Notes From The Producer

Bachelor's buttons: a sight for sore eyes (quite literally, herbal folk remedies used a decoction of bachelor button flowers as a wash for "tired eyes"). Oak Hill Farm of Sonoma grows these wonderful cerulean blue bachelor's buttons. 

Sometimes known as cornflower, because of their tendency to grow as weeds in grain fields, bachelor's buttons earned their current common name from when young bachelors would wear the flower on their vests when they had feelings for a certain person they were courting. The longer the flower lasted, the more it showed them that true love was there. 

If the flower faded, however, well--maybe it was time to move on. 

Today, it's still worn as a boutonniere, though that certainly won't take away from the awe-striking beauty they can have placed in a simple vase upon your table.

Care for these flowers by trimming their stems upon delivery, and doing so periodically, while changing their water daily.

About The Producer

Oak Hill Farm of Sonoma
Glen Ellen
Oak Hill Farm is 25 acres of productive farmland nestled against the western slope of the Mayacamas Mountains in Sonoma’s Valley of the Moon. The farm is part of a larger 700 acre property, which, as the founding property of the Sonoma Land Trust, is permanently held under conservation easement as protected wildland. For more than fifty years we have farmed using sustainable agricultural practices. Our temperate Mediterranean climate allows us to harvest over two hundred varieties of vegetables, fruit, flowers, perennial greens, and herbs over the course of the year. We farm responsibly with our natural resources and respectfully alongside our native California oak woodlands and wildlife. It is our mission, and always has been, to farm in balance with nature.
