Woodbine Flower Farm was created by Katie Toon in 2016 with the desire to bring sustainability to specialty blooms and encourage support of local farmers of all varieties.
Katie’s passion for sustainable growing began with her first Passion Flower vine at the age of 8. Since then, she has traveled across the country as an occupational therapist, filling her life with heirloom, seasonal, and local blooms. In 2016, Katie decided it was time to plant her first acre of flowers and set to work building the small farm that became Woodbine Flower Farm. Among a meadow of Winthrop sand and wildflowers, she planted over 120 types of blooms to sell to her friends, neighbors, and family.
Woodbine Flower Farms now offers Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs, wedding design, floral arrangement classes, and provides bulk botanicals to local florists. Katie has been featured on CBS11 as an expert in bee health and native botany.
Katie is assisted on the farm by Charlie the Mouser Cat, Annie the Chief Chicken Herder and Flower Protector, and Toby & Lilybet Francis, the City Kitties. The team at Woodbine looks forward to connecting our flower friends to the Earth around them and to one another through the sharing of ethically grown and lovingly collected blooms. We believe in beautiful dreams and want those around us to have beautiful lives.
