the farm

It's been about a year and a half since I moved to the Bay Area to work for the family business, in beautiful Half Moon Bay, California. I think it's high time you get a glimpse of the farm.

Welcome to Bay City Flower Company.

Fact: hydrangea is the largest crop we grow


Vintage hydrangea - these flowers naturally age on the bench for 2 months after they are in full bloom to gain rich color

The first crop of poinsettia of the year

Succulent beds


"Red Velvet" echeveria shoots - cute and fuzzy
