Greenstone Fields

Greenstone Fields We grow specialty cut flowers using organic methods that nurture the soil.

Over 90 varieties of flowers thrive at Greenstone Fields, harvested to ensure optimum vase life. We are part of a growing movement to educate the public about fresh, local, naturally grown flowers that last. We sell our floraganic™ flowers at the Falls Church Farmers Market from April to November; provide bountiful bouquets as the flower share for two local vegetable farms' CSAs (Potomac Vegetable Farms and Willowsford Farm); and sell wholesale to local designers and florists.

Flashback 30 years. Ian is trying to figure out what is so bad with these cool looking tomato hornworms that his parents were removing; an early lesson that not all choices are black and white. As a little guy he had a passionate interest in nature and was never shy about taking on challenges. Adult Ian continues to enjoy nature and embrace challenges, whether rapids, Alaskan slopes, or pursuing justice for children. Happy 34th son.

I got this lovely bouquet from a week ago and it is still looking great! Julianne understands quality and the importance of vase life. Check her out at the Leesburg Market every Saturday.

Over the years, we had the opportunity to work with some very cool young people. Melissa started working with us in high school and returned for several years until she became a professional musician . Her prowess as a berry picker was second to none, understanding that the best berries are “fondled” not pulled. We had gobs of fun today harvesting blueberries and catching up on life.

Melissa and other great local musicians pay tribute to John Prine tonight at The Barns of Rose Hill in Berryville, VA at 7PM. We can all use a bit of beautifully written and performed Americana music in these sadly, challenging times.

Had to keep a few. Shout out to all the flower farmers who will be harvesting these beauties over the next few weeks. Peony season means not much else happens when you can harvest and process four or six times a day. But they sure are worth it! # peony

As part of my "retirement" I have the privilege of consulting with this fine group of 16 (and growing) flower farmers who make up the Old Dominion Flower Company. is a wholesale, cut flower hub serving DC, NOVA, Baltimore, and Frederick floral designers. Customers order flowers through an easy-to-use, on-line storefront and receive only one invoice, regardless of how many farms fill their order. ODFC’s collective power goes beyond convenience, including a commitment to the highest quality standards and sustainable growing practices. If you are local designer and are not already buying from ODFC, check them out. Link in Bio.

Gus decided to retire this season as well. He spent much of the year sitting on the golf cart rather than chasing mice and voles. Today he and Ruby are enjoying the last of the Greenstone arrangements. Happy holidays from the four of us. ❤️💐🐾

Here is Becca! This was Becca’s second season with us and she was our one, full-time crew member this year. To say she was my operational right hand person is an understatement. She was great at keeping me on track when there were too many things going on. One of my favorite Becca moments was her asking me…”Barb, does your brain have room for one more thing?”

Becca is passionate, focused, empathetic and amazingly organized. She absorbs details of harvesting; she made certain the flowers and buckets were well managed; and she handled the many moving parts of our market prep Fridays.Bottom line - Becca helped make this final season run smoothly…not sure we could have done it without her.

Becca plans to continue to work with flower farmers next season: and . She is sure to be a huge asset to Sage and Caroline! 😍💐🐾

Say hello to Caroline. We met her at Future Harvest where she was the Field School Manager. We were fortunate to have Caroline one day a week this past season; Becca and I looked forward, enthusiastically, to “Caroline Tuesdays”.

Caroline brought passion, specific flower knowledge and all around business smarts to daily operations and planning. Caroline has her own flower farm, . You can find her flowers next season at the Frederick City Farmers Market and both Common Market coops. Thanks, Caroline, for being a part of our last Greenstone team. 😍💐🐾

Another crew intro…Sage came to Greenstone last year while also starting here in Loudoun County. Sage has a great eye for designing flowers and a delightful attitude. They made most of the Greenstone CSA bouquets this year and contributed to many fun Fridays in the hub. Sage takes care to grow specialty cut flowers and is committed to using only sustainable floral design practices. You will see Sage’s flowers and bouquets at several places next season, like the farmers market, , and other retail and wholesale channels. If you are planning a wedding, event, or a celebration at home, reach out to Sage…you will be glad you did! 😍💐🐾

Alex was happy that we had warm enough temperatures last week to wash all the tuberose we dug up. Thanks to them we now have tubers for sale; direct message me if you are interested.

