Fresh Local Flowers
A Love For Growing
Our love for growing started when our kids were little. We started growing a few vegetables in a garden box we made in the tiny backyard of our first Colorado home. Their excitement every time we harvested vegetables or planted seeds was contagious, so every year the garden got bigger and we added new things. Now that our kids are older, we're able to grow a lot more with the help of a lot of hands! Stacey's recent urge to tap into her creative-artistic side, to connect more with the natural world, and to carry on her late Grandpa's love for growing dahlias, led her to enroll in the Floret Online Workshop where she learned how to start a small-scale flower farm. We've added a flower field, a peony field, a shade garden, many perennial beds, and a pumpkin patch to our growing mix. We've been able to grow thousands of flowers to share with our community! Our flowers are available through our subscriptions, for purchase from our roadside flower stand (a.k.a. The Flower House), by the bucket, or by special order. We also supply flowers to local businesses and restaurants.
Our flowers are grown as organically as possible. We never use harsh chemicals, fertilizers, or pesticides, and we strive to use only organic products. We compost all our food scraps, garden debris, leaves, and chicken waste and use them as food for the flower field and gardens. We care deeply about our health, your health, and the health of our beautiful planet, and we hope to have an impact on making it a better, healthier, and more beautiful place!
At Slupik MiniFarm we grow flowers that are unique and impressively beautiful. We strive to find varieties and colors that are special and elegantly stunning. Because we sell our flowers locally, we are able to grow flowers and varieties you won't find elsewhere.
In spring, you can expect loads of unique specialty double and peony-style tulips, fragrant narcissus and hyacinths, elegant Hellebores, stunning ranunculus and anemones, giant delphinium and alliums.
Summer brings armfuls of peonies, colorful snapdragons and poppies, eye-catching Bells of Ireland, giant sunflowers and zinnias, papery strawflowers, cottage garden cosmos, and vibrant pincushion scabiosa.
Late summer and into fall is when our favorite and largest crop, the dahlias, comes into full bloom. We grow hundreds of varieties in every shape, size and color, and we are excited to constantly add and try new varieties of these crowd-pleasers. Fall also brings a lot of textural beauty into the mix - eucalyptus, cardinal basil, stonecrop, hyssop, grasses, and other beautiful things we can also dry to make the season last a little longer.
Our flowers are all field grown, so our season is in the hands of the Mother Nature. Spring flowers typically start early April, and they end in the fall once we get our first frost, usually early October.
Our Spring Subscription starts in mid-late April and runs for six weeks. Spring flowers include many varieties of unique specialty double and peony-style tulips, hyacinth, alliums, anemone, and more.
The Fall Subscription is filled with many beautiful varieties of dahlias, and also includes zinnias, strawflowers, cosmos, eucalyptus, and more. The Fall Subscription starts at the beginning of August and runs for eight weeks.
Spring and fall flowers subscriptions come arranged in a glass vase for you to pick up and enjoy.
The Peony Subscription runs for four weeks in June and includes a wrapped bouquet of assorted peonies harvested fresh from our peony field each week.
Flower subscriptions are picked up at the farm in Niwot on Mondays from 4:00 to 6:00. Click here to get more information and to enroll in a flower subscription today!

Buckets of Flowers
We also offer buckets of assorted flowers for those who wish to do their own arranging!
Mixed buckets contain an assortment of flower varieties, sizes, and colors, depending on what's blooming at the time. Mixed buckets are available May thru September. We also offer dahlia buckets in August & September.
All of our flowers are field-grown, so we can only offer what's in season at the time you pick up your bucket!
If you require specific colors or flower types, we require at least a week's notice so that we can harvest accordingly.
Click here to order your flower bucket through our online store. (Buckets are only available for purchase during flower season.)
*If you return your bucket for us to re-use, we will trade you for a small bouquet of flowers!

To maximize the life of your cut flowers, follow these simple guidelines:
Provide them with clean water daily or every other day.
Remove any leaves that are below the surface of the water to keep the water clean.
Occasionally snip off their ends to allow them to continue drinking. Cutting the stems at an angle will help them to absorb water better.
Display them in a cool place out of direct sunlight to keep them from wilting.
Keep them away from ripening fruit, as the ethylene gas emitted from ripening fruit can be detrimental to some flowers.
Remove dead or wilting leaves and stems to keep the rest of the bouquet fresh.
Put them in a place where you see them often to maximize enjoyment!
