We are excited to be partnering with Wasatch Blooms to provide you with fresh cut local flowers each week.

The Slow Flower Farm grows flowers to be sustainable, to support local ecosystems and regenerate the soil. Heather grows intensively on an urban lot and mixing market gardening with permaculture ethics. So when you pick up your bouquet you smell the flowers and breeze and the bumble bee, and you know you can breathe them in deeply. We are so excited to support this local farmer and provide you with flowers from July 10th - September 25th. The cost is just $180 to receive a mixed market bouquet of flowers will be delivered with your CSA.
