The formation of Barnswallow reflects our love, knowledge and experience in agriculture, combined with an equal appreciation of good land practice and support of our local bee pollinator population and wildlife habitat. Grow Outside is a long-term theme for our farm operation, exemplifying our practice of growing local flowers and produce, while also encouraging our community to grow daily as human caretakers of our fragile eco-system.
The conventional flower industry is huge and toxic. As flowers are not grown for human consumption, there is little to no regulation on the usage of pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers. Many of these flowers and produce are shipped internationally, which also places a giant, carbon footprint on our environment. On a global commercial level, fresh product is grown in circumstances that are incredibly hard on the soil and the people who cultivate, harvest and handle them.
Barnswallow continues to cultivate a passion surrounding the implementation of eco-friendly, farming practices to grow fresh, beautiful flowers and produce to share with our community. We continue to farm with organic practices and are life learners of soil care.
