We finally purchased land!
After over 2 years of searching for property, lots of ups and downs and heartbreaks (and definitly some tears on my part) we finally found the perfect piece of land to truly put down roots and call home. As you may know, we have been leasing the beautiful land where we currently farm from our friends at Southeastern Native Plant Nursery. While we are incredibly grateful to them for giving us a place to get started, we have BIG dreams that we can now finally start to build.
We purchased 28 beautiful acres in Asheville - the new farm is only 12 minutes from downtown. Our first priority is moving the farm operation to the new location. We will be expanding our fields (more space for more dahlias!) and also begin to plant perennial flowers and shrubs. We have already ordered hundreds of beauties like Japanese hybrid anemone and hellebores. We are so excited to expand our offering of specialty flowers like these to all of you, and of course to use them in our floral designs.
More workshops + an event space
Finding the perfect farm was a big challenge not only because its very difficult to find flat farm land here in the Blue Ridge mountains, but we also have big plans to host more workshops and gatherings. Yes, we plan to host intimate weddings and events at Flourish! We have LOTS of work to do to make this dream become a reality, so 2019 will be the earliest that we can begin hosting. We do plan to expand our workshop series and private sessions in 2018 and will have many more dates available - details and registration will be announced this December.
We are so beyond thrilled about the future of Flourish Flower Farm and that we can expand to share more of the beauty of the farm, our flowers and the Asheville area with all of you! We certainly have a long way to go before this project is complete, but we're ready to get to work on finally building this dream into a reality.
We can't thank you enough for your support as we grow this flower business - it truly wouldn't be possible without you, and we can't wait to host you at the new Flourish Flower Farm!
