We start with very clean 5 gallon buckets. We buy recycled pickle buckets and sanitize them in a bleach solution before every picking. It’s important because any kind of debris will block the plants ability to take in water most efficiently, causing stems to wilt. So we keep them clean and add floral preservative.

The hawthorn tree stands proud as her red berries fade to orange.
Sweet foxglove grows slowly, yet sturdily.
Dianthus shows strength during the cold, dark days.
Columbine creeps quietly out of the cover and braves the winter winds.
Lupine loves her bed of cool, rich Earth and black landscape fabric.
The rhododendron arbor beckons lovers to unite and brings bloom-ey, sing-song dreams.

With our organically grown flowers and Whitney Strader’s eye for detail, this wedding was a sultry summer dream!
The bridal bouquet featuring salmon zinnias, white cosmos, green/gold buplureum, peach dahlia, white snaps, white hydrangea, white ammi, and cream foxgloves.
I relish in the beauty that is a healthy flower. Not only do they look stunning, but they FEEL good. This is real. These flowers were planted from seed by kind souls who were paid decently and had a good lunch and these flowers were not sprayed with toxic chemicals and we ourselves were not sprayed with toxic chemicals. They had to travel 30 miles to get to this celebration. Us and the flowers, we’re all nourished by the sun and earth and rain and kind hands and that is definitely something that translates in the language of the heart. Thank you for reading this!

Courtney has been with us since the late summer of 2014 and we’re happy to announce that she is taking over some of the managerial aspects of the farm this year. She will be answering a lot of the e-mails and so I wanted to formally introduce her and toot her horn a bit!
Courtney graduated from Salisbury University with a B.A. in Environmental Studies and a minor in Art. She then went on to work at one of the most successful flower farms in the U.S., Wollam Gardens in V.A. She has studied off-grid natural building in Taos and worked the Peony harvest in Homer, Alaska. She is currently working for us and managing the gardens at a bed and breakfast that caters to people traveling with their dogs. She enjoys making jewelry, cooking and loves to kayak, hike and go rock climbing. She also likes beer (thumbs up).
In addition to working two jobs Courtney is also currently studying horticultural therapy through the Horticultural Therapy Institute. I love hearing about her classes and am so inspired by her motivation and love for nature and healing!
We are so grateful to have her for another season and to share more of the farm responsibilities with her. Her presence is calming and sweet and she brings a sense of stability that we so desperately need at times!
The farm has changed so much since we’ve had a baby…. it’s incredible to have the support of co-workers who know the drill.
Thank you COCO for all the peaceful beauty you have brought to our lives! And for putting up with pop country during bouquet sessions! xoxo
I’m fortunate enough to know this woman and her heart is every bit as beautiful as she looks in this photo.. She’s so kind, caring, and a force for good in this world. She is just a gem! I loved getting to see her in all her glory. I love the bouquet and flower crown Whitney made for her. I loved it ALL! But, let’s start from the beginning:
Dahlias, Mums, Sunflowers, Zinnia. Happy designer.
Dusty Miller. Happy helper!
We were blessed with a beautiful day that ended up being our last big harvest day of the season! The killing frost came on October 16th.
EAT & CELEBRATE
