What We Do in the Winter

Tags: Farmers

Procuring locally grown flowers is hard enough when conditions are optimal in our region. Winter really tests our mettle. Not only do we persist, we thrive! It takes some changes - for us, for our growers, and for our customers.

Supply, logistics, products, expectations all shift. It's only natural - a rhythm that brings new and wonderful flowers, foliage, branches, berries and more into our shop. It also brings, to borrow from Future Islands, a craving for what has gone away - the local variety of spring, summer and fall field flowers.
