We're here for those who want to recognize beauty, to value the little things, to live in vibrant communities, to make meaningful experiences, to prioritize quality over quantity. Life's just better where flowers are grown.
From backyard activities with mom, to our roles in out-of-state family weddings where we earned our nick-name “The Ohio Flower Girls”, to our own recent weddings, flowers have long been a part of meaningful experiences in our lives. And since Hannah began selling flowers roadside in 2016, flowers have taken on even more significance in our lives as our small farmer-florist business has evolved. Now, we’re thrilled to provide an option for fresh, locally grown flowers that our customers can be proud of as they create their own meaningful experiences.
Hannah originally kicked off this business by selling flowers roadside in 2016 with help from her now-husband Ethan (below). She works on the business across the board, but is the creative guru in the business and does much of the arranging.
Besides her work with The Ohio Flower Girls, Hannah also owns part of The Market at The Pickwick Place, along with Ethan and others. When she's not working, you can often find her cooking up something scrumptious for the whole family.
Always smiling (and usually talking) Haley is the only non-youngest in the group and it shows. She's the gal for keeping us up-beat, on track, and behaving. Haley helps all across the farm and is especially involved in our customer service and administrative tasks.
Haley is married to Tad (below). They lived in Kansas City for a few years before moving back to the Bucyrus area in 2021, in large part to help with the flower farm. When she's not working Haley likes to explore new restaurants and farmer's markets (but she's usually working).
What can be said about Ethan that his hat doesn't already say? Ethan helps out with our farming operations, especially during planting at the beginning of the season, and you can often find him on a tractor.
Besides helping us farm, Ethan farms his own fruits and vegetables and is responsible for much of the produce you can find locally at The Pickwick Place. He's also unreasonably fanatic about racing and enjoys long walks on the farm.
50% responsible for the existence of Haley and Hannah and largely to thank for the existence of this business! She's been growing flowers with us since we were little. Karen is an elementary school teach by day and pitches in big time to help on the flower farm.
You can often find her harvesting or interacting with customers at the U-pick patch. It's not unusual to hear the phrase from her, "you heard it here first", because she's up on the trends and keeps great ideas flowing our way.
The other half to our duo of supportive parents on the farm. Yes, our dad has jokes - but we’ll admit, he’s actually pretty funny. Whether helping us with our fair animals back when, or now on the flower farm - Dad’s often found lending a helping hand. And he’s no stranger to the farm-life… he’s been doing this since Lyndon B. Johnson was president : P .When he’s not working, you can find him playing cards, coaching high-school girls basketball, or trying to make it to his Saturday-morning breakfast club meetings at The Cafe.
Clareese is the youngest of the bunch, but already a veteran around the flower farm - she’s been a big help to Hannah since the early days! Clareese helps with pretty much all things around the farm, and especially enjoys putting together dried flower arrangements. She’s quiet… but we also see her beautiful smile frequently, so we’re pretty sure she likes us. When she’s not working you can find her showing her fair animals, playing volleyball, or being educated as a high-school pupil - go, Royals!
Brittany has only started working with us recently, but our history goes way back to play dates when we were wee-little.Now on the team, Brittany has brought lots of flower-arranging experience with her - educated in floral design in college and with previous experience in another florist shop.She has been a MAJOR help as we’ve expanded our wedding flower offerings.
When not working Brittany enjoys reading, crocheting, gardening, and camping. She lives with her husband and daughter who is nearly two years old …which leads us to her special skill: Brittany can cook an entire meal one-handed!
Ethan's long time dog, Loki is deceptively cute, very effective at his job, and definitely lives up to his name. He spends much of his time patrolling for rodents and boosting morale - sometimes trampling a few flowers.
When he's not working, you can frequently find Loki lounging on his outdoor sofa or chasing all of the farm cats, except for his buddy, Junior.
Our resident marketer, Tad helps with social media, advertising, and our website. You can also often find Tad around with his camera and encouraging us to "get some story content". Besides helping with our marketing, Tad runs his one-man marketing agency and works with clients. When Tad's not working, you can find him trying to perfect his chili recipe or outside doing landscape photography.
