Nevada Filling the Demand for Specialty Cut Flowers

Nevada small farms will soon grow new crops, with specialty cut flowers being the new crop. A workshop has been put on by the Western Nevada College Specialty Crop Institute to examine the possibility of locally growing and marketing cut flowers.

Classroom instruction will be taking place and the opportunity will be available to visit a cut flower grower in the area. Workshop participants can choose a time and place to visit the farm.

Brenda Smith and Vicki Stamback are the national leaders in the specialty cut flower industry and they will be the featured speakers for the weekend. They are both successful owners of businesses and teachers. Smith has been growing flowers at her farm in Dayton since 1996; while Stamback sells the flowers she grows at Bear Creek Farms to buyers in Tulsa and Oklahoma City.

“Specialty cut flowers” is a term that refers more specifically to all varieties of flowers not including carnations, chrysanthemums and roses…
