US (NJ): Locally, sustainably grown tulips bloom at Somerset Co.'s flower farm

With a little education and practice, Jessie Babbitt of Neshanic Station in Branchburg turned her "black thumb" into a "green thumb" and a thriving flower farming business.

Babbitt, along with her husband Eric, and their 4-year-old pitbull rescue named Chance, took a leap of faith in 2019 when they uprooted their lives from Mount Olive and bought two acres in Neshanic Station.

Now they run B.A.R.E. Flower Farm, which has a mission to offer a "local alternative for blooms while creating a community that centers around living a more sustainable lifestyle."

As a relatively inexperienced grower/gardener, this was not something Babbitt was familiar with at first. She always had an interest in sustainability and had initially delved into vegetable gardening to reduce her carbon footprint on the planet.
