Why Local Flowers?


Local flowers are better in every way than imported ones often found in grocery stores and retail florists. 

Imported flowers are typically:

  • drenched in toxic chemicals, herbicides and pesticides

  • transported by multiple airplanes and trucks before they get to you, after sometimes weeks of hand-offs and handling and intense processing to make them last out of water

  • encased in immense amounts of packaging with negative environmental consequences on both the front and back-end, and

  • often farmed under concerning labor standards and conditions.

When you buy your blooms from Bleeding Heart Flower Farm, you are: 

  • getting fresher flowers: grown, harvested and arranged here on-farm, then immediately sold

  • avoiding farming practices that are dangerous to humans, animals and the earth

  • accessing a wider variety of flowers, including delicate varieties importers seldom sell because their packaging & shipping limitations won't allow it (such as sweet peas, dahlias and iris)

  • supporting our local family with dollars we spend back in your businesses

  • supporting other locals we rely on for seeds, root stock, fertility, farm help, fencing, equipment and food 

  • flowers you can bury your nose in, knowing our non-GMO flowers are never sprayed with anything stronger than organic compost tea

  • enjoying blooms transported only from our local farm to you as a local purchaser

  • receiving a natural product farmed solely by Cindy and Greg, with occasional help from Valley teenagers in 4-H or interns in Ag Studies

We hope the abundance of fresh, organic beautiful flowers grown on our farm nurtures you. We are honored to share our abundance with you. Please enjoy this soul-quenching taste of nature, and breathe in the sweet fragrance of flowers as a gift for all your senses, from our Montana home to yours.
