From the Hosts
We are Judd and Shannon Allen We have the honor and privilege of farming our land together and creating a lot of beauty in this world. When we started, we had 1/4 acre and three children under three. We’ve learned so much since we planted those seeds 6+ years ago! We’ve expanded the farm every year and now it includes eleven acres of cut flowers. Our children have grown right along with the farm and now we get to live our dreams together everyday,
Bloom Hill Farm is a specialty cut flower farm growing on over eleven acres. This includes nine acres of annuals, one acre of perennials and woody cut shrubs, and four greenhouses. Our season runs late March through October starting with specialty tulips and ending with mums and other fall tunnel flowers. We plant over 10,000 dahlias each year and specialize in other crops such as sunflowers, ranunculus, anemone, and lisianthus. Our farm utilizes biodegradable plastic as our main weed control method. Over the last six years, we have grown our farm from 1/4 acre to over eleven acres and attribute that success to a lot of hard lessons learned, perseverance, and business focused decision making.
Our current sales outlets include: wedding and event design, on farm events, farm stand, retail florals, florists, grocery and wholesale accounts. The farm also supports an over 125 person CSA model.
In 2022, our farm was featured in a national John Deere advertisement. Shannon is the co-host of flower farming podcast, The Dirt on Flowers, and together they mentor other farmers with on farm consulting.
