Locally-grown flowers and floral design in Vacaville, California.
Monica started Midsummer Flowers LLC in January 2020 after three years of farm management on a diversified vegetable farm. She grew up in the Bay Area and attended UC Davis. While at Davis, she fell in love with the countryside and was inspired by the small farm community. Shortly after graduating, she grew her first garden as a Peace Corps volunteer in Fiji and her passion for planting never stopped.
Monica is the owner, farmer and designer at Midsummer Flowers and grows over 30 varieties of annual and perennial flowers on 1/4 acre. She leases land from her family farm in the little Locke Paddon community, just outside the city of Vacaville. She and her husband live on the farm and enjoy working hard from dawn til dusk.
Midsummer Flowers was named after the longest day of the year. In cold climates, many wildflowers begin blooming at this time, and it is a lovely day to celebrate warmth and light after a long, dark winter. Midsummer Flowers pay homage to her time farming on the east coast and the blending of American and Swedish cultures in her immediate family.
As a child, Monica always picked her mothers flowers too early because she was so excited to share their beauty. As a business owner, she promises to pick your flowers at their peak. She is thrilled to be operating a small farm business and can’t wait to share the beauty and bounty with you.
