FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
Both Nathan and Celeste grew-up in families with big gardens and their hands on the earth! Over the last years we have put our years of experience on assorted types of farms together..on New Year’s a few years past, we decided we wanted to make everything around us art and filled with beauty, a flower farm seemed like the most fulfilling way for that to happen!
Each stem you purchase from our farm has been planned from the very seed and specially handpicked. Our flowers are grown with organic practices in mind, and we work our land with permaculture techniques. Our arrangements are nontraditional, they are lush, asymmetrical, textural, and seasonally inspired by nature. We promise a truly unique, handcrafted and locally made design. To learn more about why, join the Slow Flower movement.
HOW BIG IS YOUR FARM?
We are an Urban-Micro-Sustainable-Homestead-Farm! In other words, we are SMALL! Our total land is currently broken up on two parcels of land, which total about 1 acre. But we do not believe that makes us inferior.. Unlike conventional farms, we think our hilly-land is an asset and we use it to our advantage by growing things in unique ways, and in different settings that are more conducive to the plants growth, and maintaining the integrity of our land.
CAN WE VISIT THE FARM?
As we are an operating farm, we do not offer individual farm tours. However, we do allow people to give themselves a tour of our gardens, and maybe even catch us working for a short chat..
