greetings from nova scotia!
After farming 2.5 acres of cut-flowers and dahlias near Nelson, BC for many years, we relocated to Granville Ferry, Nova Scotia in December of 2021! Now we're heading into our 9th season and are so happy to make our home here and grow our new farm.
welcome to stone meadow gardens
Many of you might remember us from our beloved Kootenay farm-stand where we sold armloads of gorgeous cut-flowers and our signature, seasonally inspired bouquets.
For the 2022 season we focused exclusively on growing our dahlias while we got our feet under ourselves. We took some time to learn about the climate here, work on our soil and trial some of our favorite annual cuts. We're really looking forward to growing a full range of cut flowers again in 2023!
our commitment to the land
We have a firm commitment to caring for the land and the community of plants, animals and people that are all connected to it.
We believe that to grow beautiful, healthy plants you must create a healthy, thriving environment for them to flourish. Starting with a program to nourish and and nurture the soil, we use simple organic and regenerative techniques to build a healthy foundation for our plants for our plants to thrive.
starting from the ground up
In addition to only using nature-based fertilizers and soil amendments, another way we care for the soil is by using cover crops whenever we don't have a "crop" in the ground. Here you can see Carl admiring his late summer planting of oats, peas, tillage radish and clover that will nurture and protect the soil and its underground ecosystem.
come back soon!
