Laughing Crow & Company Flower & Fiber Farm has new digs!
Two months ago, we bought an adorable five-acre farm and are currently starting all the flowery things from scratch (yikes!). While our little family farm may never technically be empire-sized, we certainly aim to produce flowers of empire quality.
This is where our fabulous friends at Sanctuary Soil come in. This California-based organic soil company dumped a big, delicious pile of their Empire Builder soil into one of the flower fields. We are hard at work this fall to get our first flower beds ready to rock in the spring of 2019!
Sanctuary Soil is a brand of California Soils, which the largest producer of organic worm castings in North America. Perpetual, cutting-edge research has them producing top-tier soil products including:
Every one of their products are held to the highest agricultural standards, with several being certified organic (OIM & OMRI listed).
We chose to start our flower beds with sustainable and nutritious Empire Builder. This is a masterful blend of coco coir, sphagnum peat moss, composted forest product, worm castings (WORM CASTINGS are already inside, ya’ll!), coco chips, lava rock, pumice, perlite, gypsum, langbeinite, sea bird and bat guano, fish bonemeal, feather meal, bonemeal, limestone, greensand, alfalfa meal, kelp meal, glacial rock dust, azomite, soybean meal, and rice bran.
By the way, we think Sanctuary Soil’s Empire Builder is the right one for our flower fields, but this blend is not just a one-trick-pony. Empire Builder is perfect for grow bags and both indoor and outdoor pots, too! We’ll be sure to post about our organic super-soil journey as the flower farm takes shape in the coming months.