So let’s talk about Alex, who has been with Greenstone for three seasons. Alex started as a bucket washer, and quickly grew into being one of our best crew members. They love to w**d (💕), can easily pivot when priorities change, and is great at interpreting the “Babz speak” that sometimes happens when too many things are going on at once. I’m certain that someday I will say about Alex…I knew them when. 😍💐🐾

Tuber digging is going great! Lots of folks are getting dahlias, peonies and tuberose tubers. We’ve had farmers come from as far as Georgia! We opened up additional slots for this Saturday and into next week. See the link in bio for details and to sign up for a time to come dig with us. You can also get Salvia plants to hold for cuttings next Spring. It’s wonderful knowing that parts of Greenstone will flower on! 😍💐🐾

We had a special visitor this week …. every flower farmer’s best friend, . I met Dave at my first conference 14 years ago. Right away he started giving advice about flowers I must grow…I pulled out my cocktail napkin and tried my best to capture his suggestions (he does talk kinda fast!). That napkin morphed into many pages of flower knowledge, or Davisms. When talking with other growers, we often say, or hear….”Dave says…”, or “What would Dave say, lets ask him.” I am one of an innumerable number of growers who have benefited from Dave’s wisdom, caring, and patience (I may win the award for asking the most questions of him). Dave taught me the value of selling only high quality flowers and shared many great ideas on how to market them. I will maintain a small cutting garden in my retirement, in part, as a tribute to all that Dave has taught me. Thank you Dave! 😍💐🐾

We are selling dahlia and peony tubers - you dig. The digging process is fast and there are plenty of individual tubers in each clump. They are big and gorgeous! Caroline can barely lift that peony clump. Peonies, many of them 16 years old, are $20. The dahlias, most of which were overwintered, are $15. We are opening the farm through November 11, for folks to purchase. Send us an email, and we will get you the details on how to make an appointment to get a piece of Greenstone. Link in bio to our website. And yes, I’m keeping a few. 😍💐🐾

We had the pleasure of hosting a birthday gathering for 4 long-time friends. We showed everyone the end of season flowers, as our last farm tour, and set up the Greenstone Flower Bar. Bouquet making was a hoot and revealed much creative prowess. This photo represents lots of history, love and community. ❤️💐🐾

We are swimming in dahlias! We will have plenty at both the farmers market from 11-1 AND the Lovettsville Co-op Groundbreaking Celebration and Fall Market from noon to 3 at the Lovettsville Town Commons. There are plenty of great vendors at both locations. See you there!

Today was our last Friday in the hub. We have had over 500 market prep days over the past 16 years. In the old days, before the hub, we did this under a 10x20 pop-up. Many great crew members have worked hard harvesting innumerable stems, and some amazing designers have created many wonderful bouquets. It will take some time for it to settle in that Friday’s in the hub are done. Fortunately, we still have many flowers (can you say dahlia) to cut, and bouquets to make, for our friends at Potomac Vegetable Farms.

This week we are not at market , but our friend and wonderful farmer, Caroline will be there. We will be back next weekend.

We are long-time supporters of local food co-ops. Luckily for Loudoun County, a new co-op is coming to Lovettsville. It is exciting to see the movement of community supported, local, fresh food coming to town.

As part of the Lovettsville Co-op membership drive, we are offering a fall flower share for the winner of a random drawing from new member sign ups by August 27. The winner will get 4 weeks of a beautiful bouquet that you pick up at our farm on Saturdays starting September 11. Please consider becoming a member to help this important effort.

Details and eligibility requirements are on the Co-op website: www.lovettsville-grocery.com/join-us.
