Growing flowers at the farm is one of our favorite enterprises these days. It’s completely fascinating that, from a small seed, can emerge so much beauty and diversity. In 2016 we moved forward with plans to grow flowers and seeded hundreds of zinnias, planted over 30 types of roses, lavender and hundreds of perennials. This first summer we’ve been selling blooms to local floral designers and built a flower stand which we fill each morning with small arrangements.
Next season we have a long list of flowers we will be growing for customers and designers as well as incorporating a Upick garden for those who want to create their own bouquets.
Flowers at Soul Food Farm is still very new and we have so much to learn about planting, harvesting, transporting and marketing. But, we are inspired to try because it feels good to grow something that adds a little romance to life. Sometimes we forget how important the role beautiful objects play in keeping us happy and inspired. Sharing flowers is the perfect way to express love, build friendships and make even the simplest of spaces shine. I think this is what Flower Power really means.
Designers and Customers are encouraged to come visit our gardens. Please call for appointments 707-365-1798.
