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 sell the antioxidant-rich berries—both frozen and fresh. (Fresh berries are available only in late August and September.)
Other products include certified organic produce, jam, eggs, bedding plants (in season), fruit trees, succulents, and native perennials. For the 2023 season, you can find us at the Aksarben Farmers Market and the Papillion Farmers Market, as well as at the farm by appointment. To pre-order, please click on the Place Order tab.
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.
