Amidst rolling hills and large evergreens that grace the edges of our fields, our flowers put on a stunning display. Thousands of dahlias drink up the late summer sun and are harvested at their peak. We enjoy growing peonies, tulips, Ranunculus, sunflowers, zinnias, and a large variety of heirloom and specialty cut flowers. Set in Williamstown, NY, we offer the freshest and best of the season’s blooms to our community.
Our shop features CSA bouquet subscriptions, dahlia tubers, and information about U Pick and farm events.
We're Miles and Katherine Lewis, owners of Petals in Bloom Flower Farm along with our 4 kids, Jane, Anna, Eli and Henry. While we both grew up having some experience helping with a small family garden here or there, and I enjoyed dabbling in growing flowers in our garden, Miles and I would never have guessed we'd someday call ourselves farmers.
In 2017 we were blessed to be given a piece of my family's horse farm and dreamed of how we'd make use of the land. We decided to raise our 4 kids here, on a farm where they could pick ripe berries for snacking in the summertime on their way down to the pond to look for frogs or build forts, or take a walk through the woods to Grandma and Grandpa's house.
About the same time, my growing interest in flowers was taking off. Wanting to learn everything I could and explore the possibility of one day starting a flower farm of my own, I signed up for Floret's Workshop and began to learn from everyone I could. My daughter Jane took the course right along with me and on the cusp of our new venture, we started to dream and plan together what we'd plant the following year. She thought of the name “Petals in Bloom” for our little patch of colorful zinnias that first summer. And we were hooked.
Our kids love to help and we try and include them whenever we can... that's the beauty of a family farm! We use organic and sustainable farming practices as it's important to us to protect the health and well being of not only our own children but also of anyone working on our farm and ultimately, our customers and community!
Anna's favorite part of flower farming is putting the fairy dust (aka bone meal) in each hole we plant in. Jane really enjoys cutting the flowers and making bouquets (along with making sure everyone is doing everything by the book). Eli likes helping “the guys”, and I'm sure Henry will have a favorite "job" when he gets old enough to help.
There's nothing better than driving the side by side around our flower fields at the end of the day to see our work or spot buds seemingly ready to burst into bloom with excitement themselves. They all tell a story, and testify to the love and care that go into the flowers here at Petals in Bloom.
Flowers have an amazing impact on everyone who comes in contact with them. They brighten up your day, bring you closer to nature, and just seem to do something good for your soul. And by sharing our flowers, that's the experience we want to share with you.
