What does sustainable flower farming look like?

When Margo first visited Terrace from Nova Scotia, she planned to stay for the weekend. Margo and her partner, Matt began searching for the perfect place to plant a small flower farm, and in 2019, she found the land that is now home to Fernweh Farmstead. Fernweh loosely translates from German to mean a longing for a place you've never been.

Nestled in the Coast Mountains just outside of Terrace, Fernweh Farmsteadspecializes in growing seasonal cut flowers for local farmers' markets and weddings and offering weekly bouquet subscriptions for delivery or pick-up.

The small family farm is run by Margo, her partner, and one employee, with a focus on sustainability for the land, her business, and their family.

"We appreciate the land and the community we're in, and we're learning every day," Margo says. "We're trying to find that sweet spot of sustainability by looking after the health of the soil, connecting with the community, and creating a legacy for our children."

The variety of flowers they produce and the work they do each day changes with the seasons.
