I have been to 'The Farm' 2-3 times now. They have good prices and a lot of selection. Their gardens are gorgeous with beautiful layouts, although surprisingly shady for a daylily garden (but the daylilies grow beautifully nonetheless!) and CAN get difficult to traverse during extremely rainy conditions (there was an inaccessible part of their gardens the day after a rainstorm) so make sure to go BEFORE the rains hit!
I definitely recommend taking a look at their gardens, Bill is a hoot and is a really nice guy and they have a nice young lady that works for them, who is a pleasure to talk with in the down-time between daylily digs.
Bill and Margaret don't have an email or website (as far as I am aware of). I think they just prefer the simpler life, which I definitely respect. They do have a phone number, which I will not post here, but feel free to contact me if you are serious about visiting their farm and I will be happy to give you their phone number. They are very well-organized about their daylily busineses (every cultivar was placed in its own paper bag and labeled, and an itemized reciept was given to me with tax figured out, and then they helped me get the daylilies into the car).
It's worth it to just go see their gardens, but if you're looking to purchase daylilies there, a nice bonus you may find is that they occasionally give clump-sized portions even when you only purchase a DF. I think it just depends on the cultivar. I also got 4 fans of a bonus plant on my first visit (none on my other 1-2 visits...I'm not sure whether they give bonus plants for first-time visitors, for certain price-points, or just when they have extras they want to give away, but you might end up with a bonus fan or two when you go.)
