About

Sea Change Farm & Flower is a woman-run specialty cut flower farm and floral design studio in Accord, NY.

Our fresh flowers change with the seasons, from tulips, poppies, and anemones in spring to zinnias, cosmos, and lisianthus in high summer, through to dahlias and heirloom chrysanthemum come fall.

Meet your Farmer-Florist

“Hi, I’m Samantha!

I left New York City and moved upstate when I realized that I care deeply about feeling connected to nature, and connecting other people with nature. Weekend hiking trips were just not making up for all those hours in the concrete jungle.

Maybe you can relate?

Flowers have the power to bring nature into the lives and homes of so many people! I love this about Sea Change.”

“My formal background is in software engineering, which sounds hugely different from farming. And it is! But, flower farmers actually do a ton of problem-solving, and I love using my problem-solving skills to bring beauty into the world.

I also have a background in sculpture installations, which means I get really excited about creating custom floral pieces for my wedding clients: things like floral arches, floral staircase installations, and other flower sculptures!

I am thrilled to be your flower farmer.”

Our Growing & Sourcing Practices

We use only organic growing practices on our farm, no toxic chemicals here! We also practice no-till growing methods on our farm, which we feel are healthiest for the flowers, the farmers, and the earth.

We are committed to using 100% locally-grown flowers in all our design work. We source flowers from our own farm, and from a network of other small flower farms in the Hudson Valley. You can read more about our flower sources here!

What about the name?

The name Sea Change comes from something a friend said to me when I left the city unsure of what to do next, but searching for a life closer to nature:

‘Good luck with your sea change!

A “sea change” is a shifting of the winds, a changing of tides, a movement in great currents around us.  As well as being a major shift in this farmer’s life, the name Sea Change is a nod to the growing power of the Slow Flowers movement, a larger shift in how we think about flowers.

We are excited to contribute to that change in perspective, and to help people realize the value and incomparable beauty of flowers grown locally, seasonally, and in environmentally responsible ways.
