Welcome to Shady Oak Butterfly Farm! 


We are dedicated to helping others experience the joy of raising and caring for butterflies.


Releasing live butterflies is a beautiful way to celebrate special occasions and milestones in life. The sight of butterflies as they take flight is a memorable part of many weddings, birthdays, graduations, memorials, and other events. 

All of our butterflies are native species, and will flourish in the wild after the release. Butterflies can be shipped in a mass butterfly release box (all butterflies fly out at the same time, one person releasing them) or individual butterfly glassine envelopes (many individuals releasing one butterfly each).

For butterfly and moth enthusiasts, we offer hard-to-find species, and carry many butterfly and moth rearing accessories at reasonable prices.

 For the gardener who wishes to attract more butterflies and boost local butterfly populations, we have butterfly host and nectar plants available. Many of these butterfly host plants cannot be found at a traditional plant nursery. We also give away free butterfly plant seeds, look in our plant section to choose your free packets.

 For teachers and families sharing the butterfly life cycle with children, we have butterfly kits and teaching tools available. Our butterfly kits come in a variety of sizes, from a small tabletop butterfly kit for the coffee table to a large butterfly metamorphosis kit that can be used in classrooms. If you don’t see the butterfly kit you are looking for, just give us a call! We wish to help each customer have the best butterfly kit to fit their needs.

 As a gift, our butterfly kits are unique and fun. Children’s interest will be kept for weeks as they watch the metamorphosis of a caterpillar changing into a butterfly. Butterfly kits are not just for children, however, they are also a great gift for nature enthusiasts. It is easy to miss stages of a butterfly’s metamorphosis in the garden, but a butterfly kit keeps every stage visible and easily seen.

Thanks again for coming by, enjoy your visit!
