ADAM + JENNIFER O'NEAL
Adam is originally from south Louisiana and spent his childhood days playing in his backyard, the swamps of a nature preserve. That early exposure to the wonders of nature and gardening grew into a passion for being outdoors and growing things. Adam has been a master gardener for many years and has had the pleasure of working and learning in various restored historic gardens throughout middle Tennessee. After years of study, tending heritage gardens, and farm management, he and Jennifer finally found a little piece of land to tend to their own.
Jennifer is an Iowa native who inherited her Grandmother’s love of flowers. She is a long-time gardener and floral designer. Her entire childhood was spent on her grandparent's farm and in their garden. She would spend long summer days helping her grandmother sow, tend, and harvest lush garden blooms. Her grandmother was an accomplished floral designer who Jennifer enjoyed working side by side and learning from. She would help her grandmother arrange flowers and soak up knowledge as her grandmother designed for various events or competitions.
"Our twenty-acre flower farm is cozied on the bluffs above Middle River Valley surrounded by the covered bridges of Madison County, Iowa. This beautiful piece of
land is home to our family of five, three dogs, seven cats who love to welcome guests, six acres of cut flower gardens, butterflies, birds, bees, and plenty of space."
