Bay Meadow Farms

About Us

Bay Meadow Farms is a family-run fresh cut specialty flower farm in Suttons Bay, Michigan. We grow our unique flowers on the same land our family has gardened on for over 100 years. We practice regenerative farming and have a passion for sharing our love of flowers with the community in Northern Michigan.

Our flowers are available at the Glen Arbor farmers market and our farm stand in Suttons Bay. We can provide weddings flower buckets, specialty orders, and DIY events upon request! Make sure to sign-up for the newsletter to know when these are available for purchase on the website!

Gardening is the memory of a hundred generations of women bending to the earth.

History of the farm

We are the 5th generation of farmers on the land. The farm's original owners, Auntie Elizabeth (who Bay is named after) and her husband Daniel, moved on to the property in the early 1900s. They grew apples, cherries, or berries, and Auntie always kept a beautiful garden. Throughout the years, each generation has used the land in different ways. Our family has always been growers at heart.

Bay Meadow Farms gets its name from Bay, who is nicknamed after Auntie, and Meadow from the sunny spot Margo grows the flowers.

We love Leelanau County and what it stands for. Intentional living, connecting with family, hard work, and handmade, locally grown products.

I am a grower at heart. No matter where I moved throughout life, I have always grown flowers or plants. I have what others would call a green thumb and I always felt at home. This land has a special meaning as it connects me to my family and roots. It is my way of relaxing as I move among the flowers and buzzing bees. My favorite moment of the day is deadheading as the sun goes down while my dogs run through the field, and then going to swim in lake Michigan with them and my daughter! I hope to continue to grow my farm and pass down a love for growing to more generations of my family.

I had always dreamed of slowing down and following in my family's footsteps. I worked with my grandpa for years on the cherry farm and watched my mom cultivate the most stunning gardens. My favorite memories include flowers whether it was the bouquets my dad gave me every year at my ballet recitals or planning the flowers for my wedding held on the farmhouse on the property. At Bay Meadow Farms, I help my mother in the gardens, and I also focus on all things business and branding! As a Virgo, I have always been analytical, organized, but also creative. I worked in fashion as a merchandiser and am a 5th-grade literacy teacher. My dream is to watch my kids run through the flower field chasing Winnie, the best Dachshund ever!
