HANCOCK — Katie Savalchak has been a passionate gardener for years and this season she is turning that love into a new business.
Savalchak is offering flowers on a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) basis with paying members receiving fresh flowers every week for eight or 14 weeks.
Many Hancock County farms offer vegetables on a CSA share basis. Full payment early in the season helps cover farmers’ high expenses before the crops are ready to harvest.
Savalchak, who is growing her flowers in a hoop house at Star Root Farm on Route 1, is offering a “bucket share” for eight weeks at $120 and 12 weeks, $200. The bucket allows buyers to make their own bouquets.
A “bouquet share,” where the flowers are already arranged, is $160 for eight weeks and $270 for 14 weeks.
