Our Story

In 2003, Gwynn Hamilton and Bert Webster moved to family land in Giles County, Virginia, and began carving terraces out of a former hillside pasture.  We have spent the last 18 years adding fertility to the thin mountain soil and selecting the best crop varieties to suit the climate and geology of the southern Appalachians.  

 

Stonecrop Farm originally specialized in salad greens and heirloom vegetables, but gradually transitioned almost entirely to flowers.  Today, our terraces and greenhouses produce the New River Valley’s finest cut flowers.  Our team works to create stunning arrangements suitable for the table or altar.  

 

In the process, we strive to educate our clients and customers in the care and arrangement of their flowers and in the importance of selecting locally-grown blossoms.  Our team members leave their time with us well-versed in all aspects of growing, and a delightful number have gone on to start their own farming enterprise.

STONECROP SEEKS HARVEST VOLUNTEERS

We have an amazing team in place for 2023, but we welcome volunteers to join the morning harvest!  Want to spend a few hours surrounded by blossoms?  Want to learn some techniques, explore new varieties, and hang out on the farm?  Monday and Thursday mornings between 8:30 and noon we are scheduling slots for folks to join us.  You’ll load up some buckets of beauty and take some home to play with.  Call or E-mail to schedule your time and learn more!

EMPLOYMENT: We start considering our summer staff needs in the winter so contact us if you think flower farming is for you.
