Farmers' Market Flower Punchcard
We grow some of the finest, most luxurious, ethically-raised flowers in the state of Minnesota, and beyond. We supply some of the Twin Cities' best florists and designers with our high-quality, organically-raised, local blooms--and we have plenty to share for your home or office!
The Farmers' Market Flower Punchcard is a great option for those folks who love our flowers, but want more flexibility in the summer than our weekly CSA allows. Lots of trips to the cabin anyone? The punchcard is a prepaid, flower-at-your-whim ticket to some deep breaths and bright-eye beauty this summer. Punchcard holders may use their cards whenever they like, all at once, or a little each week, as you will. Plus you're helping to support our small farm in the lean winter months, just like a typical CSA.
Bouquet selections are limited to what is available at our market stand on any given day. Come peruse on your whim, or call/email/message ahead and we can set aside what you need. It is advised for folks to come early for best selection.
A phenomenal gift! Treat yourself or your besties to some flower magic/medicine.
Market locations is St. Joseph and Minneapolis.
*Punchcards expire at the end of the market season, so be sure to get all your blooms!
A note on 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."
