We want to thank everyone who came out to the one-year anniversary of our showroom! We had a blast and we are so grateful for this community.
A special thanks to @heirloomathens who provided some incredible catering for the event! @heirloomathens is a staple restaurant here in Athens, GA, built upon a deep passion for food and community that has been passed down for generations within their family. They source as many of their ingredients as possible locally, focusing on their relationships with local farms and keeping each dish fresh and changing with the season. They are also very supportive of local artisans, displaying their work in the restaurant, as well as hosting a Holiday Market every year.
If you haven’t eaten there, you should! Their Sunday brunches and homemade ice cream sandwiches are the best. Be sure to follow them so you can stay up to date on all the yummy food and fun events they host!
And if you are looking to make your Holiday preparations a little easier, you can order sides and desserts from @heirloomathens and just pick them up! Home cooking without the hassle. 👌🏼
Somehow I suckered my lovely husband to transition our organic, biodynamic farm to more flowers and industrial hemp. And thanks to our 2017 @usdagov NRCS grant, we've put up our third hoop house which will be home to our anemones and ranunculus, ready to bloom come early spring. More details of our farm's transition soon, but it's back to planting if we want armload of these gorgeous ruffles.

We are so grateful for an abundant 2017! Thank you, each and every one of you! 🙏✨My intention in this space is to add a little more beauty, light and goodness to the world, and to increase the appreciation and understanding of local agriculture and the small, independent family farm. I am truly humbled that so many have taken an interest in our flower filled life! And while I may not be the most active commentator (I communicate better in flowers than words), it has been amazing to connect with people all over the globe! For 2018, may we find the moments of beauty around us, know the beauty within and reflect it to one another through love, empathy, noble feelings and gentle will 🙏

Plenty of #blueberries this season. This blueberry was put in the ground 6 months ago after living in a pot. It’s now thriving in its own garden bed. I put it in a mix of pine bark and azalea mix and it’s produced so many berries 👏🏻 Hope everyone had had a great day 😊🌱🙋♀️

Strawberry 🍓 Mint & Lime shrub.....crafted with certified organic & locally grown strawberries with a touch of lime & mint. With no added liquid, all you see is 100% strawberry nectar in that bottle. A drizzle of this #gutsy nectar will bring out that ommph in berry compotes (perfect to serve with yoghurt, pancakes or waffles), whisk with balsamic vinegar to make a salad dressing (halloumi, watermelon & mint salad) or to add a refreshing touch to sparkling water. This shrub will be for sale this Saturday as a seasonal ferment. Once again a small batch ferment, only limited bottles available. 😉#gutsyferments#gutsyxmas
