Hidden Gem Flower Farm is a small-scale flower farm growing specialty cut and heirloom flowers using sustainable, natural practices in the mountains of Asheville, NC. Owned and operated by Lori Babiar and husband Sam, both veterans of the U.S. Army. Lori and Sam established the farm in the summer of 2020. Though new to the cut flower business, Lori has been an avid gardener for over 30 years, growing vegetables and flowers to share with family and friends. As our bounty of flowers grows, we are excited to bring farm-fresh flowers to our community.
We provide farm-raised, local fresh-cut flower bouquets at Tailgate Markets local to the Asheville area.
We also provide fresh-cut flowers to local florists. We pride ourselves in harvesting our flowers at the proper stage and using appropriate post-handling procedures for each variety to ensure we provide the freshest, longest-lasting, beautiful blooms. We prefer to cut to order but we can also provide same-day service depending on availability.
Hidden Gem offers small-scale landscape services to both residential and commercial customers. Unique landscape designs can offer enhanced curb appeal and add a unique identity to your home or business. We provide design, installation, and maintenance services to planter and window boxes or small-scale in-ground spaces.
As part of our landscape service, we provide free estimates and preliminary designs. We will install the agreed-upon plants in your selected containers or in-ground gardens. We use the highest quality plant material available and the appropriate flowers for the right location to maximize the curb appeal potential of your site. We also offer maintenance packages for weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly visits. These maintenance services include tasks such as watering, fertilization, pruning, and plant replacement as necessary. Seasonal planting changes are available at additional costs.
