One of the best things about farming is the clean slate you get every year.  Take what worked well in the past year and add new ideas for what you hope will be the most successful and profitable year yet.  Throw in the unpredictable Mother Nature, the complexities of employees and the schedules of your customers and see what you get.

We’re sticking with the idea of an intern or two.  If you or someone you know likes the idea of digging in the dirt, playing with flowers, and getting away to the country for a bit, read more about it here.


There are some changes for the new year.  In 2016 we have added a second option for our weekly flower share.  The Flower Lovers’ Bonus is a four-week delivery of mostly tulips and ranunculus April 13 – May 4.  See the Flower Share page for details. This is in addition to the 18 week Summer Share from May to September.  More flowers!  More flowers!

We loved our trial run at the Blacksburg Farmers Market on Wednesday afternoons.  We’re planning on it again in 2016.

And finally — here it is!  The new logo:

Stonecrop New Logo

With this step complete, we’ll soon be printing new stickers for produce bags and bouquets, ordering brochures for the 2016 Flower Share, and finding an intern willing to be branded.
