The Farm Girls

We grew up on a farm in Little Compton, RI, working since we could remember. What started as a 180 acre farm grew to 300+ acres for our parents to tend to, working was required. Whether it was a 5am wake up for picking and packing corn or greeting customers as they stopped in to buy vegetables and flowers at the roadside stand, we learned at a young age what it meant to be part of a family business. 

As the grew so did our responsibilities. With the farm having both the wholesale and retail operations, we spent the majority of our time working on the retail side.

When I was younger I always wanted to be a business owner. I saw the importance of supporting local growers and knew that would stay with me forever. Growing up on a farm, you see first hand how hard it is to be in agriculture, it's not just a little hobby in the backyard. It's hundreds of acres of produce and flowers that will feed and house your family. Your entire livelihood is dependent on Mother Nature, you never know what the season is going to bring, let alone the next year. 

During my last year at Boston University, I lived with my sister Hattie and another roommate in Allston. If you're familiar with Allston, you know how little space you typically get. Now imaging that apartment being filled with flowers from the kitchen to the living room.
