About Piscasaw Gardens
Hours & storefront
Check out our Markets Page for more information on where you can find us across the Chicago-land area for the 2020 farmers market season. Please contact us or your local market to check if we are attending on a specific date. We will start to attend markets as flowers and produce become harvestable.
We will be opening "Porch Pickup" for our flowers on the farm as they come into season, so please stay tuned for more information.
As vegetables come into season sometime in June we will be opening our storefront located at our new location!
A tidbit of our background
Piscasaw Gardens was born out of heritage and continues because of heritage. 12 years ago my grandmother, Selma Davidson, helped me begin to grow cut flowers. My love of all growing things flourished through her influence in my childhood, and also that of my mother, Janet Davidson and her mother, Mildred Blum. They gently corrected me and encouraged me when, in my youthful enthusiasm, I committed fatal errors such as planting bulbs root-side up. I was also a tag-along to my dad, Walter Davidson, a dairy farmer and field crop producer. I observed scouting and did soil sampling under his direction. Most importantly, my dad taught me that a farmer gets up and out to do the work no matter how wet, cold, windy or hot it is, and no matter how crappy one feels.
