Land of the Giants Hosta Farm is owned and operated by Jeff and Penny Miller and located in Milton, Wisconsin. What started out as only 25 different hosta varieties has over the years turned into over 2700 different varieties. With over 340,000 planted in our gardens. Most of which are rare and unique hostas, not found at local nurseries but are eagerly sought after by devoted collectors and shade lovers nationwide.
Jeff also loves studying the plants and hybridizes every year to create new and garden worthy plants, including many Giantland hostas that will be coming to market very soon. In addition to growing our hybridized seeds in the winter months, Jeff does talks across the country about hostas and hybridizing. We will be posting the dates of those talks on our site if you would like to come out and join us.
We have 2 children Ashley and Andrew, they both are not too far away and we sure enjoy seeing them when they come and visit.
Penny has a terrible degenerative hereditary disease that caused her to stop working several years ago. It is called Huntington’s Disease. It is a cross of Parkinsons Disease, Alzheimers Disease and Muscular Distrophy. She cannot do much in the gardens anymore but loves meeting people. If you see her walk a little funny or talk a little funny, just know it is the disease. The factory that I worked for shut down and I had enough seniority that I could take a reduced retirement. We both enjoyed gardening and started this business. The business continues every year to get bigger and bigger with more gardens and more hostas. The income from the business helps greatly with Penny’s medical expenses and to help maintain the gardens. What Penny and I enjoy more than anything is meeting all the great people that have came here or bought hostas from us online. We are blessed to have so many great hosta enthusiasts and gardeners in our lives. We have many people help us with the gardens and we couldn’t do this without them, but there are two people that come all the time and help, Bonita Wilson and Pete Krueger. They are extraordinary people that have touched our hearts in so many ways. We don’t know what we would do without them.
Last year we proudly donated over $34,000 worth of plants and gardening equipment to many different gardening ventures all across this great nation. All we ask is for them to play it forward, do something nice for someone else. If you would like to come and volunteer we would be honored to have you. Please call 608/ 580-0190 thanks.
