Peace Tree Farm

Growing unique & unusual plants for over 25 years

Located in Kintnersville, in the countryside of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Peace Tree Farm encompases an acre of greenhouses on a historic 25-acre farm. The property purchased by Lloyd and Candy Traven in 1983, was named 'Peace Tree Farm' inspired by the Native American word "tohickon", which means "peace tree".

 

Growing herbs, begonias, poinsettias as well as specialty annuals and blooming potted crops, we provide other growers with prefinished and young plants, and offer fine quality finished plants to independent garden centers, botanical gardens, museums, estate gardeners and horticultural groups.

 

Peace Tree Farm has become the model of innovation in the community of growers for investing in automation and sophisticated environmental controls in state-of-the-art greenhouses. In February 2009 Peace Tree Farm became one of the first greenhouse operations in the region to obtain organic certification.

 

Plants from Peace Tree Farm have been seen at Longwood Gardens, Chanticleer, New York Botanical Garden, Winterthur Museum, Washington National Cathedral and the Smithsonian Institution.
