Need more flowers in your life?
Our blooms are lovingly grown in Etowah, NC using sustainable methods. These flowers aren’t your everyday grocery store flowers shipped across continents, saturated with chemicals, stored in a warehouse or dyed blue (seriously, why all the fake blue flowers?). We have touched every seed, watered every stem, and cut every bloom with our own hands. We use nothing synthetic on our farm. Instead we nurture our flowers with compost, natural minerals, and encourage soil microbiology. Our goal is to increase the health of our land each year, which leaves you with beautiful blooms that are safe to stick your nose in and inhale deeply!
Each 3 gallon bucket has 50+ stems of our freshest blooms, perfect to fill several small vases, about 5-7 mason jars, or create a dazzling centerpiece (with some left over)! Your buckets will vary weekly, depending on what is blooming around the farm.
Special Events Buckets: Perfect for weddings, showers, family reunions, realtor open houses, or other special event. We offer 3 gallon buckets (50+ stems) for $45 or 5 gallon buckets (80+ stems, including a few larger flowers not available in 3 gallon buckets) for $85. Contact us at SidewaysFarm@gmail.com to discuss your needs and reserve your dates.
Perfect for restaurants, offices, or for a person who really loves flowers. Receive a 3 gallon bucket each week for 5 weeks at only $40.00 a bucket. That’s $200 for well over 250 stems of DIY happiness!
Two subscriptions options are available: either Monday morning pick-up from 8-10:00am September 4 - October 2, or Friday afternoon pick-up from 4-6:00pm September 1 - September 29.
Flower buckets are picked-up at Sideways Farm 62 Eade Rd. Etowah, or contact us at SidewaysFarm@gmail.com to discuss delivery options.
Can I give a weekly subscription as a gift?
Yes, it makes an excellent and well-loved gift! Great for someone in your life (obviously a loved one, but don’t forget teachers, and office staff) that deserves something special. If you think you'll need fewer flowers, check out our bouquet subscription.
What if I go on vacation?
You can arrange for a friend to pick them up, or let me know if you want to pick them up at the farm on an alternate day.
Will I get the same types of flowers every week or will they be different?
Yes and no, I’ll try my hardest to mix up styles and make sure you get a wide variety of flowers. It’s hard to predict exactly what I’ll have blooming from week to week, but your happiness is my top priority!
Why do you ask for payment before I receive my flowers? Is this a CSA? Is there any risk involved?
A subscription is a form of CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), by paying in advance you are helping us to reduce the burden of up-front costs to our farm (seeds and equipment). As farming is weather dependent there is always a risk, we try to lessen that risk by planting diverse types of crops.
How long will my flowers last?
We pride ourselves on producing quality blooms and using no synthetic products (which means no vase life preservatives). Most of our blooms last 5-7 days, with some champions lasting 7-10 days. There are also some beautiful flowers that only last 3-5 days; however, these flowers typically continue to bloom in the vase so simply snip off the spent blossom and wait for the next!
What can I do to help my flowers last longer?
Snip off the ends of the stems and get them into fresh tap water as soon as possible! Make sure that they always have a large supply of water in the vase, and every few days change the vase water completely. Additionally, keeping flowers away from fruit, drafts and direct sunlight can help increase vase life.
