Hi there! Welcome to OneEighty Petals. We're John & Sara, and we are thrilled to offer Door County residents and visitors stunning, sustainably and locally grown flowers.
Our story started five years ago when we decided to ask "what if?" What if we said "so long" to life as we knew it and followed the detour to an old farmhouse and plot of land in beautiful Fish Creek, Wisconsin? What if we followed a dream to combine our love of art with our passion for sustainable living and creative expression.
After months of planning, attending classes, reading, planting, weeding —and countless prayers that our hard work would actually pay off — we opened OneEighty Petals for its very first (though short) season in 2017. Fueled by the success of our roadside stand bouquets and wholesale business, season two saw the addition of the cut-your-own flower field and boutique floral design services. Season three was a season of growth in many ways—and wrapped up just in time as we welcomed baby Jack!
With the addition of "Farmer Jack" we knew season four would be different from any of our previous seasons. But no one could have predicted just how different the 2020 season would be when we found ourselves pivoting our business model in response to a global pandemic. Instead of growing, harvesting and designing for weddings and events, we welcomed so many guests to the pick-your-own flower field and our Petals-to-Go self-serve bouquet cooler sold out every single day. What started as our most challenging season turned into our most rewarding thanks to the overwhelming support of each and every customer that visited our farm or ordered arrangements from afar.
As we prepare for another season, we are more grateful than ever to continue to grow and provide you, our customers, our friends, with the freshest locally and sustainably grown flowers in Door County!
From the beginning, we committed our farm and floral services to being 100% local. From seed to stem, every single flower in a OneEighty Petals bouquet or arrangement is grown by yours truly right here on our farm, guaranteeing you the freshest flowers possible.
Because everything is field grown, we work closely with nature. Some years that means an early start to the season, others (like this year) a bit later. But in general, you can expect to see the self-serve roadside stand and flower studio open in late June or early July, and the pick-your-own field in late July. Our menu of flowers changes with the season, so be sure to check our Facebook page or follow us on Instagram (@OneEightyPetals) to get the latest farm updates and flower availability. In addition to flowers, we also have a flock of about 40 laying hens, produce our own raw honey and raise Miniature Silky Fainting Goats for show and pets. If you follow us on social media or subscribe to our blog, you're sure to meet many of the faces that make up the OneEighty Homestead.
We’re so grateful to be back for another season. We couldn't do it without the support and encouragement from you, our customers and community.
