Our season begins in our unheated high tunnels in March and continues through late October or until the frost comes.
Our main crops range from ranunculus to peonies, stock, sweet peas, lisianthus, aster, sunflowers, to zinnias and dahlias. We also specialize in design-quality foliages like eucalyptus, ninebark, scented geranium and others.
Sweet Peas Flower Farm started as a fulfillment of a lifelong dream of walking through rows and rows of colorful blooms. Cecily grew up immersed with horticulture industry, started to pursue a career in landscape design but came to realize she was passionate about growing a product that could be incorporated with her design background. Thus a flower farm was established.
Over the years, Cecily has come to appreciate the challenges and uncertainty of the seasonal business. Being the caregiving and working with a product that is alive and growing in an area where the outside conditions can be unfavorable has been every-changing. The reward and appreciation of growing a bloom that is intricate, delicate and beautiful to share with the local market has been the greatest reward over the years.
