Clarence and Lou - DavecoDaveco - DavecoWhat started in 2016 as a small (15 x 32) hoophouse to grow landscape flowers and plants is now four large tunnels (5000 sq. ft.), and several garden areas growing cut flowers for florists in the Wichita area. Starting small and increasing our production and sales each year has allowed us to grow into our market. All our crops are grown within 50 steps of our processing and cooler area. Efficient flower farming on a small scale through succession planting, and growing in tunnels has helped us triple our sales in three years. We plan to demonstrate the stand-up planter—custom-built for our farm—and other creative ideas to make flower farming a bit easier. Information on tunnels, shade cloth, pests, and supports for our crops will also be discussed.

We have invited several of our florists to visit with our grower attendees. We know they have lots of question to ask of them. They have been a wealth of information for us since we started in 2018. We will have dahlias, sunflowers, celosia, and dusty miller still growing in the tunnels at the time of our tour.
