Established in 2001 Arrowhead Dahlias is a small 3 acre family run specialty cut flower farm located in Platteville Colorado.We take great pride in producing quality fresh, seasonal and local blooms starting in May and continuing through September. We grow a wide variety of flowers, some of our favorites being cup & saucer, lisianthus and, of course, dahlias! Our love of nature and plants led us both to this profession and each and every day we enjoy watching the sheer joy fresh flowers bring to people’s faces!
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.
BLUSH FLOWERS ON VINE
The flowers at Blush Flowers on Vine are sustainably grown on our small family farm by me (Sue) with a lot of help from my two teenage sons, and my husband in Fort Collins. In our 5th year of operation, we grow over 50 different species of focal and filler flowers, as well as interesting foliages and seed pods so that local designers can have the freshest and most interesting selections for their creations.

Aaron will be stepping away from his full time job to jump into building a flower farm that supports a healthy ecosystem, the community, and produces great blooms in the process!
We are committed to growing high quality flowers that are beautiful, unique, long lasting, and grown with integrity. It is important to us that our growing practices ensure that we leave our little piece of Earth better for those who will come after us. We want you to know that when you buy a bunch of flowers from FloraBee, you are taking home flowers grown without herbicides, pesticides, or synthetic fertilizers. So breathe deeply. Enjoy those floral scents. Explore the texture of the leaves. Share the experience with your loved ones and accept the call from your flowers to be rooted in the present or to enjoy the warm memories they evoke. Flowers have brought so much joy and beauty into our home over the years and we hope they will do the same for you!

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!
Hi, my name is Alissa Joy. I was born and raised here, in Northern Colorado, on a small family farm. When I was young, my parents started growing organic vegetables. My six siblings and I worked alongside them to grow it into a thriving farm and business.
I grew up loving the country and the beauty of creation; more specifically, flowers! When I graduated high school, I decided to work with Calvin and Julie of Arrowhead Dahlias on their flower farm. I learned so much from them that summer! With encouragement from Calvin, Julie, and my family; I decided to start my own flower business. In 2016, I started what is now, MissAliss Blooms! I owe so much of my success to Calvin and Julie. The knowledge, advice, support, and love from them and from my family has been integral to my success. This year my wonderful fiance, Joel, will be joining MissAliss Blooms! He has already been a huge asset to me and my business. Our strengths compliment one another very well and he will continue to elevate each and every side of our business. We grow a wide variety of flowers to sell as mixed bouquets at local farmers markets, to restaurants, and are used for all kinds of other custom orders. Our specialty is creating floral designs for weddings and events in the Northern Colorado area!
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.

Village Farm is an organically run, semi-urban farm producing raspberries, strawberries, a rainbow of specialty pumpkins, and a large variety of wholesale flowers. We are a diverse family farm on a little more than 7 acres on the southwestern edge of Denver in Cherry Hills Village. We have been farming on this 100 year old pasture since 2015 and after taking the floret class in 2018 have expanded our growing pallet to include a broad wholesale flower selection. In 2018, we also added to our local fruit production which now includes a 3 acre orchard with apples, pears, plums and cherries, and a newly planted vineyard with several grape varieties. Our perennial beds include more than 50 varieties of peony and several varieties of woody greens and culinary herbs. We try to grow things that have a variety of markets and enjoy building skills and community through agricultural production in the city.
The Wild Wick's have been farming vegetables for 9 years at their Lakewood farmstead, but diversified to cut flowers as well three seasons ago. We grow our flowers with just as much care and aim for the highest quality we can achieve. The diversity at our little farm is something we take great pride in and love living in such a rich ecosystem. We look forward to providing the Collective with a wide variety of local, high quality cut flowers!
