Welcome to FARMHOUSE FLOWERS! A place for home-grown flowers, rustic design and stories of agriculture.

 

Dad has a small beef cow/calf operation and I developed a love for agriculture during my days down at the farm. I graduated from Iowa State University with a bachelor's degree in Agriculture Communications. My focus area was horticulture and animal science. After my first greenhouse class I was hooked! 

Tyler and I went to high school together and re-connected while I was interning back home. I had just began my blog, Picking Wild Flowers, when I saw a certain boy liked my post! I hadn't seen or heard from Tyler since my freshman year in high school. I was shocked that he would read my blog. I messaged him and this is where our love story begins...

Tyler proposed with my favorite cow Josie. She is the last cow from Grandpa's herd. We got married on October 20th, 2018. It was a very windy but BEAUTIFUL Iowa day! ​It was Tyler that really encouraged me to grow my own flowers! He saw a passion in me that I kept trying to ignore.

 

Our story is just beginning but the Ball family farm dates back to the early 1900s. Grandma Pat says I inherited my love for flowers from Great Grandma Ball. She always had a large garden and she cared for indoor flowers all winter long. The stories of the farm have been romanticized over the years, as I am sure it wasn't always roses and butterflies, but the stories bring me so much joy. The family farmhouse has a rich history and I hope Tyler and I can be part of the legacy.

 

My love for cut-flowers has grown slowly over the years. When we were little, Mom encouraged us to save flower petals from important occasions. She would help us write a little note before sticking them in the pages of our bible.

 

We recently welcomed our son, Dean Riggan Hibbs, into the world. He has brought such joy to our lives! I can already picture him running through our fields checking on the cows and harvesting flowers.

 

Flowers are truly little blessings. The gesture of a fresh bouquet brings us comfort in times of mourning and joy during times of celebration. We are thrilled to be working with you! It makes us so happy to share our locally grown flowers with you!

 

Be sure to take a look around and let me know if you have any questions!

 

Love,

Morgan
