First Light Blooms

Lexington, VA

Locally-grown flowers delivered directly to your door!

We are so excited to offer our farm-fresh flowers as a vibrant addition to your tables or events.  100% of our cut flowers are grown on site without pesticides to provide a haven for our friendly pollinators. Because we are a small-scale farming operation, we attend carefully to the design choices in each bouquet and provide the freshest blooms possible in each floral arrangement. We hope you enjoy our flowers as much as we enjoy growing them and bringing joy to families in Lexington and the surrounding area.

My husband, Tim, and I moved to Rockbridge County in 2012 when Tim started flying for an EMS helicopter company through the local hospital.  I worked prn as a nurse, homeschooled our three girls, and spent time in the garden when I could.  Growing up in Montana on a cattle ranch, I had deep roots in agriculture but had never grown cut flowers.  Five years ago I bought a few seed trays, dug up two sixty foot sections of our front lawn, and planted out dozens of seedlings.  I was in awe of all the things that could grow here, but with a busy family life, I was content to just enjoy a few pretty flowers every summer.  After my son was born, I resigned from my nursing job and began reading more about cut flowers, particularly "cool flowers."  I was hooked.  More seed trays and more grow lights filled the basement, and Tim encouraged me to try to sell what I grew.  He dug up six more long flower beds, and we laid compost and drip hose and started planting out the little seedlings in March. I reached out to some women from church and nearly cried when I received my first sale...two months before anything was ready!

As we look back on our first selling season, I am so very thankful to those who purchased bouquets, who brought me jars and vases, and those who prayed when sideways rain and voles threatened my plants.  I have loved seeing flowers filling up more of our landscape, but even more, I have loved  having my girls working out there alongside me with the little boy throwing dirt between the rows.

Thanks for submitting!
