CASTLEWOOD, S.D. (KELO) — One family in Castlewood, South Dakota, is on a mission to spread the beauty of South Dakota through their homegrown flowers.
Jessi Ruml started Pixie Acre Flower Farm three years ago after spending a summer at home with her four daughters growing flowers and vegetables. Now, the farm has blossomed into much more selling bouquets at Farmers Markets and for weddings. There is even a design studio where people can learn to make their own bouquets.
“I’ve always said that, I never in a million years would’ve seen myself running my own business. Like, this is totally shooting it from the hip, kind of a thing, because I never saw myself here. And, life’s funny, you know, all of a sudden you’re on this path and you’re doing this crazy thing with a flower farm,” Jessi Ruml said.
In Thursday night’s Eye on KELOLAND at 10 p.m., Lauren Soulek will take you to Pixie Acre Flower Farm to see how this big, flowery dream came to be.
