How it all began – The Story of Tapestry Flower Farms
Tapestry Flower Farms is a woman owned and operated farm on 15 acres of rolling fields on the Cumberland Plateau in Oneida Tennessee.
I’ve lived in Oneida for over 20 years, most recently with my Collie Maggie who’s been my companion, hiking buddy and eager assistant.
My home is adjacent to the awe-inspiring Big South National River and Recreation Area, a place not only near to me but also very dear to me. Many fond trail riding memories and epic hiking adventures have taken place in this special park.
In the fall of 2020 I found new homes for my senior horses which prompted me to make a choice of whether to downsize or keep my farm. I was in a prime location on a primo piece of ground with a deep desire to stay active, especially outdoors so I took time to reflect on how to build my future.
In the winter of 2020 while enjoying my morning coffee I gazed at a fresh bouquet of flowers on my kitchen table. I began to wonder whether growing cut flowers could be an amazing way to spend my time while utilizing the fertile soil on my farm. One thing led to another until in the Spring of 2021 I’d cultivated a hobby sized flower farm. Realizing I needed a name for this venture I gazed at the blooms in my flower beds, admiring the variety of colors and textures. An image of a tapestry patterned with vibrant colors was blanketed before me.
Thus Tapestry Flower Farm was born.
The local reception to my flowers in 2021 was quite encouraging! So much so that the demand outweighed the supply.
In the fall of 2021 when the growing season was winding down, I went back to the drawing board to reassess my resources and goals. My desire is to expand my flower garden while continuing to find joy in my new vocation. I’ll always be inspired and excited by the flowers, at the same time there’s an ebb and flow between my ‘blossoming’ excitement and keeping my ballast.
The Spring of 2022 was busy and exciting. Returning were some favorite blooms from 2021 and an expansion to new varieties, especially more annuals.
2023 will be my second year as a flower farmer and the process of cultivating my garden unfolds with each new season. One of the most inspiring parts of flower farming is my continuing education and growth of knowledge focusing especially on a serious commitment to stewardship for the land.
My aim is to share the beauty, bounty and endless variety of flowers on my farm with people far and wide, bringing happiness and uplifting feelings to those who enjoy and appreciate the natural beauty of flowers.
