Today, I spent the afternoon in Pescadero with my mother. It’s a bit of a tradition we have to visit downtown and have pie at Duartes Tavern, stroll the “strip” and admire the quaint beauty Pescadero has to offer. It’s no surprise that there’s a small agricultural valley that Blue House Farm calls home, and grows beautiful vegetables, fruit and organic flowers year-round. We learned of Blue House Farm from Caroline, an employee we hired last year who harvested in the flower fields at Blue House. We then began getting weekly deliveries of their gorgeous organic flowers!
I asked Kasey, Blue House Farms organic flower manager, to give us a little bit of history and insight on the farm:
Can you give us a little history on your farm and how you got started?
How did you come up with your farm’s name?
What does organic farming mean to you?
You grow some amazing flowers. How do you achieve such quality?
Were organic flowers always in the plans, or did you start out with just produce?
What would you say would be your specialty in cut organic flowers?
What does the future hold for you, do you have plans to expand?
