My husbands family have been crop farming for generations and I am the first Flower Farmer to join the ranks!
It has taken four years to build up the field gardens to a point that I am able to harvest a large variety of flowers, herbs and produce. My husband and I are looking forward to the future and hope to expand with more varieties of flowers, herbs and produce.
Early in March I start planting herbs for the year. We sell potted herbs as well as cut herbs from the field. I love that we will be doing herb bouquets next summer!

It’s important to know what you’re eating and what you are taking into your home. And it’s even more important to know what you aren’t eating. We want you to know that all of our products are pesticide-free. We water everything from our pond on property that is fully stocked with a variety of fish..this gives a bit of a natural fertilizer to the plants as well.
Flowers are cut the day before market. By hand-picking and selecting the flowers early in the morning you will have a bouquet that will last longer than most. And yes, I do weddings!
In addition to the cut flower market, We also grow an array of produce. From rhubarb and asparagus in the spring..to tomatoes, beans, squash, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and horseradish through the summer and fall.
We also grow and sell a small variety of perennials. Basically, we grow the plants I use for my cut flower market, but I grow a few extra and take them to market as well. Requirements are: they are beautiful, hardy, don't need a lot of care and have a relatively long vase life when cut.
