Reverie Flower Farm

Reverie Flower Farm "Where daydreams of vintage and modern intertwine."

Welcome to our newest endeavor...WE BOUGHT A FARM! Our recent move to the Kansas City area led us to pursue a dream of owning a farm, so we bought almost 12 acres of crops in Bucyrus, Kansas, just 18 miles South of Leawood, Kansas and close to the State Line. Join us on our journey as we use this page to post our trials and tribulations of owning land. From working with an architect, to picking a builder, to getting all utilities to the property, to developing a cut floral farm business and more!

Our 12 acres is thriving finally with native plants and cover crops that were planted end of last year via a seed drill. Since taking ownership we have not conventionally farmed the land by not spraying pesticides or herbicides. We wanted to heal the soil and bring the biology into and the wildlife above the soil back. If weather ever cooperates, we will be planting about 10 acres of black oil seed sunflowers 🌻 for production. Hopefully we will be able to cold press some seeds for sunflower oil, some dried heads will be used for natural bird feeders, some will be used for cut flower bunches, and some for animal feed. We will also be planting hundreds of pumpkins 🎃 in multiple varieties. 🤞

My Mother’s Day gift today was to move our 5 week old chicks out of the apartment and to the farm. It felt good to get our living room back, but we actually miss hearing them chirping and playing. Can’t wait to get them set up in a good spot in the field once this deluge subsides. I’m so over the rain and slop at our farm. @ Bucyrus, Kansas

Excited and disappointed all at the same time about the big bags of coffee grounds that @starbucks offers for free at some of their locations. The grounds are great for my compost piles, but why aren’t they in a compostable package? I don’t think the bag they are in is even recyclable. So torn. I love using the grounds, but hate throwing the bags in the trash. 🥺

A little progress over the weekend. Winds are a battle we are learning to win and we keep trying new techniques to find good solutions. We covered one planting area with silage tarp so the warmer temps during the day will help kill most of the weeds in a week or two. Then we can start getting some seeds in the ground.

Progress. Finally. A sunny and calm day made it the perfect day to get one of our 80’ x 14’ caterpillar tunnel up. I’m so excited to get transplants in there with some direct seeding too. I think it was the luck O’ the Irish that was behind the progress today. My maiden name is Colleen Sullivan McCoole. The Irish luck is ingrained in my soul. ☘️ @ Bucyrus, Kansas

I spy a real, live mini-pineapple stem in these arrangements. 🍍 I love using Florasource KC for my stems when it’s not the season for our flower farm stems. When I was asked to do the flowers for Layla’s father-daughter dance last night I couldn’t resist going a little overboard. There were 12 small vases for the guest tables and 1 large vase for the punch and treat table.

Yesterday, the warmer weather had us at the farm just hanging out and enjoying the view. My little helper came around the corner and said, “Ma’am, I’m here to get working on fixing things. Can you point me in the direction of what you need fixed first?” She’s a funny one. I love how much she loves being at our farm even though there’s not much to it yet.

She’s baaack...and we’ll be moving back in full time in a couple months (or as soon as we get the temp electric installed at the farm).

Finally picked Betsy up yesterday from the dealership where she had been getting a warranty overhaul for about 3 months. Glad to have her nestled back in her spot. @ Bucyrus, Kansas

So, toying with offering a flower bar as a pop-up for Valentine’s Day. IF we were to find a space to do it in, would that be something you would like? Do you prefer to buy a pre-made bunch or would you prefer to choose your stems from a bar and pick your own custom bunch? I would love your input on this idea!

My delivery helper and I decided to surprise some friends with free bouquets so they didn’t go to waste. We were so lucky to land initially in a great spot in KC @parkplaceleawood and became friends with our neighbors @pinkantlersstudio and @handandland. We hope you enjoyed your bright flowers during this dreary day! Thank you for your friendships...😊 PS: Layla’s hat is from @tinysuperheroes and if you don’t know about this charity, check them out!
