I had been growing flowers as a hobbyist for nearly thirty years before embarking on my journey as a flower farmer in 2017. For decades, I joyfully gifted these homegrown beauties to family, friends and to the community throughout the growing season. The joy that I received from sharing these flowers was nearly inexplicable; they had become my love language.
In early 2018, I became a graduate of the Floret Small Scale Flower Farm Workshop and with so much incredible support from my husband, son, extended family and close friends, jumped head first into the wild and beautiful world of growing cut flowers. In 2021, I began studying floral design and offering my flowers for local weddings. Nurturing the stems through the entire process, from field to vase, is my passion.
The "Slow Flower" movement is an important one to me. It intentionally connects locally-grown, in-season flowers, and the growers who tend to the seed-to-bloom process, with those buying the flowers who share similar values. It is a powerful way to have your purchase directly support the land, the soil, the pollinators, the blooms and the growers.
I have been an avid lover of nature and the outdoors for over three decades and have spent time in the backcountry of some of the most remarkable areas across the Western US. As a resident of Washington State for over two decades, the Cascade and Olympics Mountains have served as my playground for Nordic skiing, backpacking, hiking, trail running and another favorite hobby, foraging. In 2022, I was able to summit Mount Saint Helens and Mount Adams for the first time. When I'm not working diligently on my farm, chances are I'm in the mountains solo hiking or hiking with family and friends.
Thank you for your support of the local flower movement and of our family farm. I hope to have the opportunity to share my love of flowers with you. Click HERE to inquire or hop on over to SHOP to view my current offerings!
