Description

Wild Ozark is nestled in eastern mid-Madison county very near the Newton county line, way off the beaten pavement path. We grow a lot of rocks. Rocks? What kind of crop or product is that?

ARKANSAS MADE: Rocks are the bane of most farmers, maybe, but a very useful thing to an artist, as it turns out. I use the rocks to make pigments for my paints. The paintings I create are mostly of nature scenes, wildlife, and Ozark native plants in our beautiful earthy tones. For more information about this unique art, visit WildOzark.com. We sell original watercolor and oil paintings, and prints and notecards, too. To see my portfolio of works visit PaleoPaints.com.

STUDIO: Come out to Alpena, Arkansas to see my art in person. Open on Saturdays from 9am - 4pm. Learn more at my website. Sign up for my newsletter and check off the special interest group STUDIO to get a weekly update on last minute schedule changes.

ARKANSAS GROWN: Wild Ozark is also an American ginseng nursery. In spring through summer we sell potted seedlings for local pickup (at the nursery or in Alpena at my art studio inside Alpena Mercantile), and in fall we ship out bare-root seedlings. As well, we sell the companion plants that grow in the same habitat.

Our focus is helping people re-establish natural habitat for American ginseng. We have a little demonstration area to show and tell how to spot the plants, what kind of environment they like the best, and how to tell the difference between the ginseng and the tricky lookalikes.

Our nursery is tiny, so supplies are always limited. We propagate the companion plants in small quantities, and some take years to go from seed to ready-to-sell, so if there’s something you’d like us to start for you, please get in touch.

When late spring hail storms stay away, we keep a small but steady supply of 1-2 yr old ginseng, goldenseal, bloodroot, wild ginger, doll’s eyes, and Christmas ferns. Things like older ginseng specimen plants are available, but not in large quantities. Other companions like black or blue cohosh, American spikenard, vernal witch hazel, spicebush, and others need to be requested in advance.

For information about the ginseng nursery, please visit ginseng.WildOzark.com.
