About Us
Kokoro (? ) is a Japanese word that means "with heart" or "to have heart". Kokoro conveys the spirit with which we strive to farm, our commitment to community, and the passion of the farmers and mentors with whom we have worked and continue to inspire us. Kokoro Flowers established 2016, leased land from 2016 to 2021. We were able to secure land in the fall of 2021 after receiving a land purchase proposal from a couple of seasoned farmers whose intent to transition land to the next generation of farmers is resolute. Through the winter and spring, we focused on projects to support the transition of our farm, and infrastructure for the business and our employees of initial year in operation. We are in partnership with Meara's sister Kylie, owner of Three Seed Farm, where as a team we will continue to put our best feet forward in planning, stewardship, and development of the farm. Much has been accomplished, with much left to do. We are grateful to all of the support from family, friends, and neighbors, and know we are in a rare and privileged position. We hope in future years to offer opportunities to other beginning farmers who are faced with many different challenges in starting a farm.

Our mission is to provide our communities with local, accessible, and ethically raised flowers and produce. We grow organically with sustainable and regenerative practices that include rotational cover crop and grazing, and no chemical fertilizers or herbicides. We also aim to put the land, water, soil, and pollinators first to ensure the immediate and long-term health of our ecosystem. We believe if the source is healthy, we can grow healthy food and flowers for our customers. It is also our mission to engage with our community's social networks and focus on the inclusivity of all members of our communities. Whether it be economic, cultural, or social differences, our drive is to work on making our products available to anyone.

Finally, the members of Kokoro Farm are on stolen land and acknowledge the implications and complications. It is our commitment as the current caretakers, to continue implementing land-focused practices, and put the work into connecting, learning, and hearing from members of our communities to learn how to better serve.
