Can I visit the farm?

We are a small-scale farm operation with limited staff. Because of this, our flower production areas are not open to the public. Regretfully, we cannot accommodate farm visits or pick-your-own at this time. 

How many acres do you farm?

While our property is 6 acres, our flower production areas are about 1/2 acre with small expansions planned each season. 

Do you offer flowers for weddings and other events?

We have been known to sell a bucket or two of fresh flowers for DIY weddings and events. While it isn't something we always have available, it is definitely worth checking in! Contact gretchen@backbeatfarm.com for more information.

Are you certified organic?

While we are not a certified organic farm, we strive to grow all of our vegetables, flowers and chickens using organic and climate friendly farming practices - no pesticides or herbicides here!

Do you sell wholesale?

Yes we do! If you are a florist or event specialist that is interested in our flowers, please send an e-mail to gretchen@backbeatfarm.com.

How should I care for my fresh flowers?

We harvest, hydrate and store our flowers properly in order to provide our customers with the freshest flowers possible. Cut flowers require nourishment and care even after being removed from the plant. Keep flowers hydrated and cool (away from direct sunlight and heat sources). Always re-cut your flower stems with clean, sharp pruners or a knife and place them in a clean container filled with fresh water. Re-cut the stems every couple days to keep them open to receiving nutrients and water (to extend vase life further, add floral food). Remove all lower leaves from contact with water and change water and rinse out container every other day.
