On this week's episode of The Rural Woman Podcast™, you'll meet Rechelle Day.

Farming has always been near and dear to Rechelle, as her mother and father’s families have been farming for decades, and the spectrum has been broad (strawberries, potatoes, watermelons, alfalfa, corn, wheat, peaches, cherries, apples, pears, and the list goes on). 

While experimenting with her own yard, Rechelle would reminisce about the memories she shared in the garden with her mother and Grandma, Kahler, and her interest in how different flowers grew. As each season passed, Rechelle’s little garden squeezed in between Christmas Trees and became larger and larger, she soon became interested in all the different plants, and her free time (although small) was filled with learning more about the various flowers she could grow. Each season she would try to grow something new, sharing her harvest with friends and family. When COVID-19 flipped their worlds upside down, Rechelle found the greatest peace in her garden, pulling weeds and cultivating beauty through flowers. It was at that moment she decided she needed to share this beauty and happiness with others, and thus Freckled Bloom Flower Farm was born!
