Maybelle Flower Farm is a dream to cultivate something beautiful, and to share it with others.
Maybelle Flower Farm is a 1 acre cut flower garden of specialty blooms available for special orders, events, wholesale to local florists, restaurant subscriptions and retail within small businesses, and available for purchase by bouquet at our farm stand.
Why Maybelle, why flowers?…
May expresses possibility, and belle is beauty.
My Great Grandmother's name was Maybelle, and some of my earliest memories in life are times spent in her Chicago flower shop.
I didn't always acknowledge my innate passion for flowers. There was a time in my life when I claimed I didn't enjoy them because all they do is die. At that time, I just didn't understand or appreciate their representation of life. It wasn't until I lost a best friend in April 2016, that my latent desire of admiring flowers emerged when planting some forget-me-nots around a baby tree in her dad's backyard. During one of the saddest moments of my life, planting those pretty little flowers into the ground represented the love I had for my friend, the appreciation I have for knowing her, the joy in the memories that will last forever, and the encouragement that there will be a tomorrow.
Since then, I've been drawn to flowers more than ever. I love to look at them, arrange them, smell them, give them, receive them, and now, grow them.
The best part of this new farming adventure is looking up and seeing my family working on the land, that we worked so hard for. We believe Heaven on Earth is a choice, not a place, and we trust in God and his continued direction to cultivate a little bit of Heaven while we are here on Earth, and we can't wait to share it with you.
