Local Grower Spotlight: Bare Mountain Farms

Nothing makes a florist happier than having amazing floral products delivered fresh from a local farm. Each week we wait to see what Tony from Bare Mountain Farms brings us and are never disappointed in the varieties, quality and color of his flowers.

Bare Mountain is located in Shedd, Oregon and uses organic and sustainable practices to produce high quality flowers.  They are strictly no-till meaning they don’t till their soil and thus help the soil retain its organic matter. Tony is so knowledgeable about his product and clearly finds joy in sharing his knowledge with those who have a desire to learn. It’s amazing how dedicated these farmers are to growing- especially being organic. It takes a TON of work. We get the most awesome job of crafting designs with the final product of their labor.

This must smell AMAZING!

They make their own compost tea for fertilizer

Anemones…a bridal favorite

Like I said, we are like children at Christmas when Tony arrives with his weekly choices and all oooh and aaah over them. They grow quite an array of blooms including sweet peas, ranunculus, lilies, anemones, snapdragons, dianthus, zinnias, dahlias and more. I can’t wait to get up to the farm in person and see the process and plantings in person.
