"This sure is one gullywasher of a rain!"
These words, shouted during one summer deluge, earned our farm its name - and lost us our hilly driveway!
Gullywash Gardens, both our home and farm, is in beautiful hill country. We are bordered by ravines and overlook the gorgeous Minnesota River Valley. Our area is resplendent with wildlife, rich forests, and fresh air. We love gardening, we love vegetables, Barbara loves her flowers, and Roy loves our two ponies. We love our chickens, cats, Maggie the dog, suppers on the porch, owls hooting in the night, sunlight dappling through the woods, and smoke mingling with the fragrance of sweet maple sap boiling. We even love our dilapidated barn and shed! We love it here, but maybe not the mosquitoes...
After years of sustainably farming vegetables and flowers and running a successful CSA, we decided to scale back a little and devote our time to the more artistic pursuits. We took an unforgettable trip to the Netherlands, and experienced the stunning flowers and landscapes unique to the area. After enjoying such inspiration, we decided to upsize the flower portion of our farm, and are now proud to offer sustainably grown flowers, shiitake mushrooms, and home grown maple syrup to our customers.
