Of all of the crops that we grow, sweet peas reign supreme. Bailey learned early on that our climate is well suited for the production of cut sweet peas all season long, and he has befriended the world's leading sweet pea experts in the UK and New Zealand to source the highest quality seed. We will be growing more than 25,000 sweet pea plants in 2020, primarily for producing cut stems for wholesalers on New York's 28th St., but also for seed production.
"My grandmother, Ardelia Roggenkamp Moore (1915-2013), was one of the warmest and most hospitable women you could have ever had the fortune of knowing. It was from her, while on childhood visits to her farm, that I developed my love of flowers and passion for gardening. She was a fine cook who took great joy in feeding her family and neighbors. She graciously remembered her grandchildren in her passing, assisting Thomas and me in realizing our dream of buying a farm of our own. We thought it only fitting that we name our farm in honor of Ardelia, and strive to keep her memory and spirit alive in everything we do." -Bailey
