Our philosophy

Our Philosophy

We consider ourselves to be a idealists; not the present day definition that big business types use alongside synonyms like impractical and unrealistic, but the more romantic, philosopher definition that says we believe in certain things and act in certain ways to make a better life, a better place to live, and a better life for our family, that we have a roll to play in leaving the planet a better place than we arrived.  

So, if you really want to “know” us, here is what we think is important:

Grow. Nourish. Inspire.

It’s more than our mantra, or a line written at the top of the white board in our office. We truly believe these three elements are what we need to live by to make a difference in the world.  

In 2005 when Heidi started making plans for what is now Stems Flower Farm, it’s genesis was as much to a lifestyle change as it was to a business plan.  Heidi’s dream was to embrace a simpler life.  One that was more natural, more self-sufficient, and in keeping with her family's traditions of growing food when you can, sewing instead of buying, and minimizing the electronic trappings of the current times.  

Farmers today balance environmental, economic, and social considerations almost everyday. Our mission is to move forward respecting all three elements in every aspect of our business.  We hope you come along for the journey too.
