LITTLE SEED FLOWER FARM (LS)
Hi Friends! My name is Becky and I, along with my husband own a small farm in Johnstown. My love for the country began when I was a child. My Dad used to take us kids to my grandparents' farm in South Dakota for the summer. They had a huge garden and orchard. We would spend hours picking (and eating) strawberries, peas, apples and tomatoes. As I grew up, my dream of owning my own farm wouldn't go away. My husband and I moved to Colorado and away from the city life six years ago. We purchased our farm and just recently started transforming it into a cut flower farm. I can't wait to share with you what I've grown!

Hi there! My name is Lindsay, and my husband Brad and I own Reverie Fields, which is our cut flower farm in Boulder, Colorado. Reverie Fields was born in the fall of 2018, but the idea had always been there, just waiting for the right time and season to come to fruition. As a long time gardener I’ve grown our food, flowers and medicine, but suddenly it occurred to me what a necessary thing it is to share natures beauty, bounty and awe with our community. The growing space has expanded beyond our garden walls to our field, where I grow a carefully curated selection of cut flowers, herbs and native plants using organic and sustainable practices. I’m as passionate about growing beautiful botanicals as I am committed to growing in a respectful and regenerative way for our land and its inhabitants.
ROCKY MOUNTAIN BLOOMS (RMB)
Welcome to Rocky Mountain Blooms, I'm Diana. When we bought our three acre property 15 years ago it was my dream to start a flower farm. I officially started my farm operation in 2018 with the support of my husband, Terry, focused on dahlias which I have grown for over 30 years. It has always been my favorite since I lived in Oregon in the late 90's just five miles from Swan Island Dahlias. I love experimenting with new varieties of flowers that are compatible in our Colorado climate and region. All our crops are hand tended, from the initial starting of the seed to the soil prep, planting and harvesting using sustainable practices at every step. Let's grow the domestic flower community, one stem at a time! Thank you to the Colorado Flower Collective for creating these opportunities.

SOMEDAY FLOWER CO. (SD)
Someday Flower Co. is a long-held dream come to fruition by owner and operator, Katharine Pofit. Katie first fell in love with floral design while working in the vibrant New Orleans event industry. Her next adventure led her to a permaculture farm in Colorado. One summer, while growing vegetables, herbs, and berries, she decided to experiment with a small cut flower plot. Her plot soon grew into a source of inspiration and joy, both for Katie and those she shared her flowers with. Katie found that at any moment, flowers have something we can all relate to. They are full of life, fragile at times yet incredibly resilient at other times. She loves how flowers help people express emotion, signal change, and celebrate life stages. She finally decided to stop telling herself, "Someday I'll own my own flower farm" and make it a reality. This season, Katie is stewarding a 1/4 acre of land in Lakewood, focusing on cultivating healthy soils and supporting natural ecosystems. Katie will be growing ranunculus, dahlias and lisianthus plus many whimsical fillers and unique foliage.
