Here at Hedge Post Farm, we grow and harvest a variety of products for the retail and wholesale florist, interior designers, and others who want unique products for their customers. We specialize in woody florals, cut perennials, and naturals harvested from the land.
Golden Curls Curly Willow
Our curly willow is full-bodied and often reaches heights of 8 feet before harvest. We harvest the bulk of our stems in the dormant season and currently have beautiful dried branches. Multiple sizes, to boot. Not a fan of dried? Check with us about our next harvest of fresh branches.
We're growing an inventory of pussy willow. This year's longest stems produced as many as 30 to 40 catkins per branch. There will be more next spring!
We have pruners and we're not afraid to use them! We keep an eye out for unique branches and naturals suitable for arrangements and decorations.
Cattails and Lotus Pods
When Mother Nature allows, we harvest cattails and lotus pods from our ponds. We have dozens of dried or drying cattails available now, 4 to 6 feet long. We'll spray them to avoid unexpected explosions. Our dried lotus pods are sold with and without stems.
The flora of the Flint Hills is unlike any other, especially the native grasses of the Tallgrass Prairie. Switchgrass, Big Bluestem, and Indiangrass all are great fresh cut or dried. Let us help you put the prairie in your designs! Don't be surprised that we have acorn caps, pine cones, and other naturals. An experience in floral design is always present when evaluating what can make a desirable product.
We've harvested our first crop of Sea Lavendar, Limonium latifolium, this summer. HUGE dried bunches are available now!
Our farm is named for the 1930's shelterbelts of Osage-orange (Hedge) trees that edge our property and its use in our fences. Check out the peg puzzles and rock-solid Osage-orange walking sticks made from our trees.
Most of our cut items can be sold fresh immediately after harvest for local customers. Depending on the item, we can ship dried products, with pickup at the farm an option for larger branches. Our products may be found or requested at Flint Hills Floral and Gifts, Council Grove, and Vintage Gardens, Kistner's Flowers, and AsterHouse Design, Manhattan.
