Being a Farmer Florist Means…

Farm Life

Being a Farmer Florist Means…

Getting involved in the entire lifecycle of the flowers we grow…from pouring though reams of catalogs and choosing just the right varieties…to ensuring our bouquets are filled with the right colors, textures, and scents…

Spending most of our days outside

Walking the field at dusk and soaking in the utter beauty that surrounds our daily lives

Trying endlessly to get the dirt out from under our fingernails…but never quite succeeding…

Watching the farm mascot nap in the sun while the bunnies munch on the flowers nearby

Rolling with the punches when mother nature sends you 80+° days in April…forcing you to harvest all your tulips immediately or face losing them

Witnessing the inner workings of mother nature and being proud that our flowers play an important role

Observing the various life cycles unfold around us…flower seedlings to harvest – Black swallowtail caterpillars to stunning butterflies  – fawns who return as young bucks to show off their antlers

Being soooo tired that you can’t see straight

Appreciating the wonder and joy in a recipient’s eyes when they receive a bouquet of flowers that I have toiled over and lovely designed for them

Surveying each and every bloom to get just the right feel for a bouquet
