Travel

When Christina Stembel was doing event planning for Stanford University, she was surprised to find that the majority of flowers used Stateside were imported. In 2010, she launched Farmgirl Flowers out of her living room with the commitment that she would only sell U.S.-grown flowers. Today, the company caters weddings, private and corporate events, and even hand-delivers by bike and car across the Bay Area, and via overnight shipping around the country. Farmgirl typically offers one daily arrangement (e.g., orchids, snap dragons, anemone, eucalyptus, even kale) wrapped in burlap, and in three different sizes, from “fun size” to “big love.”
