Southern Grace Farm
After we lost Gracie our hearts were broken beyond repair, but we promised her we would carry out her dreams and do beautiful things in her memory. Steven’s brother, Scott, and wife, Analia, were determined to help us make Gracie’s dreams come true so they bought her a farm. This was the birth of Southern Grace Farm. We have spent countless hours working the land and dreaming of how her farm will evolve. A long term goal of Scott and Analia’s is to resurrect, Camp Gracie, a camp for special needs children.
After Gracie’s death a picture of her in sunflowers, that her dear friend Anna took, became frequently shared and everyone started associating Gracie with the flower. Steven and I decided we would try our hand at planting sunflowers with hopes that we could raise money for the foundation and our hard work has paid off. The sunflowers have been a labor of love for our family, friends and community volunteers. Although the birds and deer have presented some challenges we have managed to produce hundreds of sunflowers. This year was trial and error, but we are so very proud of them. Next year we hope to have even more.
Southern Grace Farm will be open beginning September 8th. Hours will be 5:30pm-8:30pm on weekdays and 10am-8pm on weekends.
This year our pick-your-own flowers are pollenless, which are great for bouquets and for people with allergies.
We also have a new LOVE, Virginia is for Lovers, sign that will be on display for you to take pictures with as well.
Entrance fee is by donation only, and sunflower stems are $2 each.
Reminder that there is only a two week window to see the sunflowers.
