Milkweed and Conifers

By nature, milkweed is naturally growing on our farm.
Milkweed seed follows a growth cycle of sleep, creep, leap.

Milkweed habitat benefits the Monarch butterfly population.


Monarch butterflies make an amazing annual migration covering thousands of miles from Mexico across the United States, and to Canada,  It is a phenomenon that defines a sense of natural wonder.  In the last 20 years Monarch populations have declined by an estimated 90 percent primarily due to loss of prairie habitat, farm fence lines, and mowing of landscapes and thus the associated loss of milkweed.  Milkweed is a very specific plant that monarchs rely on to lay their eggs and feed on during the larval stage.
