Fresh Cut 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, eager for them to get their hands in the dirt and gain an appreciation for where their food comes from. Their excitement every time we harvested vegetables or planted seeds was contagious, so every year the garden got bigger and we continually 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! We've mostly grown vegetables until now, but Stacey's recent urge to connect with 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 recently added a flower field 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, by the bucket, or by special request.
Our flowers, and everything else we grow, are grown as organically as possible. We never use harsh chemicals, fertilizers, or pesticides and strive to use only organic products. We compost all our food scraps, garden debris, 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 strive to grow flowers that are unique, unlike those you'll find at the grocery store. In spring, you can expect loads of unique specialty double and peony-style tulips, narcissus, hyacinths, stunning ranunculus and anemones, and giant purple alliums.
Summer brings colorful snapdragons and poppies, giant sunflowers and zinnias, strawflowers, cosmos, and pincushion scabiosa. Soon we will also be offering peonies by the armful!
Late summer and into fall is when our favorite and largest crop, the dahlias, come into full bloom. We grow hundreds of varieties in every shape, size and color, and we are excited to be constantly adding and trying new varieties of these crowd-pleasers. This time of year also brings some of our textural and fragrant favorites, eucalyptus and cardinal basil.
Our flowers are all field grown, so we are at the mercy of the weather. Spring flowers start once Mother Nature decides, typically late April, and they end in the fall once we get our first frost, typically early October.
Our Spring Subscription starts in late April or early May, depending on Mother Nature, and runs for six weeks. Spring flowers include many varieties of unique specialty tulips, alliums, anemone, ranunculus, 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.
Flowers come arranged in a glass vase for you to pick up and enjoy.
Flower subscriptions are picked up at the farm in Niwot on Mondays from 4:00 to 6:00.

The Flower House
Stop by and visit our self-serve flower stand, also known as The Flower House! From spring through fall, we have flowers, eggs, plant starts, and sometimes veggies, out for purchase at the corner of our property. We also have handmade cards and other artwork, perfect for pairing with flowers as a gift for someone special!
The Flower House is located at the corner of Niwot Road and Redwing Place (just east of 63rd) in Niwot, CO. It's open most Fridays and Saturdays from 10 to 6, from April through September. Look for our sign out on Niwot Road. Sometimes we're open on irregular days for holidays or when we have extra flowers.

Buckets of Flowers
We also offer buckets of flowers for those looking to do their own arranging!
Mixed buckets contain an assortment of flower varieties and colors, depending on what's blooming at the time. Mixed buckets are $75 each, include approximately 60-70 stems, and are available May thru 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!
We also offer dahlia buckets during the months of August and September. Dahlia buckets are $50 and contain approximately 25 dahlia stems in assorted sizes and colors.
If you require specific colors or flower types, we require at least two 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.)
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!
