Fassett Farm Nursery is the product of the partnershp between landowner, Doug Clayton and former Katsura Landcare business owner, Aaron Abitz. The evolution of the idea for a nursery business, at what we have come to now call Fassett Farm, began in the summer of 2019 when the previous landowner handed down the property to Doug and his wife who had been caretaking for many years. It came with the charge, “we know you’ll do something good with it.” Doug hired foresters and undertook a logging operation that first winter to “get the view back” and clear out an amazing tangle of invasives. To follow, he was awarded a 2020 Conservation Opportunity Fund grant to do a native pollinator and wildlife planting. Around this time, he was getting reacquainted with Aaron and they began exploring nursery ideas together.
Aaron owned Katsura Landcare in Jaffrey, NH, an established landcare management company with a mindful whole systems approach. He had been serving the Monadnock Region for over 15 years by working with nature to ultimately create the best solutions for his clients as well as the environment with an emphasis on pollinator and edible gardens. His holistic approach provided an area with both abundant fruit, flowers, and vegetation while simultaneously reducing maintenance time by minimally managing the natural ecosystem that occurs when nature is taking its course. By observing each property through a forward-thinking lens, he created gardens that will thrive for generations to come. He was always drawn to using native plants in his landscapes and they weren't readily accessible for purchase in this area. He knew it was time to start growing them for his gardens and the community.
With their combined years of expertise and their passion for healing the earth, Fassett Farm Nursery was born and the two couldn't be any more excited to share it with you!
