Locally Grown Organic Flowers

A few weeks ago, I received and email from Susan Studer King informing me of her wonderful organic flower farm Buckeye Blooms. Here is just a little snippet of the email to let you all know about this great company.

Buckeye Blooms, a new business that specializes in the production of chemical-free flowers for weddings and special events. We grow all of our flowers organically on our family farm near Lima, Ohio approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes north of Dayton. As a Dayton area leader in wedding planning, we thought you might be interested in learning more about what we can offer to you and your clients.

As a brief background, Buckeye Blooms is part of a growing “green” business and wedding industry that caters to clients who are seeking locally grown and environmentally friendly flowers and services. Most of the flowers in florists’ shops have been imported from South America or other regions of the world where they were treated with harmful chemicals. Having lived in Ecuador for over two years, I can attest to the amount of pollution and water shortages created by the commercial production of roses and other flowers that are destined for the U.S.

We believe there is a better way to grow flowers. In addition to being earth-friendly, the quality and freshness of our flowers is unrivaled in the region. Just as a home-grown tomato tastes better than a store-bought one, the freshest and most beautiful flowers come from the garden rather than the refrigerated section of a big box store . Our flowers arrive fresh and fragrant, just as nature intended.

We offer full floral design services and for brides seeking a unique way to choose their wedding flowers, we offer exclusive bridal “flower parties” on our picturesque family farm. For summer and early fall weddings, the bride and her bridesmaids have the opportunity to actually help pick flowers from our fields and gardens for their bouquets. We then give step-by-step instructions and help them to make their very own bridal bouquets. It is a fun and unique way for brides to create personalized bouquets for their special day.
If you would like additional information on how to contact Buckeye Blooms, please leave a comment with your email address and I send it your way.
