Who we are and what we do
Welcome! We are Beth and Joel Fortin, the owners of Little Green Garden. We grow flowers for the Kansas City Region and design for special events. We farm on Beth's family land in the small township of Morton, Mo where she is the sixth generation to grow, although the first to offer specialty cut flowers. We started growing professionally in 2016, after several years of experimenting in our own backyard. We knew we could provide high quality florals to the local market by using sustainable techniques and lots of sweat equity. Our first year we started with seven simple 50 foot rows. We have since expanded to over an acre of production, and in 2018 we added a separate peony bed at a second location. We began selling at the Overland Park Farmers Market in 2017, and the same year had our first three weddings. We provide flowers to restaurants for Valentines Day and Mothers Day, and started our corporate subscription program in late 2019. We grow mainly in the field, but also employ cool flower techniques using low and high tunnels to extend the season. In 2020 we expanded our dahlia and lily fields to provide ever more blooms for brides, florists, and all the flower lovers we can sustain. We are flower lovers. We cherish the rich soil we are able to grow on. We appreciate every sale that keeps our family thriving and able to continue on this adventure! We are a member of the Floret Farmer-Florist Collective and Slow Flowers.
