alchemy - a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation or combination...
At Alchemy Farms we offer: medicinal herbal bouquets, edible bouquets and edible blossoms by the package to bring magic, color & beauty ~ to your everyday life, or to elevate your most precious and life changing moments.
Our flowers are grown with care for the soil and we never use any chemicals or sprays. Flowers make everything more magical simply by their elegant and often whimsical presence. At Alchemy Farms 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 for you. You can email us with your questions and special order requests.
Alchemy Farms is on a mission to bring more color, beauty and harmony to our community and to nourish your body, mind and spirit. 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 treat. 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!!
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.
When you purchase edible flower blossoms we recommend that you pluck the petals when you are ready to serve your dish. Please keep them refrigerated until you are going to consume them. They are delicate.
Their flavors vary greatly even within one type of flower, depending on the weather and their color you will find variation. There truly is nothing like eating a salad adorned with a spectrum of radiant colors.
We hope you enjoy some soon! We are selling blossom packages at Oryana Food Coop in Traverse City. A list of the names of all of the flowers in the assortments is forthcoming...please check back soon. Package contents will naturally vary in assortments and colors. Enjoy!
