We will be closed for Labor Day on Monday, September 3rd.
RFWP is now offering wholesale pricing to all customers. That is typically about 20% less than retail pricing. We are not offering any kind of guarantee on plants purchased at wholesale prices. The owners are hoping to retire at the end of the year, so this is a great opportunity to get some unusual plants for your garden.
The 2018 price lists are available on our website. Just go to the catalog page.
Give us a call at 815-338-7442 or email us if you'd like to set up an appointment to look at trees in the field. Check our facebook page for updates on events.

Mano a Mano International works in rural Bolivia building clinics, schools, roads, and irrigation projects, and provides airplanes for medical emergencies. Rich and Susan visited these projects on their recent trip to Bolivia. 95% of funds collected are spent on projects.
Rich Eyre served in the Peace Corps 50 years ago in Bolivia, and in 1968 he worked there with Joan Velasquez. She and her husband Segundo began Mano a Mano International in 1994 to assist rural Bolivians with health care, economic development, and education. For her work, Joan received the Sargent Shriver Award for Distinguished Humanitarian Service 2008 for continued work by Returned Peace Corps Volunteers.
