bouquetFor the the life of our flower business, we’ve been hunkered down, pushing through, making do with little and solely working with what’s at hand. Limitation has always been the theme. The property we farm is not our own and is a small plot at that. We started with no money, little training and had to find a way for the flowers to turn a profit the first year and beyond. Don’t get me wrong, limitations can be a marvelous thing and we have learned an enormous amount by working around them! Limited resources = creative problem solving and through this process we’ve blown the doors off of what seemed possible both financially and production-wise per acre. But making do and going without is hard over time both on the physical body and morale. So 2013 is going to be different in the very best possible way!
