We have been growing cut flowers for over twenty years. We started completely by accident, planting flowers to supplement leaf cutter bees that RT had raised since boyhood. As the market for leaf cutter bees dwindled we began to explore the world of cut flowers. A true farmer and "plants man", RT fell in love with flowers and created a market to support his new found obsession. We sold at farmers' markets and craft fairs for several years until we had an opportunity to turn this part-time hobby/income into a full time business.
In the spring of 2000 we made our first whole sale deliveries to Sun Valley, Idaho and Jackson, Wyoming. Along the way we learned a great deal about farming and selling and running a business. We've learned about ourselves too, as business partners and as a couple. We also discovered personal assets and developed skills. AND we made mistakes, loads and loads of mistakes. Mistakes that showed us new ways of doing things that helped us adapt and change. We put all of this together in a gorgeous little book that I am so happy to share.
