McDonald Farm Annual Plant Sale (Online)

Seeding has begun in our greenhouses to get a wide variety of organic vegetable and herb seedlings ready, and our native plant partners are growing our favorite native perennials and grasses in preparation for the McDonald Farm Annual Plant Sale.



2022 McDonald Farm Annual Plant Sale

Gardeners will delight in the many varieties of tomatoes, hot and sweet peppers, summer squash, cucumbers and herbs, milkweed, and other native forbs and grasses available for online ordering. Cowsmo organic compost, rain barrels and McDonald Farm honey will also be offered!


We’ll be accepting pre-orders online only again this year with easy, contactless pickups. There will be no cash and carry plant sales on the pickup dates.


How It Works

There will be separate ordering windows for native plants and veggies, but all orders will be picked up together on Friday, May 13th and Saturday, May 14th, so you just have to make one trip to McDonald Farm!

Pick Ups

Contactless Pickup at McDonald Farm
10S404 Knoch Knolls Rd
Naperville, IL 60565

Friday, May 13th & Saturday, May 14th


To help space everyone out and reduce wait times, we have scheduled pickups by last name as follows:


Friday, May 13th:
Last names A – D:  3:00pm – 5:00pm
Last names E – K: 5:00pm – 7:00pm


Saturday, May 14th:
Last names L – Q: 8:30am – 10:30am
Last names R – Z: 10:30am – 1:00pm


You can come any time on either day, but there may be a slight wait. We will not be offering delivery this year. You can pick up both native plants and vegetable seedlings at the same time, so you will not need to make two trips to McDonald Farm this year!


Peruse these at-a-glance variety lists, but remember things may sell out so shop early!
