Our Story

Hi, my name is Heidi and I along with my husband Kevin and our four children, Morgan, Ashton, Blake and Caiden operate Stems Flower Farm, a small flower farm just outside Cookstown Ontario.  We have been growing flowers and selling seeds online since 2016. 

Like most small farms, we have learned to be flexible with our offerings.  We spent most of our farm life providing premium stems to florists and event designers in the Greater Toronto and Simcoe County area.  We grew to include an on-farm market in 2020, showcasing some of the best in season vegetables and Niagara fruit that some of our fellow farmer's in the area produce.  Our expanded range of goodies includes, local honey, baked goods, maple syrup, and of course, we offer our hand tied flower bouquets and other flower bunches. In 2021 we introduced a Cut Your Own Bouquet Garden, where we invited you to come and stroll through an acre of flowers and choose a bouquet from the thousands of blooms on hand.  We have grown over 30,000 dahlia plants in the last five years.  Now that business is returning "to normal", we have decided to focus on our energy once again on our seed store. 

Our online seed shop offers over one thousand different seed varieties specially selected for their superior growing properties. We try to maintain a robust assortment of around 55 varieties of vegetable seeds and the widest assortment of Cut Flowers available in Canada.  

We live in a 156 year old farm house with our 4 kids who range in age from 16 to 10. Here at Stems, farm life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
