Just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.

Why locally grown flowers?

Around 80% of flowers sold in the US are imported. Locally grown flowers offer a more sustainable alternative. We specialize in flowers grown in Oklahoma City that bring the scent and vibrancy of the garden right into your home or celebration.

When you buy a bouquet at the store or from your florist, it’s worth asking:

Who grew the flowers?

Did they receive a living wage?

Were the flowers shipped in from another country? What is their carbon footprint? 

What chemicals were sprayed on them?

Like with the Slow Food movement, purchasing locally grown flowers indicates an appreciation of what is local, seasonal and sustainable. When you buy flowers from us, you know you are supporting the local economy and even have the opportunity to come to the farm to see where your flowers grow and meet the people who grow them.
