Vibrant and Diverse

On the land, you might see a robust flock of laying hens, pigs in a portable pen cultivating new ground, collections of medicinal herbs, and gorgeous sun and shade display gardens. A half-acre of pick-your-own pears, currants, gooseberries, and blueberries yields organic fruit from mid-July through October. 


From Thanksgiving to Christmas, we hand-tie fresh local balsam and mixed greens into wreath and garlands. Please call to special order your holiday decorations. 

Sustainable Agriculture

Wilder Hill Gardens is located on six acres in the hill town of Conway, Massachusetts. The nursery is open from April through October. Plants for sale include flowering shrubs, small fruits, select trees, perennial flowers, herbs and annuals.
