Gray Arbor Farm is a seasonal cut flower farm located just 10 minutes from downtown Georgetown, KY.
Gray Arbor Farm is owned and operated by Chris and Kelly Stanley. We also have a lot of help from our amazing and sweet daughter Averie!
Before becoming flower farmers, we had built successful careers in retail management. We were not entirely fulfilled with our work and always talked about owning our own business. We would dream of owning acres of land with a little farm house we could fix up. On our days off, we would spend hours in our veggie garden and tending to our flower beds. Even though it was a pipe dream to have our own business, we didn't immediately recognize that farming would be our future.
After many years of working opposite schedules from each other and juggling multiple babysitters against our crazy work schedules; it became glaringly obvious that we needed to make a change. The idea of owning a home based business, doing what we loved as a family, made more and more sense each day. In October of 2015, we sold our house and in July of 2016 we found our farm -- with a little white farm house that we can fix up! We spent the rest of that summer and fall reclaiming the field from the over grown brush. With the help of our wonderful family and amazing friends, we fixed up the house so we could move in. We spent the spring and summer of 2017 trialing different flower varieties and taking tons of notes. Spring of 2018 started our first season in full production.
We are just getting started and are excited to share our flowers and our journey with you! You can follow our farm's progress and growth on Facebook and Instagram. You can also visit us every Saturday in the summer at the Georgetown/Scott County Farmers Market.
