Cedar Rock Gardens is an 18-acre farm located at 229 Concord Street in West Gloucester. The flower and veggie farm is owned and operated by Tucker Smith and Elise Jillson. Last year was their first in business with hours open to the public and it’s so exciting to see Tucker and Elise developing their growing enterprise. This year they have expanded seedling offerings (see the “read more” at the end of this post for a complete list of plants offered) and have devoted even more fields to pick-your-own flowers .

We’re looking forward to having Elise and Tucker on our podcast this weekend. When you see the two, wish them congratulations. Elise and Tucker became engaged this winter! 

Fields of pick-your-own tulips in a lovely array of hues. This color opens to pure carmine. See photo below.

You run into the nicest people at Cedar Rock Gardens. Captain Stefan Edick of the Schooner Adventure surveying early season offerings.

Cedar Rock Garden’s fabulous pick-your-own tulips are the perfect anecdote to April’s rainy days. This bouquet has become more beautiful with each passing moment. Only $4.50. for a bunch of gorgeousness!
