Not Just a Flower Farm

Looking at these gorgeous protea bouquets we make each day, it’s easy to forget some of the other aspects that make up our “farm life” here in Rainbow. Yes, we’re not just a flower farm! We enjoy tending to our vegetable garden, which now is producing some very flavorful zucchini, cucumbers and tomatoes. It’s wonderful watching these plants grow, flower and slowly produce fruit and vegetables.

Both the zucchini and cucumber plants start by producing delicate blooms the color of sunshine and slowly transform their blooms into farm fresh produce – nothing tastes better!

Chickens and Roosters have been roaming our farm for years eating all the unwanted bugs and insects. Recently, we decided to create a chicken coop where the hens could go and lay their eggs. It seems to be working well for them and for us too, since now we get to enjoy fresh eggs daily.

Even our favorite rooster, Arlan, approves of the new hen house!

These days it’s all about  being “Farm-Fresh” for the table!
