Lots of info about their growing practices is at https://www.rollingrivernursery.com/about-our-stock and at https://www.rollingrivernursery.com/family-a-farm/
... Wild bird-life has exploded too creating a riot of song and activity and our loyal dogs find deep purpose in their important efforts at keeping the bears, foxes, raccoons and ground squirrels out side the fence and out of the trees! It's taken a lot of work but it has been deeply satisfying to watch a previously denuded and barren landscape transform into a thriving lush ecosystem teaming with life! ...
I like what they're doing and our goals are very similar -- tailored for our tough high desert climate.
In spring 2015 we ordered over 100 rooted berry, kiwi, fig cuttings from Hartman's (wholesale), but they don't have nearly as many varieties. We want to grow as many varieties as possible to see which ones do best in our alkaline calcareous native soil (8.2 to 8.7 pH), the ferocious winds, drought and extreme heat and cold -- the opposite of Northern California.
Do they sell cuttings? We've been quite successful with pomegranate cuttings from the university in Yuma and we're currently working on our new and improved misting system.

I just got an email from Marc:
You can send us a list of what you want at any time and we will let you know if we have enough to sell. Grape cuttings go for 1.80 each and scionwood of fruit trees goes for 3.50 per stick that is enough to graft at least 2 trees. Currants and other berry types also sell for 3.50 per stick, enough for at least 2 cuttings.
