Finding Inspiration with Every Flower
Brooks Harvest Flower Farm is located in Shelbyville, TN about an hour Southeast of Nashville and an hour and a half West Northwest of Chattanooga. Me and my husband have been married for almost 30 years and have two children, two grandchildren. We have lived on our farm for almost 20 years.
The farm is for everyone that loves nature, flowers and beautiful scenery. Our family has always been a very close family, our goal is to bring families together as stress free as possible.
We are a family farm all the way down to the grandkids. We started the farm in 2019 when my dad retired and moved to the farm with us. It started as a vegetable garden, slowly went to flowers and in 2021 became mostly flowers.
I grew up with my parents always having a garden. I was born in Montana, my mom's family is from Mississippi and have lived a whole lot of places in between. Our family moved a lot so me, my two sisters and my parents have always been extremely close and loved the outdoors. I can remember as a child working in the garden, making mud pies at our house in Colorado and eating fresh asparagus, my grandmas flowers in Montana and camping in Mississippi. All of my greatest memories from my childhood were outside enjoying nature.
Now that I have children and grandchildren I want them to be able to come to the farm and enjoy the outdoors and nature as much as I did when I was a child. When we decided to turn the farm into majority of flowers it was because I also want to be able to provide locally grown sustainable flowers for your events.
The farm is MOSTLY chemical free, I say mostly because we do not use chemicals unless we have a major infestation of something. We want you to be able to smell the flowers, enjoy the flowers, without any chemicals that may harm you. I want to be able to bring my grandchildren on to the farm and they can smell or eat whatever they want without worrying about chemicals.
I got into wedding and events because on special days like weddings, proposals, birthdays, etc. you should not have to worry about the small details. Families should be able to enjoy themselves stress free and just enjoy the time they are spending together.
