Meet Steve and Gretel
Steve and Gretel Adams started Sunny Meadows Flower Farm in 2006. Being first-generation farmers, they have built the farm from scratch to what it is today, working from 1/4 acre with a homesteading vibe, to now 20 acres of production. They have experienced all the growing pains of having different economies of scale on their farm- building infrastructure, a productive and efficient team, and all the systems required to run such an operation. Through growing flowers, they have developed a love for farming and a strong drive to make their farming business the most efficient and profitable to provide a living for themselves and their team.
The farm is located in Columbus, Ohio in winter hardiness zone 6A. With 17 structures in production along with field growing, they are able to produce flowers from March to November. Their ability to produce flowers in the high-demand flower colder seasons allows for extended sales and better year-round employee retention. They have narrowed down their sales outlets to be mostly wholesale to florists and grocers, but still have some retail opportunities with their Farmstand and online shop. They have through the years sold in many different retail and wholesale outlets while they found and built their market, so can speak knowledgeably about all the outlets possible in the cut flower market from weddings to farmer’s markets, wholesalers, and more. They focus on both high-production field crops, and also specialty greenhouse crops to provide a nice selection through the season. Their passion drives their growth to supply more people with domestically-grown flowers as year-round as possible, helping to regrow the domestic flower market.
Through their farming journey, they have learned so much from others that have been mentors and friends in the industry. Through that journey and the resulting success, it is important for them to share their experiences and knowledge with the wider farming community. Steve and Gretel have spoken at many conferences over the years and are members of the Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers. They were regular contributors for Growing For Market magazine and other farming publications with over 30 articles published over the course of the past decade.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does this school include floral design training?
No, this school does not provide training on floral design, as this school’s primary goal is to train current or aspiring flower farmers how to build a profitable wedding/event farmer-florist business.
Why would I buy an online course when there is so much free information on the internet?
What is the difference between School courses and Mini-Workshops?
Mini-Workshops vary from sixty minutes to over four hours of instruction, see individual courses for details. Each of these courses offers lots of valuable information on a specific topic that you can digest in a short amount of time and put into action right away.
School course content is much more comprehensive and covers broad topics. School courses are meant to serve as a long-term reference tool that you will use all throughout the course of your flower farming journey. Each course includes 6 modules, which each contain multiple video training sessions, instructor worksheets, and handouts, and an FAQ archive. All of the course sessions (including the FAQs) are searchable by keyword, so you can always find and go directly to the information that you need at any given time.
Do I have unlimited access?
Yes, you have lifetime unlimited access to your purchased courses.
Do I have to watch at a certain time?
Do you offer course discounts?
Yes, once you are part of our course family (owning any online school or workshop) you will be eligible for $50 off additional school courses.
I live outside of the USA, may I purchase a course?
Yes, our online courses are available internationally.
This sounds great, but can it be done in MY region/growing conditions?
YES! We strive to make the lessons in these courses universally applicable across all regions and growing conditions (as proven by our students who range from Alaska to the Tropics!). Rather than just telling you what to do, our courses will teach you how to assess your environment and make decisions based on your specific conditions.
