At Shickasheen Farm, Inc, our passion for plants and gardening has been with us since we opened our doors in 1976. While Mary and her late husband Leo, originally used the property to care for race horses they soon found themselves growing field mums in what is now West Kingston Park. From there, they grew into a small nursery with a gift shop featuring Mary's handmade crafts.

In 2021, Mary retired at 95 years old and handed over the reigns to her grandson, Rob, and his wife Emma.

Today, we have expanded the our offerings to include perennials, shrubs, houseplants, gifts and more. We are proud to continue the legacy that Mary and Leo have created and strive to provide excellent customer service and high-quality plants to our customers.

My wife, Emma, and I took over Shickasheen Farm from my grandmother in 2021, just three weeks before our son, Chase, was born. 

Together, along with tremendous help from our friends and family, we have significantly grown Shickasheen.  We still have a long way to go and many plans ahead of us, but we truly can not do what we do without the support and loyalty from our customers. My grandmother was here for over 45 years and we hope to be here for another 45 and beyond.
