About the Farm

Growing heirloom and garden-style blooms is simply an outpouring of our desire to preserve—in words and actions—the simpler times of a bygone era. Times when families gathered around the table to share a meal and conversation. Times when little girls and boys gathered flowers by the handful to proudly present to their mothers. Times when serving those in our community mattered. Times we all still need—physically and emotionally.

What are garden-style flowers?

If you’ve purchased or received one of our bouquets, you may have noticed they look different than a bouquet you might purchase from a conventional florist. Our blooms have a more natural, sometimes whimsical look that’s difficult to find outside of a local farm or garden because many of the flowers we grow don’t ship well so they are inaccessible to florists. Yep! When you purchase flowers from a florist or supermarket, they were likely flown in from across the country or, most often, from South America.

When you buy flowers from our Flower Stand, you can walk the field where your blooms were planted, tended, and harvested by hand just a few hours earlier, knowing you hold a bouquet that your great-grandmother could have arranged from flowers grown in her garden.

Through the simple (though not easy) act of growing an abundance of specialty cut flowers and sharing them with others, we seek to cultivate the values we cherish:

  • Beauty – We are grateful witnesses and cultivators of beauty. Sharing the beauty we’ve been blessed with is one of our greatest joys.
  • Integrity – We seek to be genuine, humble, and trustworthy
  • Community – We serve others, show kindness, and extend grace
  • Stewarding Faithfully – We nourish and enrich our resources


We are committed to growing naturally and sustainably. That means we don’t use synthetic fertilizers or harmful chemical pesticides. Instead, we seek to enrich our soil because better soil means more nutrient-rich and better-tasting products, and healthier and more beautiful blooms. It’s better for the earth, air, and waterways. It’s better for bees and other pollinators. It’s better for you!

When you purchase flowers from Simple Leaf Farm you are joining a community of people supporting a local grower, a neighbor, a friend. We thank you for this, from the bottom of our hearts!
