Helping our community plant a healthy and sustainable future
Toad Song Farm was actually started in 1985 by Ron and Betty Mizio. Mizio's Greenhouses began by producing plants for their neighbors' gardens and grew from there. In 1987, their daughter Mary started Auntie M's Enchanted Garden as a 'sprout' of the original greenhouse. Mary specialized in herbs and old-fashioned plants. In 2007, Ron and Betty retired. Mary and her husband Wade changed the name of the farm to Toad Song Farm in honor of the spring time concerts by thousands of frogs and toads.
Mary and Wade sell their quality, sustainably-grown plants from the greenhouses, at local farmers' markets, and at several plant and garden festivals throughout the Carolinas and Virginia each spring.
The farm also boasts a relaxing lavender labyrinth, nature trails, and meditation glens. Guests are welcome to bring a blanket and a picnic and relax for the afternoon. Mary is also a licensed massage and bodywork therapist (NC license #6628) and healing minister. Call to book appointments for hands on pain or stress reduction, or just for relaxation.
