Little Big Farm
Growing beauty in the Garden State since 2006
Nothing makes for a better design than flowers that are fresher, longer lasting, and more fragrant than flowers imported from overseas. Better yet are the flowers that are so special and delicate that they have to be sourced locally!
For DIY wedding parties, we offer options for seasonal bulk flowers in buckets and specialty flowers in bunches that can result in a savings of up to 50% compared to full-service design work. Consulting sessions are also available.
Little Big Farm offers subscription services for customers who desire a weekly source of organically grown fresh cut flowers during the growing season. Offerings include “Little Buckets,” “Big Buckets,” and “Bouquets”
We offer three opportunities to learn about flowers. DIY Brides can learn how to make their own arrangements, flower lovers can and “Sip and Snip” their way through the flower fields, and gardeners can learn what it takes to grow their own.

Neha & Anup – Wedding Video from NST Pictures on Vimeo. It’s always fun to get professional wedding photos shared with us highlighting our work. It’s even more fun when the flowers appear in a slick wedding video! Congratulations to Neha and Anup! May you have a wonderful life together!
A very special “Thank You!” to Debra Prinzing for inviting Patti to share her story on the SLOW Flowers podcast. Patti and Debra spent about 20-minutes talking about growing organic cut flowers in the Garden State. Listen to the podcast interview here. Debra Prinzing is quite a celebrity on the American flower circuit.[…]
Before the flower farm, there were the gardens. From the first backyard cutting garden we planted in Washington state, to the Family Garden at the New York Botanical Gardens, gardening has been a passion throughout the years. Even when moving from one home to another, some of the most beloved plants moved with us. Needless[…]
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to join Patti and her good friend, Barbara, of Bonnie Hill Farm, as they set up an arbor for a wedding at Bear Brook Valley, a beautiful new wedding venue in Fredon, NJ. As the wedding day approached, the forecast seemed to pointing to rain, rain, rain, but on the[…]
New peonies take time. Back in 2015, Patti and her team planted 100 “baby” herbaceous peonies knowing that they wouldn’t be able to harvest the blooms for at least two years. These perennials need the extra time in order to become established and mature before sharing their blossoms with the world. Sound familiar, moms?[…]
Even though it’s the same every year, spring always seems to sneak up on us. And how green it is! I took this pic to capture the explosion of emerald green grass that is welling up on the hill like a new sea. The local flowers are not out yet, but there is a whole[…]
Last weekend, we received a few new “pond guests” after some feathered friends found themselves in need of a home. We spliced together a few shots from the cell phone and laid down a silly sound track just for fun…
We are very happy to introduce our intern this year, Eugenia Alcorta! Eugenia is currently a student at the School of Professional Horticulture at The New York Botanical Garden. She will be with us until the end of June. Eugenia has a passion for learning all about flower farming and floral design and we are[…]
Week #10 – February 29 We’ve had some pretty beautiful days this last week of February here in northwestern NJ. The weather was warm and sunny and we all rushed outside to get some work done. Working outside in February is what we call a “freebie,” a day that you would not otherwise count on to[…]
