Wildrye Farm is owned and primarily farmed by Miranda Bowman. What started as a love of weeding turned into a incredible farming career. Each day I get to work the land and follow the seasons.
This journey began for me by taking some farm classes through my local extension office. That lead me to an internship with Cloud Mountain Farm.
I am a mother, wife, and constant dreamer. I love that flowers bring us together. Sharing the beauty of the natural world is an incredible gift. I am humbled and grateful to be able to work with plants and flowers nearly every day.
Our farm began in 2015 at the Cloud Mountain incubator farm. Vegetables were our beginning but the blooms slowly took over. The home farm is a 1/2 acre urban farm located in the Birchwood neighborhood of Bellingham, Washington. We grow our flowers sustainably by following organic growing practices. We sow our seeds with a mindfulness of the natural world around us. It's important to honor the natural rhythms around us and we try to honor the local flora, fauna, critters and creatures as much as possible. We believe in leaving the land better than we found it. Our practices include using compost, cover crops, practicing crop rotation, and using biological pest controls. We don't use synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, or synthetic insecticides.
We sell our flowers to wholesalers, designers, florists, pop ups, CSA customers, and through farmer's markets. We love growing fresh, responsibly grown flowers for our commuity.
