We've had an amazingly successful first year as flower farmers! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. ๐Ÿ’– We honestly couldn't have done it without your support. Here's to a fabulous 2018! โœจ๐Ÿ’โœจ๐Ÿ’โœจ๐Ÿ’โœจ๐Ÿ’โœจ๐Ÿ’โœจ๐Ÿ’โœจ๐Ÿ’โœจ #ZamoraFlora #bestnine #flowerfarm #growingcommunity #grownnotflown #growingbeauty #beginningfarmers #happynewyear

OMG look what just came in the mail! I think I freaked out my mail carrier a bit I was so excited ๐Ÿ™ˆ Also you can tell I was excited because I made a flat lay for like the first time ever. Haha! Whoโ€™s stoked to get this party started?!?!
The newsletter is nearly done. A monster headache has me slowing down for a little bit. A good soak and quick rest and Iโ€™ll be working to get that out tonight. The good news? There is still time to sign up for this round before it goes out. New subscriptions will be included until 8:00pm. This monthโ€™s line up has even more than I thought it would- that always seems to happen! I took good notes at the NYS Cut Flower Growers Conference :) For farmers: high tunnel soil health, Dahlia tips from the Cornell extension office and more. For customers- meet local event planners and photographers. Plus a special sale code for garden shears and aprons. Yea! #madeintheadk #flowerfarm #grownnotflown #weddingflowers

This mornings walk took me to the section of our yard that will be the site of our 2018 dahlia field. It was humbling to say the least and just a little bit intimidating. I mean, a quarter acre of dahlias alone..what was I thinking?! Could I do this? Could I grow/market that many dahlias successfully? Does the passion I have for growing this kind of beauty extend to all the hard work necessary to make this become a reality? And the answer is: if I believe in myself, I think I can and with my family behind me? I KNOW I can. Yes I will need help (so.much.help!) but I have finally found a way to create something beautiful in my own way, to be an artist; to work outdoors and be connected to this land I now call home. after thinking this all through I suddenly pictured that land in front of me in a whole new way. I saw the rows upon rows of beautiful flowers stretching out in front of me, I saw the butterflies that love to flutter from one dahlia to another, I saw the beauty that will be enjoyed by others as they pass by our farm and then I saw my boys, chasing their animals and playing hide n seek amongst the tall foliage of the giants like Spartacus, Ben Huston, JS Butterscotch & Holland Festival. Yes I better rest up these next few months because I know what's ahead of me and really, I'm just that much more excited now for what's to come..โœจ
I have two seasons of growing flowers for market under my belt. Growing flowers including all the tasks that come with it are my calm and therapy. Marketing and getting those beautiful blooms into your hands has caused more uncertainty and self doubt. Iโ€™m so very thankful for the florists, businesses, farmerโ€™s market customers, CSA subscribers, and fellow flower farmers that have reached out and supported us in 2017! Iโ€™m very excited to invest in some much needed education come January through the @floretflower workshop and already know from flipping through the workbook that I will come away so much more equipped to continue this dream. 2018 is looking to be a great season and an opportunity to meet many more flower lovers. ๐Ÿ’•
This is a drawing made entirely out of flower petals ๐Ÿฅ€ from our farm at one of our workshops last season.

Seeing these flooded and frozen beds this morning made me very thankful for all the hours of dahlia lifting in November - think Iโ€™d be throwing the trowel in if I hadnโ€™t - Bellmarsh Farm living up to its name
This is LOUISE from @thewildbunchflowerfarm .She and her husband Conrad farm gorgeous aliums, artichokes and other veg inspired flowers on their gorgeous farm in Wellington outside Cape Town, South Africa. They have huge hearts and that legendary South African work ethic and I am so thrilled to have been hosted by them so generously. Thank you ๐Ÿ’™and see you in March for more flower farming and design adventures and maybe even an outdoor bath ๐Ÿ›€๐Ÿฝ ๐Ÿคฉ

Project ingredients for the next few weeks ๐Ÿ’ช a lovely sight. We're putting up permanent fence lines (rabbit proofed) after 7 years of trial and error, rearranging and making do. This wood came from Abbey St Bathans, not far from us in the Lammermuir hills. It was cut on the hill, processed in the sawmill in the village & delivered by a lovely local chap. It's larch so will last for 20+ years without chemicals and age beautifully. #shoplocal #sustainablematerials #grownnotflown #growntolast #sustainableliving #wood #berwickshire #scottishborders #scotspirit #scotland
This year weโ€™ve been spreading the #SlowFlowers message to anyone that will listen. In all of our workshops and at every new client consultation, we start by stressing why we choose to buy local, America grown flowers. Origin matters and the industry is beginning to make it easier to shop intentionally. I๏ธ spotted these two stickers identifying #cagrown and #certifiedamericangrown at Trader Joeโ€™s. Expect to see more of this labeling in the years to come. Have you seen this labeling anywhere? Do you find this messaging helpful when youโ€™re at the checkout?
