Five on Friday is an Indiana Grown feature of our members that shares FIVE interesting things about their farm or business.
Get to know member Knobstone Flower Farm as part of this week’s edition of Five on Friday!
1. Business/Farm Name
Knobstone Flower Farm
2. Where are you located (city/town) and what county?
Scottsburg (Leota area), Scott County
3. What do you sell?/What does your business do?
U-pick flowers; wrapped or arranged in bouquets or by the bucket!
4. What is an interesting fact about your business?
We use organic methods such as using cover crops integrated directly into our sunflowers. Cover crops attract beneficial insects and pollinators. Beneficial insects and pollinators help reduce pressure from pests, control disease and improve our overall soil and habitat biodiversity.
5. What are your plans for 2021?
We are expanding our half-acre u-pick flower gardens to include an amazing sunflower and wildflower experience. Our sunflower and wildflower fields will include a 20-minute nature walk along a beautiful 3-acre lake. We will have bluebird & duck houses, bee hotels & hives and Monarch Butterfly waystations as part of the sunflower and wildflower experience. This will be a great opportunity for photographers and those who appreciate wide open spaces out in nature!
