In 2018, Colvergold Flower Farm became a reality as Jenna Cook’s passion for growing flowers combined with Adam’s agronomic acuity. Planted where a barn once stood on their northern Sac County farm, the couple’s flower beds needed some serious soil amendments to be productive. Jenna has grown the business year by year, adding new varieties, more growing space and capitalizing on market opportunities through unique relationships with other small, local businesses.

Join Jenna and Adam to see their current flower production, and learn about the steps they took to amend and prepare their beds. They’ll also discuss marketing, sales and working with local businesses.
