About the Farm
Wray Sinclair Photography
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 17 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.
Join our Team!
Stonecrop is always looking for enthusiastic people to join us for the summer farm season. Preference is given to those who can work May-October, but we can work around school schedules. Ideal candidates are interested in floral design, love dogs, and are not afraid to work hard and get dirty assisting in day-to-day farm work such as transplanting, weeding, and harvesting/processing stems.
We start considering our summer staff needs in the winter so contact us if you think flower farming is for you.
