Read on for more about the dear friends behind Kelley Flower Farm.
"Kelley Flower Farm began in 2015 with two friends, Kelley Bowman and Sharon Kelley, who wanted to grow dahlias and share their beautiful flowers with others. We planted our first dahlia tubers in March 2015 on the farm in Modesto, California. We counted each sprout as they burst through the soil. We picked our first blooms in June 2015 and prepared to sell our flowers at Modesto certified farmers market. Each year our farm has seemed to grow and stretch us in ways we didn't know possible. In 2016 we planted our first peony patch. In 2017 we moved our dahlia area into new ground and planted 600 dahlias. In 2018, we leased additional ground and added a hoop house. In 2019, we added growing ranunculus in a hoop house, which greatly boosted our early spring flowers. In 2020 we utilized our small farm to grow the most flowers possible in our two acres space. Today we have flowers from mid February until Thanksgiving. In our nine seasons of growing flowers, our farm has transformed into what it is today. Our motto today is still growing and sharing beautiful flowers from our farm. Currently, we sell flowers directly from our farm at our self serve farm stand and have a booth at Modesto certified farmers market. We also offer arrangements direct to our customers through our website, kelleyflowerfarm.com."
