Bloom Where You're Planted Farm is located on a farmstead established in 1881. The farm was purchased in 1944 by Bill and Florence Brandt, grandparents of current owner Teresa Lorensen and husband Terry. The name of the business has special significance. In the years when Teresa was dissatisfied with her career and looking for something more fulfilling, her mother would tell her to “bloom where you’re planted,” or in other words, make the most of the place you’re at in life. Those words helped inspire the Lorensens to take the leap, and in 2005 they opened a new business on the farm where they had been "planted".

"The experience you have spent so much time creating for families is above and beyond what I had expected. Your farm is truly magical! It was so amazing to watch my kids, twin boys age 3, and boy age 9, run from place to place....and always with a smile. I felt so comfortable letting my kids run around, and was never worried about their safety. Everything from the corn box, to the nature trails to the pumpkin painting loft was experienced more than once over the course of the afternoon!

I appreciate how simple life seems at your farm. So many times, these places become so commercialized and don't focus on the one thing that is so important....family. In creating Bloom Where You're Planted Farm you have created a place where families can bond, slow down, and focus on each other. Thank You! Thank you for sharing your blessings with our blessings!"
