The owner of BlackRoot Farms, Eliot, working on a variegated Ficus benjamina bonsai.

Thanks for checking out the website! I grew up just a few miles down the road from BlackRoot Farms, and I spent a lot of time wandering the woods, climbing trees, and skipping rocks right here on the farm. That might be why I'm so nutty about trees. In my teens, something possessed me to go get a M.S. in Physics and spend 7 years working in nuclear physics, lithium batteries, and defense research. While that was a lot of fun, at some point I accepted that I'm a glutton for punishment, so I quit my career and began converting this property into BlackRoot Farms so I can provide YOU with great trees, shrubs, and bonsai.

I believe that nature is something many of us don't have or take time to enjoy enough, and I take pride in helping people reconnect with it, whether through watching a tree grow alongside their children or practicing the patient and quiet art of bonsai. 

If you're in the area and want to check out the nursery, chat about bonsai, or pet my dog, don't hesitate to call or message to setup a time.
