Mason Jar Bouquet Sales 2020
We've been extremely fortunate to be able to sell flowers this year at the pick up location where Dave Elliott of Blue Mountain Farm is selling in the Hagerstown area. It is conveniently located close to our farm and has worked out well for all of our customers. We are indebted to the owner of the farm who allows us to use their lovely stone springhouse for pick ups. Below is a picture of the location.
We've chosen to do a modified CSA this year. A true CSA would be a prepaid subscription service, but we allow our customers to pick and choose the weeks that they wish to buy and to pay as they go and this has worked out well. Most customers buy either all or several weeks of the month, and some just choose one week--whatever works for them works for us and we've been able to sell throughout the quarantine. Many customers have commented on how much the flowers have brightened their days and those of their friends and family. :) We are so happy that during this difficult year our flowers have provided a little happiness during some dark times. It brings to mind a favorite quote: "in joy or sadness, flowers are our constant friends". Never has this seemed more true.
Anyone who is interested can order a bouquet, they simply need to sign up for our weekly email, on the main website pages, which comes out every Friday. Pricing and more specific flower information is available in the email. The pick up location is in the Beaver Creek area and the pick up day is on Tuesdays anytime between noon and 8pm. This will continue through the end of the 2020 season sometime in mid October, depending on the weather.

Special requests for mason jar bouquets on days other than Tuesday can usually be accommodated--please email email@example.com if you are in need of flowers. It is helpful to know the occasion the flowers are needed for, when you would plan to pick up or need them delivered, and what colors you prefer (we can’t always fulfill color requests, but will let you know and discuss it). A small surcharge is often charged at the discretion of the farm if the bouquets are needed on a day other than Tuesday to allow for the custom picking and extra flower arranging time that is needed. Delivery is available in the greater Hagerstown area for a flat fee of $5.
Here are just a few of the bouquets from this year so far.
Buckets of flowers are also available beginning in late July. Please feel free to ask about them!
