A flower farm...

 

Flowers are our passion at Historic Veblen Farm.  Our bouquets and wedding decor have that "fresh-picked" country garden look because they really are just-picked, frequently going from field to vase in a matter of hours.  We offer a variety of unique, hard-to-find and charmingly old-fashioned seasonal cut flowers.  

  Our guiding principles can be summed up in three words--LOCAL…SEASONAL…SUSTAINABLE...Not only are our flowers strikingly beautiful and deliciously fragrant they're also safer--safer for the birds, bees and butterflies that frequent the garden and safer for those who wear, carry or share our flowers with others.  Using only sustainable farming methods our flowers are grown with deep respect and consideration for our customers and the environment. 

We love bringing joy and beauty into the lives of others with our flowers and welcome inquiries about special deliveries and our floral design services for weddings and other occasions.  Flower subscriptions for businesses and individuals are available in the Northfield, Minnesota area.  

   

 and a Historic Farm

Our busy flower farm is most notably known as the Thorstein Veblen Farmstead National Historic Landmark.  This property was designated a Landmark by the Secretary of the Interior due to its national historic significance.  Just 2% of the properties listed on the National Historic Register are Landmarks.

This little known Landmark has national significance because it was the childhood home of Thorstein Veblen, one of America's most important economists. The Thorstein Veblen Farmstead National Historic Landmark is one of only 25 Landmarks in Minnesota, including Charles Lindberg's home in Little Falls, Fort Snelling in St. Paul and Split Rock Lighthouse on the North Shore of Lake Superior, among others.
