Hello Friends of Waldoch Farm
(Last updated 3/21/2020 we will contuine to have updates here or join our email list for the most current infromation on how COVID-19 is afecting our business.)
We hope everyone is taking the necessary precautions to keep each other safe. At Waldoch Farm we are preparing to delay our opening as needed for the safety of our community. This is just one of 104 years we have been part of this community and we will do whatever it takes to support community health. Traditionally, our contribution has been blooming flowers, healthy vegetables and a safe place to play and be outside. However, due to the COVID 19 outbreak we are taking the following proactive steps:
- We will be cancelling all Porch Parties and the Garden Center Open House.
- For now, the Garden Center and The Joyer Barnyard will remain closed until further notice.
Delaying the opening allows us to limit our staff exposure while still being able to prepare for a great season further out in the year. We feel like growing vegetable and flower gardens are an essential aspect of life. Keep in mind in Minnesota:
- We can plant our gardens in late May and still have success.
- Even vegetable gardens planted around Memorial Day are bountiful.
We are not making any changes to our calendars beyond May, at this time. We want to be part of the solution and keep our employees, customers, and community safe, and we are hopeful that we will be able to garden and enjoy all the fun the farm has to offer with you later in the season.
Joy in the garden,
Mary, Kathy, Andrew, and Doug and the whole Waldoch Farm Family
A Growing Experience Since 1916
Waldoch Farm is a family run Garden Center providing top-quality plants, garden accessories, produce and fall fun to Lino Lakes and the surrounding communities. We are located 20 minutes north of Minneapolis / St. Paul.
Our Mission: To be the community's connection to all things garden. Our wish is to inspire and cultivate a desire to grow things that make our corner of the world beautiful and dining tables delicious.
We offer a family friendly environment, come for an hour or spend the day. You can get a glimpse of farm animals at the adjoining barnyard, too!
