finished planting the 50 trees i received
yesterday. They are amazing! Two of my neighbors
came over and i think they will be ordering some
also. They exceeded my expectations! Thanks ,
Porcupine Hollow Farm:
I am writing this
brief note to thank you for refunding the charge
of $24.00 on my recent shipment. When I spoke to
the gentleman who answered the phone the other
day about this matter, he indicated that he had
taken my order and told me that if he had said
me that there would be no charge
then he would simply refund the money back to my
account. I especially appreciate the fact that
he did not question me, argue about my
request or doubt the veracity of my account.
Such a forthright response is most unusual and
want to let you know that because of the quality
of the product I received and the handling of
this matter, I will be one of your loyal
customers. I will recommend and refer your
services to my neighbors and will utilize your
company when I place my next order. Although, I
recognize that I will not be your largest
customer, you can be assured that I will be one
of your most supportive.

been meaning to write to you since last summer! Attached
are pictures of our amazing balsam firs planted with
care from this order in May of 2008 on a south facing
slope in Belmont, Maine. Of the hundred we planted, we
lost only 2. They have been vigorous and wonderful since
day one. Many are already 8-10 feet tall and serve our
purpose of view blocking admirably. I mow around them
and enjoy walking among them. I thought you would enjoy
seeing the tiny trees after only 8 years!!

( The growth in
Maine even surprised me from 8-14" transplants!!) See
photos below. Pat@ Porcupine Hollow.
Thanks so much - the trees arrived today.
Boy, they look great and smell
wonderful!!! Thanks so much for your attentive service.

Thank you so much for finding Pine hill farms for me.

in my area please look me up.

A few weeks ago, I found
Porcupine Hollow Farm on the internet, and since it is only
about an hour, I elected to drive over. Prices off the lot
are different from the online prices for obvious reasons (bare
root vs. b&b or potted). The selection was good, with
a LOT of larger trees. I purchased a clump of 4 White Spire
Birch trees, 1 Brandywine Crabapple, 1 Northfire Maple, and
2 Meadowlark Forsythia bushes. The Birch was about 12' tall,
the other two trees about 10'-11'. All in all, excellent specimens.
Pat, the owner, is very knowledgeable, and helped me choose
good trees for my criteria. I planted them a couple of weeks
ago, and they are flourishing, including blooms on the crabapple,
and new growth already on everything. I highly recommend them
for both price and quality. I cannot attest to the online
experience though as I went there in person.
Thank you so much! They are
beautiful. Could you please tell me how to prepare the soil so
they best adapt. Remember, I am first planting them in very
tall and narrow plastic vases. This is how I will give them to
the students as gifts. Also, there are a bunch left over that I
want to plant on my property. I want to make sure they get the
proper sunlight, and soil mixture. Anyway, Thanks again. You
are a wonderful person.
PS How does one get started in your
line of business. I would love to learn to grow Japanese red
maples from seeds and sell them at a profit from my home.
Thank you for your wonderful Hansa roses. I purchased them late in
June, so I was concerned about their acclimatizing in their new home.
I have been purchasing bare root rugosa roses (mostly Hansa) for the
last 15 years, and yours were the healthiest and best developed lot
that I have ever seen. All ten plants took extremely well and are
thriving. We have planted them in three different suburbs of
Cleveland -- 6 by the lake (Lakewood), 2 in Parma (southern suburb,
but not snowbelt yet), and 2 in North Royalton (southern snowbelt).
Summer precipitation is different in all three areas. This year
Lakewood is suffering from a total drought, so watering is essential.
Parma is not much better off. North Royalton has enjoyed a few
Thank you for such wonderful plants. You will be my rose provider from
I will probably place another Hansa order for Spring 06, but after that,
I am not certain how often I will be able to accommodate 10
plants at a time --- unless we move just so that I can plant roses all

Just a note of thanks for helping us secure our
very large Christmas tree on to our small car
- we were the couple with the silver grand am. The tree is
beautiful-we decked it out with ornaments from our childhood
and were looking forward to having family and friends over
to see it...and hear the story about how we got it. :) Thank
you again - we enjoyed meeting you and Maggy.
Sincerely, Marcie & Schuyler
MERRY CHRISTMAS !
whom it may concern,
wanted you to know that our buying experience with Porky
farm has been a pleasurable one and from that you have a
loyal customer. Last year I ordered 100 red maples.
Instead, I received 100 Dogwoods. I called about the
mix-up and it was rectified immediately by sending out
the correct amount/species. What's more, You took my
word for it without even asking for proof and to top it
off you told me to keep the first incorrect order for
free! While that was not necessary and I offered to pay
for and keep the first batch of dogwoods also, you
refused to hear about it and told me to keep them.
Mistakes are made by us all but it's what we do about
them that defines us. Thanks again and by the way both
batches of trees are just beautiful (except the ones the
rabbits had there way with.)
Just wanted to let you
know that the Norway maple seedlings arrived Wednesday, and
they look wonderfully healthy. Thank you so much for being
so prompt in fixing the mix up with the order. I've been
busy potting the seedlings and getting my project ready to
Received my order today. The seedlings look good.
Definitely I will give you very good reviews on
internet to promote your business.
