PLOW AND STAR FARM
My husband and I moved to a 6-acre farm in the Finger Lakes region of central New York in 2009 and since then we’ve dreamed of growing and selling flowers locally. Last year we launched Plow & Star Farm specializing in artisanal bouquets of zinnia, strawflowers, sunflowers, yarrow, rudbeckia, dahlias, cosmos, wildflowers and sprays inspired by the natural beauty of the landscape that surrounds us.
We sell our flora at at the Montour Falls Farmers Market and have our own roadside flower stand. Mostly we do this for fun but, like most things worth their while, it’s a whole lot of work.
People say dreaming allows us to prophesy the future. I’m not so sure, except in the case of wish fulfillment because ... wishes can and do come true.”
