Owner Beth Foose has always gardened and says that she wanted to produce something to sell but had not yet had the opportunity.
"We were on a road trip to Texas, and I just decided that I was going to try selling flowers," Foose told BOOM Jackson.
"Since then, it's just become a family business. ... I had never imagined that it was going to grow into what it's grown into. We've been pretty overwhelmed with the support we got for the business, but I think we all kind of laughed it off on that road trip," Saulters says. "We were like, 'Yeah, right, Mom. We'll have a flower farm. OK.'"
"A CSA is a good business model for a small farmer because you have subscriptions, and people pay, and you really need the revenue to invest in seeds and prepare the ground and all of those kinds of things," she says.
In growing flowers for Little Bluestem, Foose likes to keep the business focused on growing organically and sourcing locally.
"It's the right thing to do," she says. "We have a responsibility to ... not exploit the natural world."
