Cedar Mountain Perennials was established in 2009 on 20 acres just outside of Athol, Idaho. The nursery is located halfway between Coeur d’Alene and Sandpoint. We specialize in growing native plants for Inland Northwest Gardens.
The vast majority of what we grow are native to our local region and well adapted to our climate and soils. We grow nearly all our perennials from seed here at our nursery as well as many of our shrubs. We have been growing native plants for this area since 2010. We believe that native plants are ideal for gardens in our region as they require less maintenance and attention. They are also beneficial for pollinators in our region.
CMP is licensed by the State of Idaho and are members of the Idaho Native Plant Society and the Kinnikinnick Native Plant Society.
Cedar Mountain Perennials is a family owned and operated by Bob and Jill Wilson. Bob has degrees in botany, horticulture, and entomology. He is a certified Nursery Professional as well as plant diagnostician. He has worked as a plant propagator, nursery owner, and extension educator.
Jill has degrees in forestry and forest entomology. She spent 20 years working as a forest entomologist and supervisory forest health professional before joining Bob in establishing CMP. In addition to growing plants we also provide a number of other services including contract growing, site visits and landscaping advice, plant identification, pest and disease diagnosis and training.
We put all that to use in our work here at Cedar Mountain Perennials. Please stop by our booth, we love to talk plants!!
Greetings, we are Marie and Holly producers of amazing soaps. Moisturizing and therapeutic. We use coconut oil, olive oil and vegetable oil. No palm and no fragrance oils. Just essential oils. They help with skin problems such as dry skin and others. We encourage you to give our soaps a try. We make no miracle claims and use at your own risk.
At the Kootenai County Farmers Market, we find pleasure in helping people with their gardening needs.
After all, gardening is a fine art and often learning to get it right is a process of trial and error. That’s why we offer bold and beautiful perennials that not only survive but actually thrive in our North Idaho weather!
We offer a variety of stunning tango lilies, deer resistant perennials, shade loving plants, spectacular succulent arrangements, and much more!
DOMA Coffee has been roasting quality, organic coffee for 21 years. We were the first certified organic roaster in Idaho! We source ethical coffee and love what we do.
We use our business as a vehicle to do good in the world. Our theme for 2020 is “Do What Matters,” and, man, that has turned out to be pretty powerful. Challenging times, indeed. What a great time to bring out the best in all of us. Kinder, gentler, citizens of the planet rather than consumers. A great time to support each other on a community level. Over the years, we’ve made connections to build a culture, grow and support environmental causes, and work together to do good. In 2019 we talked about “Love People, Love the Planet” and in 2020 it’s “Do What Matters.” We’re all for combining the two as we move forward together.
Hello from Cocolalla! We’re Sara Marshall and Steve Stevick, the cheesemakers, farmers, dreamers, owners, milkers and caretakers at Eagle’s Dell Farm. Yes, we work hard, but this life is truly our passion.
As cheesemakers, our style reflects our personalities… adventurous, spontaneous, and creative. We love exploring and making a wide variety of fresh, ripened, aged and dried cheeses using recipes we’ve gathered from around the globe, and occasionally (sometimes by accident!) we’ll come up with our own creations to add to the mix. We love the rich history behind some of the cheeses we discover, and due to the varying and sometimes lengthy aging times for each cheese type, you’ll find a different selection from week to week depending upon what’s mature and ready in the “cheese cave”.
Having both goats and cows that we personally milk daily on our farm, we’re able to monitor the changing milk of the seasons (or breed) and match our creations to sync well with the butterfat and quantity of our milk. We’re careful to feed our girls only the highest quality alfalfa and grass hay, along with some specifically blended grain for our milking team, which keeps them all healthy and producing lots of sweet, butterfat-rich and creamy milk for us. Our farm management practices focus on clean, natural, preventative care, so our animals are healthy, happy, pampered producers.
Our small farm started as a dream almost a decade ago, and it’s grown from a handful of goats just a couple years ago to peaking at over 50 goats during kidding season, including Mini Nubians, Nubians, Lamanchas, and Nigerian Dwarf, along with our latest addition of two beautiful Dutch Belted Cows and a calf. We also have a garden and small, young orchard to produce some of the fabulous fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables we’ll offer in our bundles as available.
Visit our website to learn more about us, see photos of our farm, and in the off-season you can still get our handcrafted cheeses with our local pick-up or in-state shipping options. We were so honored and excited to make this our market home, and become an active part of this wonderful community here at Kootenai County Farmer’s Market! We look forward to meeting and getting to know each of you!
