ABOUT US

CHICA BLOOM FARM

Sebastopol, CA

Pretty. Dirty. Sustainable.

Chica Bloom Farm is a small sustainable flower farm in Sebastopol,  CA. We grow over 60 varieties of cut flowers for unique bouquets for wholsale and the occasional wedding or special event. We specialize in a “farm-chic” design style that is based on seasonal varieties that grow well in our coastal Sonoma County area. We believe that growing these beautiful plants should help the soil, water, air, people and critters instead of hurt them. For this reason, our farming practices never include chemicals or pesticides that are harmful to the environment or ourselves.

A Bit of Our History
…..
Ariana and Lisa in 2012
Chica Bloom Farm was founded in the Spring of 2012 by Ariana Reguzzoni and Lisa Murgatroyd. Setting out with the vision and dedication to grow a beautiful flower garden. They were joined by two other talented flower farmers and designers, Daniele Allion Strawn and Betany Coffland and the business quickly blossomed into a special event, CSA, and floral design business.
Chica Bloom helped launch Daniele and Betany to start their own businesses and you can now find them at Jolee Blooms in Occidental at Chloris Floral in Petaluma, respectively.
Lisa continues to grow flowers in Petaluma for her family’s farm First Light, where they are available at the farm store and are as U-Pick flowers from late June through October.
Chica Bloom has been built and nourished by a wonderful group of Farm girls and we’re excited to see where the next adventure takes us!
