At Blossom and Branch Farm, we want everyone to feel more connected with the earth from the moment they cross through our gate, step on our soil, and experience our incredible Colorado fresh flowers.
Whether you are joining us for a class on the farm, picking up wedding flowers for your special event, attending a you-pick (sign up for our email list below for notifications on dates), we want you to feel like family when you visit our farm.
Welcome to how flowers should be.
As a regenerative flower farm, sustainability isn't just a marketing phrase for us. It is the ethos that drives every decision we make at the farm. We focus on regenerating the soil and ecosystem at our farm for native wildlife and pollinators.
As part of our regenerative focus, our farm operates 100% seasonally and produces field-grown flowers (we don't utilize artificial light or heat to produce flowers, which add to carbon emissions). We have converted to solar energy for our operations and cooler to minimize fossil fuel reliance.
Our farm operates on a closed loop: weeds and scraps go to our chickens and sheep, who turn them into fertilizer, which we compost with our scrap flowers to apply back to our field. We focus on plastic reduction through our use of soil blocking rather than using plastic seed trays, no plastic wrapping on our flowers, and 100% compostable bouquet wraps. We focus on regenerative gardening practices, incorporating cover crops, pocket prairies, and holistic animal grazing to produce healthy soil and beautiful flowers.
Our farm operates under a permanent no-till system, helping keep atmospheric carbon that has been sequestered by plant roots in the soil. By increasing soil and microbe life, roots are better able to pull climate-effecting carbon down from the atmosphere through photosynthesis and store it in the soil. We don't use any synthetic fertilizers, chemicals, or herbicides to protect our soil life and prevent runoff of excess nutrients.
Instead, we focus on the use of cover crops and natural mulches to provide soil nutrition and weed prevention.
We also return our profits to our land, and have planted over 65 trees to date to help sequester carbon and increase transpiration. We also have focused on planting much of our flower field with native flowers, eliminating invasive plants, and incorporating pocket prairies throughout the property to foster local habitat for birds and insects.
"Even if the idea of saving the planet by not having to ship flowers from a different country doesn't appeal to you, the idea that these flowers are more fresh than anything else you can buy, which means they'll last longer should convince you."
"The webinar and Garden plan were very informative and taught in an organized fashion that made it easy to follow along! The growers choice bouquet was beautiful! It brought so much joy to our house and lasted a week. I can’t wait to take more classes here!"
"The team at Blossom & Branch got the order ready and delivered within a few hours, the blooms were stunning and really unique and beautiful florals. Would recommend to ANYONE looking to support an awesome and local CO vendor!"
