Join three experienced flower growers and a wedding/events planner as they describe the creative ways they are marketing cut flowers off of the farm and generating a high end market for flower use.  Angela DeFelice of Rock Steady Farm and Flowers, Jenny Elliot of Tiny Hearts Farm and Shannon Algiere of Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture will pool their resources together to offer insight into generating income with flower stems as a sole production crop or from within a diversified farm operation.  Estelle Silberman, Event Manager at Stone Barns Center, will also join the conversation offering words of wisdom from her long time involvement in the flower industry. Each panel member comes from a unique farm and industry background and will therefore be covering a wide spectrum of options for making the most of your flower crop. The discussion will include wholesale, retail, CSA, events, weddings and value-added components.
