Our farm is in Columbia County in Ghent,
New York, on the Ghent Flats fabled for its remarkably rich soil.
In the second quarter of the 1700's, Dutch settlers moved to the area and began to farm
on the land already cleared by earlier inhabitants.
The Ghent Flats constituted part of large tract
of land held by the Hogeboom family under lease from the Van Rensselaers, a notable family
in the history of New York. The Hogebooms, founders of the town of Ghent, farmed the land
for generations and played a critical role
in the historical development of Columbia County.
Flower Blossom Farm is situated in the middle
of hundreds of acres of locally farmed fields
that provide the backdrop for our flower gardens. Each day, each season brings new delights,
the freshness and sweet colors of spring,
the vibrancy of summer, the firey shades of fall and the stark elegance of winter.
