Looking Forward to 2016
First, I trust everyone had a wonderful holiday season, and I'd like to wish you a Happy New Year.

As we look to 2016, and consider our Guiding Principle #9, to "Continuously improve and innovate," our farms are poised to make improvements in many areas. Whether it is growing, shipping, marketing, or customer service our goals are set to improve even more. This philosophy is hard wired into our organization, and is one of the keys to our success.

2016 will be the year that Women's Day gains even more mainstream attention and generates more floral sales across the industry. Please visit this website and order your free Women's Day posters, the deadline is approaching soon, so do not delay.
                                              Happy New Year,    


Colored Callas!
Our Zantedeschia crop is coming in very strong in Oxnard, right now we have at least 7 colors available and the quality is phenomenal.

Our callas are renown for their excellent vase life and outstanding bloom size. We traditionally grow this crop in the summer in Arcata, but  the temperate winter weather conditions in Oxnard are perfect and contributing to the great quality.  

Dizzying Dahlias
Dahlias are a very hot flower right now. They embody the shabby-chic rustic look perfectly.

Dahlias are wildly colorful, and that's what you see in our Oxnard hoop houses, wonderful color! Some folks think of Dahlias as a summer flower, but in true Sun Valley fashion, here we are with plenty to harvest with great quality in mid-winter.

Let a bunch of dahlias warm you up!
