We grow a wide variety of flowers, some of our favorites being cup & saucer, lisianthus and, of course, dahlias!

A SEASONAL BEING: FLOWERS
A Seasonal Being is a heartfelt flower business run by Sarah Leach (me). I have been a part of the Denver Urban Farm scene for almost 10 yrs. A Seasonal Being is my first solo farming adventure. It began in my own yard on the Westside of town. I'm happy to report that I will begin production on a 1/4 acre parcel this season. I grow specialty cut flowers as well as herbs for market, CSA, and events.

LITTLE SEED FLOWER FARM
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!
RED DOOR FLOWERS
Red Door Flowers is owned by Annie Sasseville, and she is a cut flower grower just outside of Boulder, CO. Annie has been growing & harvesting flowers in her own backyard for the last couple years. But in 2021, she made the big leap to start growing on 1/4 acre in Broomfield on a friend’s gorgeous ranch property. You will find dozens of different varieties of cut flowers and perennials grown at Red Door, but some of her favorites include snapdragons, peonies, celosia, sunflowers, dahlias and yarrow along with lots of fragrant herbs! Annie is committed to growing in a respectful and regenerative way for our land and its inhabitants.
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.
Rowdy Poppy was launched in 2018 and is the soul-child of grower and designer Kim Zimmerman. It is both a floral design house as well as an urban microfarm in the heart of Denver. Kim grew up in the Southeast and her gardening life started with her grandmother Gaga’s vegetable plot and prized African violets, eventually growing into Master Gardener training, Floret flower farming course, volunteer support to the horticulture staff at Denver Botanic Gardens, and many other formal and self-driven studies. Rowdy Poppy is Kim’s way of diving deeper into plant cultivation, swirling in her love of design, and leading a local and eco-friendly path for the future of floristry. Kim runs the business with her wife Michelle and the “help” of their many fur babies Panda, Dr. Mo Jellybeans, Harvey Wallbanger, and Tobin.
