Along with our food service and education offerings, Planted Cuisine is also pleased to bring you our other project, Alchemy Farms. At Alchemy, we will not only support Planted Cuisine with incredible edible flowers, herbs and vegetables, but also offer the community at large a beautiful selection of cut & edible flowers curated by Naomi Call.

alchemy - a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation or combination...
At Alchemy Farms we will be offering: medicinal herbal bouquets, edible bouquets and edible blossoms by the ounce to bring magic ~ to your everyday life, or to elevate your most precious and life changing moments. Our flowers are grown with biodynamic principles in mind, with care for the soil and never using any chemicals or sprays. Flowers make everything more magical simply by their elegant and often whimsical presence. At Alchemy, we believe enjoying beautiful flowers and being stewards of the land we grow on go hand and hand.
We are available to work with you, your event planner, or caterer to make your every occasion more magical, colorful and exquisitely beautiful….from birthdays to passings, engagement surprises to weddings….organic local flowers will enhance those moments.
Our bouquets can be chosen by you, or hand picked by herbalist, farmer and alchemist Naomi Call. You can visit us at the Farmer’s Market in Traverse City on Saturday mornings from May thru October or email us with your questions and special order requests.
Our organic farm is located in Maple City and all of our flowers and plants have been grown in harmony with the biodynamic planting calendar. All of our soils have been amended with plant based nutritive tonics or worm castings.
Alchemy Farms is on a mission to bring more color, beauty and harmony to our community and to nourish your body, mind and spirit. As Chef Loghan reminds us, “you eat with your eyes first.” And it is true, we are what we eat…so why not explore the wonder of eating some of the most beautiful and glorious foods on our planet…flowers.
We know that consuming foods from a rainbow palette of colors brings a spectrum of nutrients. Adding flowers can also bring a spectrum of energies and tastes that are simply not available in any other foods. Most people have no idea how wide the variety of flavors are within flowers.
So, if you’ve only tried nasturtiums...which are spicy, you are in for a lot of treats this season. From delicately sweet borage blossoms, bee balm and bachelor’s buttons to every color of zinnia we’ll have a medley of colors and flavors!!
Our bouquets will feature some rare and special medicinal herbs. Looking for some peace and tranquility, or maybe you need uplifting...immune system needs a boost….we’ll have a bouquet for you.
It’s important to note that not all flowers are edible. Commercially grown flowers should never be consumed. The commercial cut flower industry is one of the most toxic industries, laden with chemicals it is taking a toll on our environment. We want to change that.
We aspire to herald in a new paradigm with our flower choices and we invite you to experience the magic of Alchemy Farms.
