Feed your soul with farm fresh flowers from Sideways Farm!
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!
Purchase Your CSA Seasonal Flower Membership
Purchasing your CSA (community supported agriculture) membership now will ensure you have a weekly share of the freshest flowers and seasonal bounty from our fields and will help us prepare for the planting season ahead.
You can select spring, summer or fall memberships, and choose between mid-week Wednesday or weekend pick-up. For 2020 we have 3 flower options to suit your needs:
Each week you will receive a gorgeous arrangement of seasonal bounty consisting of at least 20 stems using flowers, herbs, foliage, and "twinkly bits" we grow or forage from our land. We harvest the freshest flowers from the field, all different colors and varieties, to give you a different design to brighten up your home or business every week.
Each week you will receive a beautiful bunch with 10 stems or more of one type of flower. Perfect for those that like the impact that a unified bunch brings. These bunches will change every week, ranging from yarrow with its tiny pastel blossoms to big bold sunflowers.
Buckets of Blossoms:
Each week you will receive a bucket filled with at least 75 stems of our freshest blooms, flowers, fillers, and greenery for you to arrange. Perfect for restaurants, the office, churches, or to create a dazzling centerpiece with some left over.

A little more about our farm...
We take a holistic approach to farming ensuring that the land, water, air and life work together. A portion of our land will always be left in it's natural state as a home for wildlife. Our pastured animals play a role in adding nutrients to the soil and they in turn consume some of our brewing grains. We work hard to consider and lessen our environmental impact by repurposing and reusing materials on the farm, actively taking steps to lower our energy consumption, and by living, buying and working local.
Restoring the Land
One of our key goals is to leave the land better than we found it. We use organic farming practices and speciality cover crops like those you see here in our sheep pasture. Composting, mobile animal shelters, and pasture cropping help to reintroduce microbes which aid in the repair of damaged and depleted soils. A healthy and sustainable ecosystem means healthy crops and nutritious foods.
