Welcome to Rebel Hill Farm

Thank You for finding us!


We are Julie and Pete Beckford. We grow certified organic field-grown perennials in Liberty, Maine.  Our specialty is native plants.

This new website and many pick-up orders helped us through the first pandemic spring. Thank you! Interest in native plants is a great, hopeful change in Maine.

Our plants are exceptional in quality.  We have been doing this for 35 years. The plants are field-grown and overwintered in the ground. They get dug and potted in the spring, so what you get is necessarily hardy, healthy, and robust. Most plants are in gallon size pots or six inch pots. They do not need to be planted right away. We are committed to ecological health in both how we grow plants and what we grow.

We are ready to take your phone orders for spring and summer 2023 planting.
Take a look at our Availability List and call us up! The garden is chock full, frozen under a blanket of snow and just waiting for a busy spring and summer. We start digging in mid-April and can have your plants ready for you in early-mid May. You can also place pre-orders with us for any of our public sales.
(The Sheepscot General plant sale has its own site. See list of public sales below.)
Can’t wait to talk plants with you, and thanks for planting natives!

Here’s how it works:

Look through this 2023 Rebel Hill Farm plant “Availability List” and decide what you want. Additional information about the native plants is in the Native Notes document. 

Call us to order
and arrange pick-up
(207) 589-3023

We will take your order (and talk about plants if you want). If you reach our voice mail, leave a brief message and we will call you back. Together we will arrange a pick-up time at our farm, or, if a few people order from your area, we will deliver orders. At the pick-up, you will need to pay us in exact change or with a check. We will practice physical distancing.

$11.50 (Includes sales tax.)
There may be a few exceptions to this price.
We are happy to take back any of our used pots if they are rinsed clean. Thanks for creating less trash, and saving us work.

We are a small farm.  Availability is limited and we will fill orders on a first come-first served basis.
