About Cole’s Garden Patch

Cole’s Garden Patch was created in 2012 with the sale of vegetables and some perennial plants from our vegetable garden/ flower beds located at 345 Oldfield Road, Miramichi, NB. It is located on Sheaview Farm owned and operated by Kirk, Tracy and Cole Shea.

Kirk has two wonderful sisters that share the family trait of digging in the dirt, ability to make things grow and don’t mind hard work! So a dream team was conceived, a brother, his talented wife, his son the CEO in which the patch is named after, and two great sisters! You can meet us any day of the week at the farm or we are just a phone call away.

In March 2013 we built a wooden structure greenhouse with the help of great friends and family to start a fledgling variety of vegetable plants, annual flowers, some herbs, perennial flowers and the odd shrub. Farmgate sales was the first goal, secondly we were able to supply the Miramichi Feeds Inc. with their young vegetable/annual flower plants for resale to their clientele. But the best, was our opportunity to be a vendor each Saturday at the Chatham Farmers Market!

What a wonderful experience to meet such great people that appreciated the care and concern we had grown these plants with and they continued to make us proud by returning for more great plants and would update us on the progress of each little plant.

In 2014 we pushed our greenhouse to its maximum potential adding a cold frame to help with space in the spring. We had great farmgate sales, supplied the Miramichi Feed Inc. again with their plants and participated in the Chatham Farmers Market. In October we erected a large engineered greenhouse which we christened in April 2015.

We have a great line up coming to you with blight resistant tomato plants, shock wave petunias, sweet potato vines, calibrachoes “orange sherbert” and many others!

We continue to be available for any questions about growing habits, bug patrol, water requirements and soil amendments. If we don’t know the answer we will poll the audience till we figure out the answer to your question.
