a farming history
Hi, and welcome to our Colorado flower farm! My name is Briana Bosch, and I started the flower farm in 2019 with the support of my incredible husband. Though I received my MBA from University of California in 2010, cubicle life has just never been a fit for me. Farming runs in my blood; my father and grandfather were dairy and corn farmers in Southern Minnesota (that's my grandmother on the left--you can see many photos of my dad's family throughout our site), but I myself never thought I would get a chance to start up my own farm! We got lucky when we found 1.7 acres in the suburbs of Denver (Lakewood, to be exact) and moved to the farm in 2018. We named our farm Blossom & Branch Farm because of our unique land--half field (where we grow our field-grown flowers such as our annuals, roses and peonies), and half woods--from which we forage vines, berries, crabapples and wild lilac.
We strive to grow all of our flowers following organic practices, without the use of herbicides or pesticides. We are leaving half of our farm to provide a wooded forest preserve for wildlife, allowing the natural order to maintain on our land. We are focusing on rebuilding our soil and putting nutrients back into the earth, while planting varieties that attract and feed our bees. Varieties we are growing include dahlias, cosmos, snapdragons, zinnias, bells of Ireland, snapdragons, phlox, roses, peonies, clematis, sunflowers, and celosia. We love inviting friends to the farm to participate in our flower arranging classes in our barn space!
You can buy our flowers at our farm stand (during the bloom season) at 2440 Iris St. in Lakewood, Colorado, or directly from the field (contact us for wholesale pricing information). We hope you subscribe for updates and also follow our Facebook and Instagram pages for the most up-to-date info!
We aren't just about growing flowers. We want to create a sense of community around our farm--from our CSA member potluck dinners to sitting around sipping wine on date nights, and flower classes laughing together in the barn. We invite our neighbors into our farm and our hearts at our Colorado flower farm.
