In the beginning...
There was a poorly maintained barn and field. We restored the early 19th century barn and mowed down the woodies in the field.
Starting the Flower Farm
We began with two perennial rows and two rows of peony tubers as well as some shrubs.
We are growing!
Each year we expand our plantings, working towards a variety of unique as well as favored flowers and foliage.
We start many of our plants from seed in early spring using the soil block method and grow them under lights. We also order plant plugs to expand our offerings.
We roll out reusable landscape fabric and plant in hole patterns that we burn specific to different types of flowers. This helps to retain moisture in the hot summer but also works well for weed control.
We roll up the landscape fabric and drip hose from each of the annual rows. Then we amend the soil usually by adding compost. We also prep new rows for the following spring.
We Love Pollinators!
Sustainable farming methods are a mainstay on our farm.
We have two acres within our deer fence. We continue to add rows within this space so that we can bring you more flowers.
Our flowers bloom from June until October with the timing being determined by Mother Nature. As we add spaces under cover such as the greenhouse, we will be able to expand our coastal Maine season.
Enjoying Each Blossom
Each week, we put together quart and pint mason jar bouquets and sell them on the flower cart next to our driveway by the barn. We use an honor system with the attached box on the side. Each jar of flowers is $5. Since we do not charge for the mason jars, any returns are most welcomed. Perfect for those "just because" moments.
Check Out Our Bouquets!
The mason jar bouquets on our flower cart have been such a hit that we plan to offer them each season. Our goal is to have it out daily as weather and time permits.
If you have specific requests for mason jar bouquets or any other arrangements, the price does vary and will cost more than what we offer on the cart.
See below for examples of other arrangements.
