Willow Creek Flower and Herb
In 2017, my daughter had the opportunity to travel to France on a school trip. We were looking for creative ways to fund-raise and decided to grow and sell fresh cut flower bouquets. We already grew a yard full of perennials and a large garden. So she and I planted a large patch of our garden into flowers for cutting. The community was supportive of our endeavor that season and I also greatly enjoyed it. The cut flower growing area of our property has steadily expanded since then and I am continually adding new and interesting flowers to my offerings.

I am a farm girl through and through. I was born and raised on a dairy farm in North Dakota, but we didn't just milk cows, we also raised beef cattle and all of the hay and grain needed to support both of the herds. Spring was a busy time on the farm between calving, planting the fields, first cutting of the alfalfa and planting the gardens. I say gardens because my mom planted one, my grandmother (who also lived on the the farm) planted one and my town grandpa also planted a large garden at the farm.
But then there was the flowers. The hedge row of peonies, the driveway lined with lilacs, and the farmyard dotted with flower beds full of perennials, just waiting on the annuals to be planted. It was a glorious place to grow up and a wonderful way to be raised. This is where my love of flowers was born, beside my mother and my grandmother, with our hands in the dirt and sweat on our brows.
