On Farm Events

Each season it is our honor to collaborate with amazing local small business owners to bring you a very special experience here on our flower farm.

“Thank you for a welcoming and wonderful afternoon! It was peaceful, full of tasty treats and beautiful flowers. Exceeded my expectations.”   ~ Jen

“After attending one of Shellie’s events in 2021, we were hooked! Each workshop that we’ve attended has been perfectly curated with ample time for the featured demonstration/theme, as well as time to explore the garden and create a take-home bouquet from Shellie’s cut flowers. We always have a fantastic time, and the atmosphere is so friendly and warm. We love the blooms so much that we have also become bouquet subscribers, which allows us to bring that happiness home with us more often!”  ~ Alexis & Sue
