Great Northern Berries was formed as an outgrowth of our work at Wayside Farm in North Sandwich, NH, growers of unique flowering plants, to establish a small orchard offering a variety of fruit (berry) plants, fresh fruit, and pick-your-own fruit.
After preliminary groundwork and a great deal of research, Great Northern Berries became a reality in early 2013, producing interesting, high quality, fully hardy berry plants for sale to northern gardeners at a fair price. Our plant offerings include a number of great selections of High Bush Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum), Raspberry (Rubus idaeus), Aronia (Aronia melanocarpa or Chokeberry), Elderberry (Sambucus nigra), and the best assortment of Honeyberries (Lonicera caerulea) in the region.
Great Northern Berry plants in 6 quart pots are available for purchase and pick-up at Wayside Farm beginning in late April and may be reserved with a 50% deposit.
Our Plant Terraces, developed for use in our own hydroponic crop production, are available for purchase. More information can be found on the Plant Terrace page. Call or email for further information or to order.
Fresh picked and pick-your-own (PYO) fruit are available in 2018 as posted on Facebook and our signboards at the roadside. Fresh-picked fruit, frozen and vacuum sealed, is available for sale throughout the season. We sell Sandwich Creamery Ice Cream made with out fruit: Honeyberry, Raspberry, and Strawberry Rhubarb. You can also find a wide selection of jams and jellies and baked goods featuring our fruit.
All of our berry plants have been selected for production and harvest in the wine industry as well as offering potted plants for sale. We have a NH Liquor License enabling us to sell wine made with our berries from Hermit Woods Winery and Sap House Meadery.
