Flowers are the primary focus at our farm and design studio, where 1.5 of our 16 acres is devoted to floral production. The flower farm is a beautiful space with paths between rows, so visitors can stroll through and see crops up close. Early October is an especially colorful time, with dahlias in season.
The local flower movement, on the heels of the local food movement, offers far greater variety and quality than imports. We are excited to share the freshest florals and our chemical-free, environmentally-friendly growing methods.
Open during tour and by appointment.
FARM PRODUCES Specialty and heirloom cut flowers (dahlias, peonies, roses and many others), shrubs, vines, herbs and berries for weddings and other floral design

Established in 2015, Bramble Rose Farm is a first generation farm that strives to provide high quality produce using natural growing practices like pest control, weed management, minimal tilling,no dig and composting. They employ a variety of gardening techniques including Square Foot and Mittleider gardening plus Premaculture, Hukelkultur and Back to Eden methods. Through these different methods they compliment and integrate their vegetables at a high density to increase yield, maximize their small spaces, and improve soil biology. They have two green houses and one high tunnel to extend their growing season and provide a CSA program.

Small Mission Farms is located just south of beautiful Tonganoxie on Hwy 24/40. The farm was started to help Chris and Lizz prepare for their ultimate goal of going overseas to share the Gospel and be full-time missionaries. They started telling folks about what they were doing on their farm and that led to sharing the extra with friends, family and the community. Their family is seeking to be self-sustaining and produce what they need to provide for themselves and have surplus for those around them. They are a very small farm, figuratively and literally, as their last name is Small and they have some of the smallest and largest breeds of their animals. They have Flemish Giant rabbits, Pygmy and Nigerian Dwarf goats, Brahma and Bantam chickens, as well as ducks, cats and dogs (which include a Chihuahua and a Great Dane/Black Lab mix) with more animals being added constantly. Their animals each have a purpose on the farm but they are also loved as part of the family. They are also unique in that they have the current record holder for the world’s hottest pepper as well as the previous record holder in their garden. So, if you like spice they have it! They also handcrafted jewelry from coins and vintage silverware and will have live demonstrations, so bring your coins and silverware and get a keepsake while you wait!
