Planting Plants

What is a CSA?

CSA is an abbreviation for Community Supported Agriculture. But, instead of traditional agricultural products like veggies, we offer our community locally-grown, freshly-cut flowers! When you become a member of our CSA, you are buying a "share" of the flowers that we produce each season. 

Basically, you pay upfront for your season’s share (deadline to enroll is May 31 or until sold out ) and when spring arrives and our flowers begin to blossom your share is returned to you in the form of gorgeous bouquets. You may select the tulip CSA in May, short share (four weeks) or extended share (six weeks) and we will arrange the season's most beautiful flowers for you and have them available for pick-up at areas around the valley. 

 

By paying for a share upfront, our CSA members support us as we plan for the coming season. You are literally providing the seed money for the summer growing season. Your payment enables us to purchase new and exciting flower and seed varieties, restock supplies, make repairs, and invest in equipment and infrastructure. Your support helps to make the success of our season possible. Thank you. 

Montana Growing Season

Our little flowers and plants are grown with an abundance of love and personal attention. But Mother Nature always has the last word. Because our growing season is rather short, we have hand-selected blooms that mature quickly and rebloom over and over in a single summer. We start all our plants from seed or corm or bulbs on-site.
