Sustainably grown flowers for Baltimore
We started growing flowers to serve the enormous demand for locally, organically grown stems. We're lucky to work within the ecosystem of Baltimore, where florists, grooms and brides, chefs, locavores, and bees of all kind flock to our flowers. Our blooms are for anyone who needs them.
Our farm is an acre of color just over the Baltimore City line in Pikesville, Maryland. We grow our flowers and herbs "beyond organically"- that is, we don't use any pesticides or plastic mulches, not even ones that are certified organic. The farm hosts a happy clan of honeybees, rabbits, squirrels, deer, hawks, a family of groundhogs, and two farmers.

Baltimore native Laura Beth Resnick launched the farm after a few years of apprenticing on East Coast organic farms. In 2013, Butterbee Farm's first seeds were sown on a 13th of an acre in Reservoir Hill. Midway through the summer, artist and California transplant Jascha Owens volunteered on the farm, and the two have been farming together ever since.
