"Now that I’ve been farming for so many years, my personal style and work style are one in the same. I’d describe it as classic and practical with preppy roots. I gravitate towards high-waisted pants or shorts, shirtdresses, oxford shirts, wool sweaters, and rubber boots. I love my shirt tucked in or some sort of definition of my waist, which makes me feel more put-together and comfortable. I gravitate towards natural materials like cotton and wool with plenty of color and fun prints.

A day that I forget to put on my pearl earrings is an off day. I wear rubber boots almost every day and polarized sunglasses are a must. And, my little leather holster for my clippers is always on my waist. I’m likely to wear a dress when not working and can throw a sweater over it, add boots, and step back to work in a flash.

We are experimenting all the time with what grows well in our little corner of the world. A crop we grow one year won’t be exactly the same the next year, so it’s constant change and trialing, but I adore that. This time of year, we are busy with filling wholesale orders and design work, plus getting ready for next spring. Look for our Thanksgiving Centerpiece Workshop this month and our third annual Foraged Wreath Workshop in early December.

I find that the East Bay/farmcoast has an ideal blend of country and city, and I’m always aiming to take a bit more time year-round – even when it’s hectic with the flowers – to appreciate that. I love visiting Blithewold, Cove Cabin at Mount Hope Farm, and C & R Mercantile, all in Bristol. I’m a huge fan of food. I always make time to visit Bywater in Warren and The Red Dory in Tiverton."
