Farmgirl Flowers - https://farmgirlflowers.com/ has a flower store in SF and started a unique business concept of only using flowers in arrangements that are fresh and from local growers. She offers only a few, select, and FABUlous looking arrangements put together with flowers that are fresh. You don't order from a book of photos, you get the arrangement of the day.
With that idea, she started a movement of connecting like minded flower growers by creating a website called Field to Vase - http://fieldtovase.com/ . Field to Vase is a wonderful resource of flower growers all across the USA. The farm bio is written by the farmers themselves which gives life and personality and truth about what it takes to bring flowers to the general public.http://fieldtovase.com/windmill-farm-dreaming-colors-flowers-organizing-workspace/. Hope you enjoy it.
Our farm is a small 5 acre farm where we grow vegetables, have fruit trees, along with the house and gardens. Each year I have been adding more and more rows of cut flowers mixed in with the vegetables and am expanding deeper into cut flowers. It is thrilling to learn every year what works and what doesn't work; what people like, what they don't; what products are needed to grow flowers and to sell flowers.
If Frank didn't love the front side yard so much, I would disk up that area and just plant peonies and hydrangeas in rows, wouldn't that be beautiful to drive up the driveway and see a 1/4 acre of just peonies and hydrangeas? Thanks for visiting our little blog from Windmill Farm and I hope you enjoy looking through the Field To Vase contributors and their blog. I am inspired and I hope you are too.
