are considered FOOD.
Stay safe and pray for our Earth's healing.
