Snuck Farm has announced a new program, The Flower Collective, aimed at supporting flower farmers and backyard flower enthusiasts by growing region-specific flower plugs and providing education and supplies for cut flower growers. Fawn Rueckert, of Sego Lily Flower Farm, joined the Snuck Farm team in August to serve as Director of the program.
The Flower Collective will supply the intermountain region with plugs for both flower farmers and backyard enthusiasts. They will specialize in cut-flowers that grow well in the region and are bred for beauty, instead of for travel. They will also be a resource for education and supplies to help growers have productive growing seasons.
In addition to growing plugs, Snuck Farm will be dedicating part of their greenhouses to the cultivation of specialty cut-flowers and extending the season for locally grown blooms in Utah. They will also be taking part in research focused on greenhouse grown cut-flower varieties.
Fawn Rueckert, of Sego Lily Flower Farm, has joined the team at Snuck Farm as Director of The Flower Collective. She brings with her years of experience running all aspects of her own successful flower farm and is a founding member on the board of the Utah Cut flower Farmers Association. “We couldn’t be more excited to have Fawn on our team to lead this program and our collective efforts to expand the local flower movement in our region”, says Page Westover, owner of Snuck Farm. “We firmly believe that as we support the local flower movement, we are contributing to a more sustainable community, all while benefiting our local economy by supporting small-businesses, many of them women-owned.”
Plans are already set for the 2021-22 growing season and pre-orders will open for flower farmers on November 1st.
