For the 2020 season, we ask you to place your orders in advance and pick them up at pre-arranged times. You can meet us at the farm, or on Wednesdays at the Papillion Farmers Market (new location at Papillion Landing). The market has recently begun to allow on-site purchases as well, with appropriate safety precautions. We plan to return to the Omaha Farmers Market in 2021.
Meristem Farm & Nursery is a certified organic farm and nursery located on a 100-year-old farmstead at the south edge of metropolitan Omaha, near Papio Creek and the historic downtown of Papillion, Nebraska.
Our primary business is the production of Aronia Berry plants (Aronia melanocarpa) for sale to growers and homeowners. We also sell the antioxidant-rich berries—both frozen and fresh. (Fresh berries are available only in late August and early September.)
Other products include certified organic produce, jam, eggs, bedding plants (in season), fruit trees, succulents, and native perennials.
Wondering about our name?
The meristem of a plant is at the tip of new shoots and roots: the growing point. We see the farm as a place where growth happens: growing healthy plants and food, growing the public interest in local food and native ecosystems, and growing the community’s connection to the land.
