Founded in 2006, Saipua specializes in handmade olive oil soaps and dreamy floral arrangements. Their studio is in Red Hook but their flower farm, Worlds End, is located on 100-plus acres of rocky clay soil Upstate, about 30 miles west of Albany. Depending on the season, the farm grows narcissus, tulips, fritillaria, muscari, quince, hyacinth, ranunculus, and so on. Three cool things about Worlds End: It’s also home to a flock of Icelandic sheep; it runs primarily on solar energy; and it uses all of Saipua’s flower waste as compost. Right now, Saipua arrangements can only be ordered online, but we’ve been told you’ll soon be able to browse and purchase in-store, too.
