For beautiful flowers grown locally and without the use of pesticides, Wild Acres near Omemee is just the place for you, says owner Kim Callaghan.

Along with her husband, Theo Schoenmakers, Kim opened Wild Acres in 2021. Both Kim and Theo have farming backgrounds, and they thought flower farming would fill an important local niche.

Wild Acres offers weekly bouquet subscriptions, arrangements, bouquets, and special event flowers. They even sell to local florists.

“We grow with the environment in mind,” says Kim. She points out that the natural way in which the flowers are cultivated results in more natural habitat for insects, birds and wildlife.

The flowers are picked the morning of, or the evening before any event and then made into bouquets.

Kim’s favourite part of growing flowers? The joy that Wild Acres bouquets bring to all her customers.
