Flower CSA Membership
A bouquet subscription is to your soul what a veggie CSA is to your belly. Fill yourself with beauty this season! Or give a magical gift to someone you love.
Our flowers are organically grown and beautifully arranged into lush and luxurious bouquets just for our CSA members once a week for ten weeks through the season! Sumptuous dahlias, romantic cosmos and foxglove, bold zinnias, lacy carrot flowers, and cheerful sunflowers; we grow hundreds of different kinds of flowers on our little family farm just south of St. Cloud.
Membership includes a subscription to our CSA newsletter that is packed with photos and farm updates, details about the flowers you're getting each week and often some bigger thoughts to think, as well as recipes and fun things from our Veggie CSA!
Currently we have these pickup locations:
- Lowry Hill Meats in Minneapolis, Tuesdays from 11:00AM-6:00PM
- On Farm, Tuesdays after Noon
- 3119 2nd Ave S, Minneapolis, Saturdays after 2:00
- TBA, St. Paul, Saturdays after 2:30
Specific start dates to be announced once the nature of the coming spring reveals herself, but bouquets will begin sometime in late June or early July, and go into to September for a total of 10 weeks of gorgeous blooms that you won't be able to find in any florist shop or grocery store--unless we're supplying them!
If your summer plans have you traveling up to the cabin a bunch and you feel like you'll miss too many bouquets to participate, check out our Farmers' Market punchcard--an option that gives you the flexibility to travel and adventure while still giving you a flower-filled season, and you're still supporting our farm in our leanest time, which is one of the most impactful reasons why small farmers choose the CSA model!
*We do not offer make-up bouquets if you miss a week, so be sure to get your flowers, or send a friend if you'll be out of town!
A note about organically grown, local flowers:
Have y'all ever thought about the carbon footprint of conventionally grown flowers? Or about the harsh human price the folks who work in the fields are paying, as well as the folks who handle the flowers post-harvest? Or about the ecological impact flower growing has on land and water? Because flowers aren't considered a food crop, the same safety regulations around herbicide, pesticide, and fungicide don't apply to them. Most flowers are grown in warm locations like Columbia, Ecuador, and Kenya, et al. They're harvested by hand by local people, who are often drastically underpaid, then trucked to an airport and flown to the Dutch flower auctions in Amsterdam. There they're purchased and flown to the region of their destination and then trucked again to your local grocery store so that folks can have perfect bunches of roses all year round.
Traditionally, the reason we have flowers as a key part to our ceremonies, gatherings, and in our homes is not just because of their beauty and fragrance, but because they absorb negativity, like a lightning rod, so that we and our ceremonies aren't harmed. They take on malice, or jealousy, or any other weirdness that can come from a bunch of people gathered together, and digest it into life-giving compost.
How can flowers give that gift when they already bear such a heavy burden? Local, sustainably-grown flowers carry none of that harsh burden, they're just beautiful, fresh, and full of life. When you choose local flowers for your home, ceremonies, or sweetheart not only are you supporting local farmers and local economies, you're also voting against the negative impact of conventional flowers, and you're bringing blooms to your most special places that have the strength and vitality to bless your moments.

"So fun to pick up a fresh bundle of flowers each week, they were artfully arranged and lasted often past the next week's bundle"

"Having a beautiful bouquet every week meant we got to learn about new flowers, the bouquets were big enough we sometimes divided them up into a couple to fill the rooms of our house, or to place in the guest room. Sometimes we even used the bouquet as the perfect gift for a friend or event."
