We prefer to use our own vases for the following reasons:
For what’s currently in bloom have a look at the weekly availability.
You can also take a scroll through Instagram, what’s being posted for each month of the year.
Generally, spring’s most bountiful blooms are daffodils, ranunculus, anemones, Icelandic poppies, foxglove, sweet peas, and lupine. Summer’s stand-out flowers are dahlias, sunflowers, zinnias, lisianthus, snapdragons, cosmos, and many others. Autumn, depending on the weather, can see another round of sweet peas, anemones, and ranunculus, as well as heirloom chrysanthemums, and some late-blooming dahlias, to name a few.
We primarily use flowers that we grow, and typically have flowers available in abundance from the end of February to the middle of November. Because we don’t grow in heated, lighted greenhouses, availability is limited in the winter. It’s just not sustainable, and it’s not the way we farm. If it’s not feasible for us to provide flowers out of season, we will happily refer you to a florist that can better serve you.
The studio is located in The Wedding Space, a shared warehouse in SLO, near Trader Joe’s. Open by appointment only.
There are actually two locations, both leased. The field crops are grown off of Highway 41, between Morro Bay and Atascadero, and the greenhouse crops are grown in a hoop house at a commercial nursery in Los Osos.
Since the farm is on a private road that goes through easements of other private properties, it is not open to the public, except for one or two special events per year. You can stay tuned about events by following along on social media or by joining our newsletter.
With full service florals, the Farmermaid Flowers team handles everything from start to finish. Each package is unique to each couple and includes everything from consultation & custom design services to delivery & installation.
The budget-friendly, flexible option for couples who want the creative guidance of a design consultation and some professionally designed arrangements, but can handle the set-up & installation themselves.
