FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Never been to a cut flower farm before? We get lots of questions! Here are some we get the most. 

If you don't see the answer to your question, please feel free to contact us!

Do you offer tours?


We are open to the public by appointment only or during classes/parties/CSA pickups. You may also tour the farm during the Sunday Colorado flower market at the farm from 8-10 am. If you are a photographer looking to have a professional session at our farm, please see our photography page for information.




What do you mean by "sustainable" growing practices? are you certified organic?


No, we are not certified, as this requires a costly investment that we are too small to make at this time. We do follow organic practices (no herbicide or pesticide spraying), drip irrigation which uses less water, and composting of our garden waste.

In 2019, we implemented a community composting program that allows us to reduce waste within our community. We follow low-waste farming principles, which means we reduce our use of single-use plastics and everything we purchase is meant to last at least five years (a more costly investment, but better for the environment). We grow everything from seed on site (instead of shipping in plugs), which minimizes our footprint and absolutely everything we sell is grown on site. This results in a bouquet that has a much lower ecological footprint.




Can I take photos at the farm?


Yes! We encourage you to bring your phone and camera and instagram away during classes, farm tours, and at the farmstand! (Please tag us in your photos so we can see!) We welcome professional shoots and our farm makes a lovely backdrop during all seasons. We do encourage photographers to visit our site before booking. For professional photo shoots, we have a reservation procedure and fee structure. Visit our photography page for more info.




What are classes like?


We love offering classes and giving everyone a chance to see the farm, spend time in the beautiful surroundings of our flower field, and connect with their community in the barn! See all our current classes here. Each class is unique but each one will leave you smiling and reconnected with nature. They are a great idea for bachelorette parties, bridal showers, or birthday celebrations. Your group will get to pick flowers in the field and arrange them with guidance from us. We have a maximum of 12 participants. Please contact us for more information on hosting a private party!




What do you grow on site?


We grow over 80 different varieties of flowers. In the spring, our offerings include hellebores, iris, anemone, ranunculus, lilac, flowering branches, tulips, and daffodils. In the summer, we have too many to list, but our favorites are dahlias, snapdragons, and zinnias! We are expanding our perennial program each year and look forward to increasing our offerings.




Where can we get flowers?


We have many ways of supporting your local Colorado flower farmer! You can purchase a CSA share (i.e. a weekly bouquet subscription throughout our growing season), order a custom arrangement for pickup or delivery, or attend a Sunday flower market at our farm fro 8-10 am! We also have a farmsstand onsite where have flowers out throughout the growing season. Farm stand is open daily from 8-10 am and 5-7 pm. Get all the details here! Please follow us on Facebook/Instagram to get updates with our offerings!




Do you sell to the public?


Yes! A great time to check us out is during our Sunday morning flower market from 8-10 am, at which time the farm is also open for you to walk around and see while you also get a chance to buy the freshest flowers around! We also have an onsite farm stand where we welcome anyone to buy our beautiful, fresh, Colorado-grown flowers (8-10 am and 5-7 pm daily). We also host pop up flower shops throughout the season, and offer a CSA (bouquet subscription) during our growing season!




Can I bring my child to a class?


You are welcome to bring your kids! We have lots of budding horticulturalists that attend classes. However, everyone who attends is required to purchase a ticket. This is due to space limitations in our barn. We do request that you keep your child closeby and not let them wander the farm for their personal safety. We thank you for your understanding!
