NICE TO MEET YOU
My name is Vanessa. I'm a fourth year
farmer florist with a brand new farm just outside of Tacoma, WA. I got my start growing cut flowers for my 90 year old grandfather in the very soil he cultivated for 70 years. With an aching back and knees, he gave me his garden in 2017.
Grandfather keeps fresh flowers in his house every day in memory of his dear departed wife, my beloved grandmother. So it seemed only natural that my goal with that first garden on his land should be to return his generosity. I decided to grow him cut flowers in an effort to lessen the physical and financial burden of his romantic gesture in perpetuity. To his delight, and I like to think Grandmother's as well, I managed to keep his house filled with blooms all Summer long - and continue to do so to this day.
In the coming years, our business was born. The local community embraced us with open arms. We expanded our work force, solidified our practices/products, found our calling, and started building a farm of our own. Today we operate the farm and a traditional florist service committed to using 100% local and American blooms, always.
It brings me such great joy to have built a business in the same town my grandparents put down their roots 75 years ago. And it is my deepest hope that we're able to solidify our farm as an asset to the local community for 75 or more years to come.
is to aide in the fight for small American growers to reclaim a majority portion of the $7 billion American cut flower industry
not only educating in regard to, and advocating for, the consumption of American flowers
--but more importantly--
taking practical steps to grow the accessibility
and convenience of Local and American flowers in our own community.

how do I see your inventory?
Y In Winter, the best way to view our inventory is in the online store. You can order for delivery Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. Please place orders no less than 24 hours in advance. If you need a same day order, please call the farm at 253.254.6705. In the Spring and Summer/Fall seasons, you can still shop in the online store, but we also offer in-person on-farm shopping at the farm stand on Saturdays. You can see inventory previews on social media every Saturday morning.
are you a farm or a florist?
Both! We offer florist services and have an in house designer. But we also grow 1/8th of an acre of cut flowers every season which we then utilize in our seasonal designs. This is a model of floristry that used to be THE only model in America, back when the majority of cut flowers were not imported from other countries. It's sustainable, local, and seasonal, but we've updated it by adding local delivery, online ordering, and current/on-trend designs.
where are your flowers grown?
Most of the flowers you see in our designs were grown right here on the farm in Edgewood. We can't grow EVERYTHING, so we do supplement with foliage and flowers from other local farms, as well as, the Seattle Wholesale Growers Market. (SWGM is a flower farmer collective featuring the premiere West Coast flower producers.) In this way, we bring truly the BEST of what the region has to offer to our customers each week. We always say, if we didn't grow it, we know the farmer who did. We've committed to only using American grown blooms, and producing as much floral abundance as we can right here on the farm.
