Flowers are a key addition to my farm’s beauty, habitat creation and offerings. Premium, cut-to-order, locally grown stems endure less transport miles, are conditioned for long vase life, are fresher hence live longer than imports, and support financially sustainable, Organic farming in Sonoma County. Thank you for selecting flowers from this farm or other growers in our region.
The farm is located on Llano Rd. in Santa Rosa, CA.
In an effort to co-promote localized flower purchasing I'm a founding member of The North Bay Flower Collective.
