Established in 2011, Ardelia Farm & Co. is a cut flower farm and bakery in Vermont's picturesque Northeast Kingdom. Bailey raises specialty cut flowers for florists and floral wholesalers, and produces sweet seeds for flower growers. Thomas runs Kingdom Direct Food Delivery, offering weekly dinner party menus, prepared foods, pantry staples, and local grocery items for delivery throughout Northern Vermont.
Bailey heads up floral operations at Ardelia Farm & Co. After running his own floral and event design company in Philadelphia for nearly a decade, Bailey discovered that his true passion is growing flowers.
Our chilly growing conditions are perfect for cool-loving flowers sweet peas, ranunculus, anemone, and peonies; and Bailey focuses most of our production on these crops, particularly sweet peas.
Thomas runs Kingdom Direct Food Delivery at the Ardelia Farm & Co. kitchen, sourcing the very best in local and organic ingredients. While Bailey is the macro-thinker of the operation, Thomas is the micro, finding great joy in every list, detail, and spreadsheet.
In April 2020 Thomas was named a Food Network Chopped Sweets Champion after winning his episode of the all pastry Chopped spinoff.
