Need Flowers for Your Event?

- WE WILL NOT BE FILLING ORDERS DURING WINTER CLOSURE (12/17 - 1/8) -

If you would like to inquire about flowers for a future event please contact Allison Bauer at ajbauer@stanford.edu or Jessica Chu at jessgo@stanford.edu.

This year the farm featured 29 varieties of cut flowers - dahlias and sunflowers, celosia and asters, snapdragons and amaranth - many in shades of Cardinal red. We provided sustainably grown seasonal blooms for campus events. In addition to gracing many a campus table, these flowers provide habitat for beneficial insects that help control crop pests, and nectar for our resident bee hives.
