Meet your Farmer-Florist
“Hi, I’m Samantha! I’m the founder of Sea Change Farm & Flower.
I care deeply about feeling connected to nature, and connecting other people with nature.
Flowers have the power to bring nature into the lives, homes, and celebrations of so many people!
I love flowers of all kinds. I love flower arrangements that are wild & organic, with texture and feeling.
I have a background in sculpture installation, so I get really excited about creating custom floral pieces for our wedding clients: things like floral arches, floral staircase installations, and other flower sculptures.
I am thrilled to be your farmer-florist.”
Committed to Local
We aim for 100% locally-grown flowers in all our design work.
The standard bouquet carries a huge carbon footprint: most flowers sold in the US are flown in from other countries.
We source flowers from our own farm, and from a
network of other flower farms in the Hudson Valley.
When flowers are local & seasonal, they have a special energy to them.

Our Growing Practices
We use organic growing practices on our flower farm.
No scary chemicals on our flowers!
We practice no-till methods on our farm, and are always adding more regenerative farming techniques to our toolbelt.
We believe in farming in a way that is sustainable: meaning, it builds & sustains the soil, sustains our flowers, and sustains local pollinators.
What does the name mean?
The farm’s name comes from something a friend said to Samantha when she was figuring out what to do with her life:
‘Good luck with your sea change!‘
A “sea change” is a shifting of winds, a changing of tides, a movement in great currents around us.
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 this change in perspective.
