Three Sisters Farm Flowers Tennessee

Hi, I’m Wendy! In 2006, My husband, myself, and our three daughters moved to our beautiful farm in the Upper Cumberlands of Tennessee, just six miles from downtown Cookeville. We initially began growing fresh produce on a small portion of our farm, but soon realized that our passion is growing beautiful flowers for all occasions.

As small family operation, we founded Three Sisters Farm in 2010, specializing in using organic practices to grow cut flowers and create seasonal, fragrant, and often heirloom, flower bouquets.

 

 

Our growing season begins with tulips at the end of March and finishes in December with fresh Christmas wreaths. We harvest in the cool hours of early morning or at twilight in the evenings, picking only the best blooms to create sensational seasonal bouquets. We value growing our flowers with 100% sustainable, organic practices

We feel extremely fortunate to live where there is abundant wildlife, beautiful woods and of course, flowers, and we hope you will support our mission to provide our community with beautiful and organic blooms.

 

The Name

 

At the inception of our produce farm, picking a name to fit our family farm was difficult, since we all had our own ideas. I wanted something personal that described our family, then I remembered a farming practice used by Native Americans called the "Three Sisters" method, where they grew the three main agricultural crops in North America: winter squash, maize (corn), and climbing beans. In a technique known as companion planting the three crops are planted close together. The three crops benefit from each other.  The maize provides a structure for the beans to climb, eliminating the need for poles. The beans provide the nitrogen to the soil that the other plants use, and the squash spreads along the ground, blocking the sunlight, helping prevent the establishment of weeds, Hence the name.
