an update, because changes

Hey there! It’s been a while. Evidently blogging is not my forte, but I’m ok with that. I do however want to provide a small tid- bit of information to all of you out there who may be curious about what’s in store for Gray Acres for 2019.

Unfortunately, we have had to shut down all farm sales for this growing season in 2019. I won’t be at any farmer’s markets, taking any custom orders, or opening the farm to u-pick operations as was originally planned. This is not a permanent decision, but because planning flower fields and seasonal crops takes a lot of early investment, forethought, and intentional planning, I needed to make the decision early on rather than halfway through the season.

I always strive to offer the highest quality product, coupled with thoughtful and intentional customer service. When I plan my fields and share the flowers with my customers, I want to be able to provide a really positive and memorable experience, especially for brides and event planners who have so much already riding on their plate. Sadly, I cannot provide those things this year.

I am ambitious by nature, but sometimes we just can’t do everything all the time. And when we try to do all the things, usually the first things ignored and dropped are health, and relationships (they really should be the last). I’m working at preventing those things from being ignored, which is why this year will look a little different for us! If you’re still interested in all things plants and animals, please continue to follow along @grayacresprovisions on instagram. Gray Acres is not closing down, we are simply not selling to the public this season.

There are a few other local flower farmers that I would love to refer you to if you are looking for fresh, local and seasonal flowers for yourself or an event! Feel free to contact me and I can put you in touch with other local farmer-florists, depending on your locale.

Thank you again for your support, your interest in this little farm life I share, and for supporting local businesses. It was all of you who made 2018 such an incredibly successful year for me, and I look forward to serving you with my field grown flowers again soon!
