If you want great looking, seasonal, fresh and locally grown flowers for your wedding or special event at an affordable price, our buckets of blooms are the way to go. DIY wedding flowers offer a way to save money while adding a unique and personal touch.
Grower's Choice or Designer's Choice
We offer two types of packages, "grower's choice" and "designer's choice." With both options you will receive a mix of focal flowers, fillers, and greenery.
Please note that with either option, we cannot guarantee with 100% certainty that we will have any specific flower on any exact day.
- Grower's Choice - we select all the flowers and colors based on what is looking beautiful and fresh on the day we are harvesting for your event. $75/bucket.
- Designer's Choice - you pick a color palette and we will fill your buckets with seasonal blooms of those colors. $90/bucket.
We recommend that you receive your flowers 2 days before your event. We do deliver for a fee of $0.50/mile. We have a $150 order minimum for flowers that are delivered. You can also pickup your flowers here on the farm.
The price of the flowers includes the cost of the bucket, and they are yours to keep if you desire. However, if you want to return them, we will happily wash and reuse them!

Perennial plans - this spring we planted some beautiful varieties of woody shrubs, including hydrangea, willow, dogwood, lilac, smokebush, winterberry and ninebark. We can't wait to offer their unique cuts, but we will have to.
New products in the pipeline! 'Flowerfetti' to throw at weddings, floral honey favors, and beeswax balms are now available in our online shop.
We grow a wide variety of high quality cut flowers in every imaginable color.
We take great care of our flower beds, and cut only the best blooms at the optimal times to ensure the longest possible vase life. Most of our flowers are cut the day before delivery, and stored in our walk-in cooler with a chlorine tab or a holding solution. Between our healthy soils, healthy plants, sterile equipment, and proper harvest and post-harvest practices, we are confident you will find our cuts beautiful and long-lasting.
The Local Advantage
Most flowers purchased in the U.S. were grown overseas. We would like to rebalance the equation. Here are some of the advantages of buying local flowers:
- More Varieties
- Because our flowers only travel for a few hours at most, we can provide flower varieties that do not store well or ship well, and instead are bred for their luxuriant colors, forms, or fragrances. Sure we can't grow varieties that thrive in the tropics, but we can grow dozens of beautiful and unique species and varieties that are not available from wholesale cataglogs.
- Guaranteed Quality
- You never know what condition your boxed deliveries will be in. But we are never going to hand you a bucket of sub-par flowers.
- Competitive Prices
- Because our flowers are not on refrigerated cruises across oceans, then trucked across the US, our transportation costs are much lower. This savings is reflected in our prices. There are some imported flowers whose wholesale price and quality we cannot compete with, but for most flowers we strive to provide superior product at a similar price.
- Tiny Footprint
- Local flowers are the environmentally sound choice. Our conscientious growing practices enhance the soils and our local ecosystem. Our flowers are pesticide-free and pollinator-friendly, so if you're the type to hold a bouquet to your face, go ahead and breathe deep.
Our homestead is nestled in the hills between Prairie Farm and Almena, with Turtle and Silver creeks running through. It is a beautiful mix of forest, pasture, and cropland, and we share it with a great many plants and animals, the vast majority of which run wild.
Maggie grew up in Ohio. She studied anthropology at the University of Akron. During her studies, she became interested in food production and accesibility while researching food insecurity at an urban elementary school. Following graduation, she began working on farms, first as a volunteer through WWOOF (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) in Colorado and Arizona. She then began working as a paid crewmember on vegetable and flower farms, first in Masachusetts, then in Wisconsin, where she met Ben and put down roots.
Ben grew up in south-central Wisconsin. Starting in 2008, he became in increasingly interested in farming, and worked on farms in Ecuador, Wisconsin, and Iowa. Ben relishes the open-ended possibilities of farming; every day is different, and there are always new skills to practice and concepts to absorb.
Dobby and Saber
Saber and Dobby work tirelessly digging holes, finding the best sticks and bones in the neighborhood, and chasing creatures. In her spare time Saber enjoys keeping watch and sleeping by the fire. Dobby would like you to play tug of war with her rope.
Mali and Kolby
Mali watches everyone else work but does not lift a paw herself, even when a mouse scurries past. Kolby spends her time sleeping and prowling, which keeps the dogs fascinated.
We have 3 laying hens that selflessly keep our cartons stocked. They tour the fields in their mobile coop while the weather is nice, and retire to their permanent coop when the snow falls. Their favorite plants are oats and peas, and they will never turn down a slug.
We have more bees than you can shake a stick at, but you should not shake a stick at them because they don't like fast or aggressive movements. The bees work harder than the rest of us, no doubt. Three weeks until they work their wings off, actually, but they are clean and well fed and we do our best to make it a pollinator paradise.
Where Are We?
We are in the field working. Unless there is snow on the ground, in which case we are reading a book by the fire.
