Meet your farmers: Carly and Joseph

Aromatic Acres at the TOSA Farmers Market

The universe brought us together in spring 2012 while harvesting petals for dandelion wine. We spent that sunny May afternoon giggling over homemade wine and sharing our future homesteading dreams with each other. Over the years we continued dreaming and planning our future. We got married in 2015 and began developing goals. Goals turned into plans and those plans became our purpose.

 

Each of our life's stepping stones forged a path, which eventually collided and lead us towards growing cut flowers. I (Carly) have a background in fine arts, conservation, horticulture, and plenty of professional experience sitting at a desk assisting executives.  Joseph has a background in music, mathematics, finance, and viticulture. He has owned and operated his own audio visual production company for over 10 years.

 

When not farming or working 9-5 off the farm we can be found planning our next adventure abroad, cooking meals together, slowly fixing up our classic Milwaukee Cape Cod, catching some live music or traveling to the place that holds our hearts - Door County.

 

My favorite flower changes on an almost weekly basis throughout the season. It is usually whichever beauty is in peak bloom. Joe's favorite flower is anything that serves a dual purpose: beautiful and edible.
