Our Flower Power Quintet
Our Annuals and Perennials department does a lot! The five person team is responsible for filling our retail greenhouses with flowers and vegetable starts, care taking our cut flower field, and preparing flower arrangements for weddings, events and the farmstand. Michelle, our Greenhouse Manager has been with us since 2011. She is joined by Marnie, our Greenhouse Lead, who has been with us since 2018, and Ron, Ciel and Cristina.
Since 2013, we have been offering pick-your-own wedding flowers. Brides, Grooms and their wedding party join us for a day on the farm as they pick and arrange their bouquets under the direction of Michelle and Marnie in our flower barn.
Our flower field is also open for you-pick! Starting July 1st and running until frost you are welcome to bring scissors and containers to cut your very own flower bouquets. Most stems are $16/lb.
At the moment in the flower field Marnie’s favorite is Nigella (right), Ciel’s is salpiglossis (left), Cristina’s is Black Cohosh, Ron’s is Zinnias, and Michelle’s is Golden Queen Trollius.
A member of the crew can usually be found around the greenhouses or in the field if you ever have questions about the cut flowers, annuals, perennials or vegetable starts. We’ll see you in the field!
