The Branch Ranch is a boutique farm nestled in the rolling hills of Northumberland near the village of Warkworth, Ontario. We grow select varieties of willows and dogwoods, chosen for their branches of vibrant colours and strong stems for ornamental arrangements, weaving and living willow structures. Our ornamental branches are used for the home, office, retail space, wedding, church and special events. They can stand alone in urns or vases, indoor or outdoor decorations mixed with evergreen boughs, in floral arrangements or as stick art. We hold workshops several times a year and also welcome groups for private classes, girl's weekends with catered lunches available and suggestions for accommodation in the area, please contact us for details. We teach weaving of baskets, bird feeders and garden items, winter urn decorating, christmas tabletops and branch wreathes. Check our events page or subscribe to our workshop email list for details.
The farm is open to the public weekends starting November 7th to December 6th, 9:30 - 4:30pm or weekdays by appointment, selling our branches, evergreen boughs, rose hip canes, eucalyptus, magnolia, decorative glitter and matte balls, botanicals, cones and natural ornaments. We will also have ready made urns, swags and hanging baskets available for you to decorate your home. Custom orders are welcome. In December there will be a selection of tabletop and centrepiece arrangements. New for 2015 we will be offering a limited number of hand made willow baskets and garden decor items for sale.
