Wildrye Farm is owned and primarily farmed by Miranda Bowman. What started as a love of weeding blossomed into a small urban flower farm.
I absolutely love growing flowers. I am an optimist, dreamer and adore living in the Pacific Northwest. If I am not outside working with plants you can find me hiking with my family or camping somewhere in the mountains.
I love sharing flowers with my community. Bringing the natural world indoors and sharing the beauty of flowers is truly a gift. I hope that in time I can educate more and more people on the importance of locally grown flowers and the impact of growing flowers responsibly.
Our farm began in 2015 at the Cloud Mountain incubator farm. Vegetables were our beginning but the blooms soon took over.
Our 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, through pop up sales, and and a seasonal farmer's market. We love what we do and hope you will too!
