We prefer to use our own vases for the following reasons:

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.
We moved out of our SLO location in 2021 when Courtney bought her farm in Arroyo Grande. We now do all our design work in a barn there. We are not currently offering tours, or open to the public.
We are just east of the town of Arroyo Grande, and are also farming on leased land closer to Oceano.
Since we are deep in the quagmire of building out a new farm from scratch (in a pandemic) we’re not ready to be open to the public. We’re aiming for spring of 2023. 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.
