Sarah Monteiro grew up in a small coastal town on Long Island with an endless ocean, but with limited land and very few farms. The closest she came to agriculture was in her grandmother’s garden, or exploring cranberry bogs and picking wild blueberries. She was introduced to farming about 9 years ago and has have been weeding carrots, thinning beets, making flower bouquets and packing CSA boxes ever since.
But this year she took a big step!
She moved to just outside of Sharon Springs, NY, to start her new farm, and we are so thrilled not only to have this great new neighbor but also to offer her fresh bouquets each weekend in the flagship Mercantile on Main Street.
Farmhand Flowers is situated on 11 acres on a farm tucked in the hills between the Catskills and Adirondacks. Although Farmhand’s main focus is growing beautiful flowers, they also grow smaller amounts of herbs and vegetables. All of the crops are managed without the use of chemicals or pesticides from seed to post-harvest care. They believe that flowers deserve a place in our lives and don’t need to be reserved for only special occasions.
