Our Commitment

Stone Hollow Gardens began in 2015. Christopher and Emily Appelman moved into a windmill house nestled between two limestone ridges. The month after they moved in they broke ground, readying themselves for the garden to follow.
A month and a half later we were already selling plant starters at the Dubuque Farmers Market. Since then we have become known as the local foragers and growers. Eight months out of the year we organically farm, cultivate and forage mushrooms, and make jams/preserves with berries gathered from around the local area.
Our cultivated mushrooms are grown outside on logs. This growing method enhances flavor and makes each mushroom variety seasonal. Outside of the season we offer dehydrated mushrooms.
Stop by the Dubuque Farmer’s Market and visit the Stone Hollow Gardens stand. Throughout the season stay updated weekly.
