Locally Grown Fresh Cut Flowers

Bouquet Subscriptions

Arkopia Flower Farm

Arkopia Flower Farm offers bouquet subscriptions of blooms grown right here on our farm for Saskatoon area residents, as well as farm fresh florals for weddings and special events. We are so looking forward to connecting with you!

Proudly Saskatchewan Grown Flowers

Our flowers are all grown right here on our farm just outside of Saskatoon. All flowers are grown from seed, bulb, or corm, tended to with a lot of love and attention!

Our offerings include annuals, perennials, as well as tree and shrub foliage. We are expanding our perennial beds by a large amount this year and are looking forward to focusing on that as a sustainability project over the next few years.

Some seeds are started as early as December so that they can be harvested in August or September of the next year – a lot more work goes into those farm grown blooms than many realize!

We strive to use practices that complement nature’s intention. We try not to use any pesticides or herbicides on our flowers – we use beneficial insects and proper soil management techniques to keep the bugs in check!

 

2022 Subscription Information

Weddings and Special Events

Bouquet Subscriptions

Subscriptions may be picked up from our pickup location- Joyne Marketplace OR you can choose the option of delivery at a fee of $5 per each bouquet. Delivery would be on a date chosen by me, with a one weeks notice of delivery date and time. The reason we do this is because we cannot control weather conditions and sometimes crop timing just doesn’t work perfectly! If you choose delivery, please have a bucket of water placed outside in the shade for us to place your bouquet. We need to keep those flowers cool!

Frequently Asked Questions

I am glad you are here!

My name is Jessica Sopher, and I am your flower farmer, along with my husband Dean and our three boys – all aged 3 and under! It is a very busy place around here.

I grew up eating peas in my mother’s garden, and “helping” as she tended to her plants. Fast forward to now, I’ve grown veggies, trees, and everything under the sun, but my passion is flowers. I love watching how a seed as small as a pinhead can produce the most abundant blooms you’ve ever seen when tended to with just a bit of attention and love. My husband has built our family a large greenhouse, and now all of my gardening dreams have come true! I am so excited to bring the Saskatoon area fresh cut flowers, truly grown with so much love.

We started our homestead from a bare piece of land in 2013- there were no services, buildings, or power on site when we bought the land. My husband and I have worked hard to build our self sufficient life with our own hands. (….well mostly my husbands two hands, and I helped, ha!) We are also working hard on rehabilitating our neglected and eroded land, using wood chips, cover crops, and other natural measures to protect our soil.

Frequently asked questions:

Can I request certain colours and flowers in my bouquets?

Unfortunately no, however I promise that bouquets will be a beautiful mix of colour, texture, and shapes of what is in season on our farm.

Can I choose my delivery or pick up date?

All bouquets will be delivered or have to be picked up on a to be determined day of the week. Unfortunately we live outside the city and have young children, so it is impossible for us to make special trips to town for one bouquet, especially with the cost of fuel these days.

Where do you deliver to?

We deliver to Saskatoon, and will consider surrounding areas depending on demand. Currently we will deliver to surrounding areas for a delivery fee of $10

Do you do weddings?

I am open to doing a limited number of weddings for the 2022 season! If you are someone who is understanding of the importance and sustainability of using flowers that are in season, and you are flexible on the colours and  types of flowers used in your bouquets, we may be a good fit! Send me an email or a DM to discuss. I would love to hear from you.
