Hilltop Farm From the Air


Hilltop Farm - The Gardener's Greenhouse

Hilltop Farm is Southwest Missouri's retail source for well-grown plants, both common and unusual. With a full selection of home grown annuals, perennials, edibles, tropicals, and exotics, we have the best selection, prices, and quality for all your gardening needs.

  • Our mission is to make your life a healthier one and your world a more beautiful one.

  • Our goal is to inspire you (and assist you) to "get out and grow" - to live a healthy lifestyle by raising your own fresh fruits and vegetables while you also get the physical and emotional benefits that come with "digging in the dirt."

  • We also want to improve your world with ornamental plants that serve to beautify your surroundings while also benefiting birds, bees, butterflies, and other wildlife.

  • Most of all, through all that we do and say, may we somehow encourage you and brightening your day.
