Hi, my name is Sarah, and I love flowers so much that I decided to leave my career as a Registered Nurse to pursue my dream of flower farming in 2020. I've been married to a 4th generation grain farmer for the last 16 years and we're raising three boys ages 13, 10 and 7 on our beautiful slice of heaven on the Alberta prairies.
I have always had a garden, but it was only 8 years ago that I started growing cut flowers. I hadn't ever really thought about it until I started following some cut flower farmers on Instagram and fell in love. I didn't even know what a dahlia was, and now I'll be growing about 2000 of them for the 2023 growing season.
From a lot of trial and error, I quickly learned what I wanted to grow in my own garden, and what would work best for our short 100 day growing season in zone 3b Wheatland County. The best and most frustrating part about growing flowers is learning from all the mistakes I have made, and always wanting to do better.
When I'm not busy working with the flowers, I'm tending to our dozens of chickens, ducks and geese. We like to get away to the Okanagan Lake for our annual summer vacation and we like to save up to go to Disneyland every few years too. In the winter, you'll find us at arenas across south/central Alberta as all three of our boys play hockey and we absolutely love it. Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you'll follow along!
