Remaining hopeful and optimistic as we begin relocating our flower farm.
“Embrace uncertainty. Some of the most beautiful chapters in our lives won’t have a title until much later.”– Bob Goff
A week has now passed since I first received the news about our flower farm. Imagine receiving a letter telling you that the place where you’ve poured your heart and soul into won’t be your canvas next year. It’s been a wild ride, feeling like someone pressed the “change-everything” button.
Relocating Our Flower Farm
Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances we found out on Monday, November 20th, 2023 that our lease for our flower farm will not be renewed for next year. We’ve been given until February 29, 2024 to deconstruct our flower farm, relocate, and return the field to its original state. While we’re devastated by the news, we’re also eternally grateful for the opportunity we’ve had to grow in the field for the past 3 years.
This flower farm is just rows of flowers; it’s been our haven. Three years of nurturing these blooms and suddenly, we’re faced with a fork in the road. But you know what? I believe that life’s unexpected turns often lead to surprising adventures.
The future is still a bit of a puzzle right now. But in this whirlwind of change, I’m holding onto hope like it’s my lifeline. Flower farming has taught me that even in the face of uncertainty, hope blooms brightest.
Sharing This News Of Change With Our Flower Community
Sharing this news isn’t easy, but you’re more than followers; you’re part of this beautiful, blossoming journey. Your support has been like water for our garden – essential and nurturing. I wanted you to know about our current situation, because your encouragement means the world to us.
As we navigate this new chapter, I’m gathering your positivity and using it as fuel for the road ahead. Your belief in our journey has been the driving force behind our growth.
Let’s walk this path together, finding new adventures, and planting seeds of hope. Your support has been our foundation, and I’m beyond grateful for each and every one of you. Together, let’s turn this change into something beautiful.
I’m going to do my best to keep a running journal on our website to share the process as we work diligently to unearth our flower farm and return the field to its original state.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for being a part of this journey. This is not the end, just a mere bend in the road.
With sincere gratitude,
Jennifer | Founder and Farmer at The Flowering Farmhouse
