2021 Summer Flower Share
If you love fresh flowers all summer long this is for you! Our Summer Flower Share works like a produce CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Your pre-payment helps our farm purchase the seeds and supplies needed to grow beautiful blooms each year. In exchange you will receive a generoursly sized market bouquet each week filled with the best of what is blooming from the fields. I always strive to make each week's flowers unique and special. This year we are offering two 4 week share options with a two week break inbetween, as well as 5 pick up locations. Once you make your selections make sure to mark your calendar so you remember which day is your flower day!

Our Promise to You
Your flowers will be ready to put right into a vase when you get them home. We harvest flowers within a 24 hour window to allow for the longest possible vase life, and to allow proper hydration of each bloom. While not all flowers will have the same vase life, we do try to select crops that will last approximately one week, if not longer, so you get the most for your investment. If ever you have an issue with your flowers please contact me right away so we can figure out what may be causing problems, your satisfaction is vital to my business and I will work with you to make things right.
Flower Care Tips
In order to make the most out of your investment in our farm, here are some tips to help keep your blooms as long as possible:
- Consider bringing a container of water with you on your pick up day. Your flowers will be in clean cool water until you pick them up, keep in mind how long it will be until you get them home, if you have additional stops to make it may be a good idea to bring a water source for them. A water bottle works great and should fir in the cup holder in your car.
- Please make sure your vase or vessel is CLEAN. Flower stems need to take in a lot of water to survive once cut. One of the quickest ways to lose flowers early is to use dirty vases. Giving vases them a good scrub with a splash of bleach should be sufficient.
- Please change the water every couple of days, along with a fresh cut to the stems, about 1/4 to 1/2 inch is all that is needed. The water your flowers are in should be clear, if it is becoming cloudy and murky, this means there is bacteria in the water which will clog the flower stems, making it difficult for water to travel through them, and ultimately the flowers die off.
- Location matters! Please try to avoid placing your blooms in direct sunlight and blasts of air from a fan or air conditioner.
