Brown’s Cut Flower Farm

On Sunday, the Birmingham Rose Society met in Cook Spring’s Alabama for a very interesting garden tour.

Brown’s Cut Flower Farm, nestled in the rolling hills of north central Alabama, this flower farm packs bloom power! Becky Henderson, the proprietor is a true profile in courage. Upon retirement from a large telecommunications company, she decided to open the flower farm on the property that has been in her family for generations and for Becky, it is a labor of love.

Specializing in dahlia’s, sunflowers, daisies and an assortment of wildflowers, you can purchase these beauties right on the farm or on Saturday’s at Birmingham’s popular Pepper Place Market.

I want to encourage you to come out to the market, meet Becky and her daughter Amy, then pick up some blooms to take home.  You’ll be glad you did!

 p.s. These flowers make great companions for roses in your garden!
