It’s hard to find a flower that isn’t beautiful, but a Garden Party Flower Farm bouquet is all the more remarkable because it carries a zero carbon footprint! Peter and Theresa grew organic fruits and vegetables for over 30 years before jumping into flower farming. They were actually hoping to retire but made the switch after learning about the unsustainable practices associated with cut flowers; they’re often treated with harmful chemicals and are imported long distances with unfair labor practices. Who can retire with that on their conscience? So the couple now applies their organic vegetable growing practices to flowers. They grow over 200 varieties on their farm and forage from their meadows and forest to create unique combinations in their bouquets. All of their cut blooms are grown without fossil fuel-dependent fertilizers and pesticides. GMOs and neonicotinoids are a big no-no, and crop rotation helps build healthy soil. Seedlings grow in a cool greenhouse with no added heat, meaning the Garden Party Flower Farm doesn’t produce any CO2 emissions! Peter and Theresa grow their blooms for designers and flower lovers in general. People can come to the farm and pick their beautiful bouquets, and special events are also welcome, but be sure to book your time slot in advance!
