My name is Jess Allen-Cronshey I operate a small organic flower farm, Newcastle Fleur about an hour on 80 west of Tahoe City Truckee. The Newcastle property has been in our family for almost 50 years. We specialize in growing romantic, fragrant, heirloom cut flowers and foliage. Our family farm has a number of specialty cut flowers in production including old-fashion favorites like zinnias, dahlias, sweet peas, sunflowers, pincushions and many others.
A LITTLE CHAOS
A LOT-A LOVE
AND YES, IT TOOK US 20 SHOTS TO GET JUST ONE
I have grown up in Tahoe City and now live in Truckee, we travel back and forth from the property to bring out Blooms to the area from June through November. After growing flowers for our wedding in 2014, it became a hobby that grew and grew into a few acres with a much needed outlet for our Blooms. We found a need for organically grown flowers in the area and we’re driving back and forth anyway so we started to bring back up the flowers. All of our customers rave about the quality and the vase life of our product and our almost zero shrink when it comes to our flowers.
Having grown up in this community and now raising our family here, we realize how lucky we are and that we have found our balance in two completely different worlds. We dig and plant and work the property, then drive back up to ski with the girls, or get on the lake. We have been able to realize a dream we didn’t know we had.
We are currently expanding our operation to include a limited number of Floral Subscriptions, with a partner drop site in Truckee and one in Tahoe City. We will grow • harvest • and deliver • flowers for every week of the summer months.
We would love to share our Blooms with more of our community, we all deserve a little of something beautiful, and we think you will love our flowers!
