Paisley Flower Farm
I feel incredibly lucky to grow flowers on land that has been in my husband's family for generations. My family lives and farms in the shadow of the Wellsville mountains and we often find pieces of farm tools, dishes, and toys in the soil we work. It reminds us of the love of the land and the appreciation for this land that has supported and sustained our family. My husband grows alfalfa with his family and operates an irrigation store in Logan. I work at home with our children and raise cut flowers for our local florists and flower-loving customers. I am so grateful for the many people in our community that support us as local farmers. I have been so impressed by the community's willingness to support a local farm and family. This encouragement is what keeps us going as we continue to work the land, and invest in growing cut flowers.
We Offer Flowers Through:
My name is Lindy Bankhead, and I began growing specialty cut flowers 7 years ago. I began in Landscape Architecture at Utah State University, and after graduation worked at several nurseries in Logan. While raising our children at home, my husband and I built a hoop house in 2012 and I started my farm called Paisley Flower Farm. It's a wonderful industry, and I've learned so much over 7 years. Local cut flowers are so important to our local florists and economy. They really fill a niche, that isn't available through traditional imported flowers. Local flowers are more unique, fresh, fragrant, colorful, and last longer. They hold special meaning for the customers enjoying them, as they know they were grown in the same special area that they call home. Florists are also so excited about local flowers, as I can grow and bring them flowers that they can't import in. Because I'm local, the quality of my flowers totally out shines the flowers flown in boxes from countries away. It's a special feeling, to show up to the florist's shop and have them so excited by what's in my truck! I enjoy what I do, and see it not as a job, but a life-long passion that I'm blessed to share with others.
