About Us:

Welcome to Farmer's Daughter Gift and Garden Center. The family farm, which consists of 350 acres surrounding the garden center, has been in the family for over 100 years. The family is quite proud to be 4th generation farmers on the land and received the Pennsylvania State Century Farm Award.
The Garden Center was started by Megan Shaub, the daughter of Robert and Margaret Shaub, so it was appropriately named "Farmer's Daughter". Megan started the "market" in 1967, then 7 years old. By the side of the road she sold only string beans that were grown on the farm for local canneries, which are now out of business. The beans were sold for 25 cents per pound for many years and always picked fresh daily. Those beans not sold by 3:00 or 4:00 pm were put in a red express wagon and Megan pulled it to town to sell door to door for families' evening meals.
The "market" kept growing rapidly after Megan was of age to join 4-H. The 4-H Gardening Project required her to grow new and more varieties of vegetables each year. The customers liked this so much that her little garden couldn't produce enough to satisfy the demand. As the "market" kept expanding every year to meet the needs of loyal customers, the area devoted to growing produce grew to 50 acres.
After attending Penn State and with a course in Agriculture Business, a new building was erected in 1981 for Megan to sell the produce and also plants. Megan's knowledge of growing plants was very well received by those customers now buying plants instead of produce. The customers knew that the knowledge was present to provide them with healthy plants and products to make their gardening efforts successful. This continues to the present day with an even larger selection of plants, plus the addition of organic products such as seeds, insecticides, weed killers, soils, etc.
The evolving "market" quickly became Southern York County's Premier Gift & Garden Center. The Farmer's Daughter is well known for having the largest selection of regular and organic fertilizers, seed - regular, organic, packet and bulk, onion sets -yellow, red and white, seed potatoes, hard to find plants such as asparagus, horseradish, gooseberries, blueberries, raspberries - red, black, purple and gold, grapes, strawberries and more. Top quality perennials, annuals and vegetable plants start arriving every year in March. You will find thousands of hanging baskets starting the end of April and through May as well as a kaleidoscope of color from al
