The Chalet Farm is a 183-acre growing nursery tucked away in a quiet corner of Southeast Wisconsin where we grow the highest quality plants.
Our plants are fuller and more vigorous because we space them farther apart than in a traditional nursery setting. To us, it’s not about the quantity of plants we produce in a season, it’s about the quality.
High Quality Plants
The root systems of Chalet Farm grown plants are larger, stronger and healthier, due to the extra space allowing them to spread out, absorbing the necessary nutrients from our lake irrigated land. Many of our plants are even allowed an extra year to grow before we offer them for sale; giving our customers a hardier, more robust plant.
A Chalet-grown plant sets roots quickly after planting due to the fact that they are already acclimated to our type of soil and climate. Since our plants are climatized to our area, when they are planted in your garden in the Chicagoland area, they are guaranteed to succeed since they have already endured all of the natural elements at the farm that they will in their new home.
When in the Outdoor Gardens at Chalet, look for the Chalet Farms logo on many of our trees, shrubs and perennials. We bring fresh plants from the farm every week.
In addition to plants, we also produce 100% pure wildflower honey. The bees spend their days at the farm gathering nectar from a diverse variety of Chalet-grown plants and native local wildflowers, creating some of the finest honey available anywhere. Since honey is one of nature's purest foods, we never pasteurize it in order to retain the artisanal integrity of its innate health benefits.
