Hello and welcome to The Flower Stand. We’re a rural u-pick flower farm and full service floral design studio. We’re dedicated to creating a family friendly and beautifully colorful environment using our farm fresh American grown local flowers.
Back in 2007 I formed The Home Staging Source, one of the first companies in WNY to offer real estate staging services. Around that time, I moved back to our century old family farm, operating as an active vegetable farm. A bonus to farm life was the ability to grow unique cut flowers in nutrient rich soil for myself and staged properties. I started putting out buckets of surplus flowers at our roadside vegetable stand… mostly gladiolus, zinnias and sunflowers.
My flowers were selling out and orders were coming in. My spring seed order became more intentional. I studied floral industry trends, learned what thrived in our climate, on our farm and became a Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardener. A national call for AMERICAN GROWN flowers was growing.
I started to get requests for showers and weddings. Eventually I decided to open my field to allow people to pick what they liked. The visceral reaction to the field was stunning. It’s a happy place. In 2015 my business certificate was amended to Ellen K Design, allowing me to pursue flower farming while continuing staging. My 200′ of flowers has become roughly one acre of public u-pick flowers, the only one around. The 2019 the garden will be just short of two acres and have over 150+ varieties of flowers and a weekly CSA (community supported agriculture) flower subscription service.
During the off season I continue to offer real estate staging services through our sister company, The Home Staging Source, where I prepare homes for sale and offer design services for the Western New York area.
I look forward to meeting you either at the farm or in your home.
