Crossview Gardens is at the end of a dirt road in the small town of Morrisville, most closely known for being just a short drive from Stowe, a big resort town in Vermont. Harold told me that his grandparents purchased the farm in 1905 and his family has occupied it ever since. When his grandfather passed away in 1960, Harold’s father took over the then dairy farm and they milked cows for the next 27 years. In 1987, Harold and his family sold the cows and decided to “Milk the land a little differently,” says Harold. And milk the land they did. As of this May, Harold and his wife are proud to grow 2,500 varieties of Daylilies, 1,100 varieties of Hostas, 150 varieties of Daffodils (16,000 plants), over 100 varieties of Lilies, and “a bunch” of Peonies. I made him repeat these numbers to me because I couldn’t quite wrap my head around it.
