Hi Friends! We are Gary and Lauren Klouda, and we started Honest Desires Farm in 2012. We began as an urban farm and moved to our current farm in 2016 in Medina County, Ohio. We had a couple of years of hiatus as we worked on our new homestead, but we are now bringing you wholesome, fresh, local foods and flowers.
Wade’s Pastured Chicken: In the summer of 2023, our preteen son, Wade, decided to start a business of pasture-raised chickens. Committed to longer growing, heritage chicken breeds that he pasture raises, moves daily, and feeds only non-GMO feed from Ohio feed mills. He raises small batches at a time during warm weather months. Please join our mailing list for updates and when chickens are available to purchase in 2024. Chickens sell quickly.
Enduring Dried Flowers: Our flowers are preserved and available in simple, enduring flower bouquets. They are also available in other artistic arrangements, such as our Enduring Flower Frames, Pressed Art Frames, and Bell Jar Displays. We do work with brides for weddings.
Edible Flowers: We grow edible and medicinal flowers and have them available for purchase on our website. Fresh edible flowers are currently seasonal, but in 2024, we will have freeze-dried. Excellent garnishes for drinks, cakes, soaps, and more.
Fresh-Cut-Flowers: Lauren has been growing flowers since she started gardening at our first homestead in 2008. After years of growing them and sharing them with family and friends, she realized how much joy flowers can bring, so she launched into making and selling seasonal bouquets. Cut flowers are available at the farm stand while seasonally appropriate. If you are looking for a bouquet and are worried about availability, please call or text us; we would be happy to help you.
Microgreen Kits: We have created 2 types of DIY kits, our Mini Microgreen Kit & our Tiny Garden: DIY Microgreen Kit to help your family experience the fun of growing fresh, nutritious food. These kits contain everything you need to grow four types of microgreens right in your own home! Full instructions, trays, organic soil, and certified organic seeds exist. These kits are available at our farm stand or can be ordered on our website. In addition, our kits are available at various locations and can be mailed. Please get in touch with us for details.
Live or Cut Microgreen: Our fresh microgreens are available by order only until summer when we have live trays at our farm stand. A limited quantity of spicy and mild salad mix, pea, and sunflower microgreen trays are available at the farm stand every Monday and Tuesday. Most trays are ready to eat in 7 to 8 days. To order microgreens we need 10 days to grow your order.
Soaps: Our boys have been raised on the farm. They were inspired to start Farm Kid Soap Company in 2020. However, COVID got in the way, and they launched their business this summer. It will be a fantastic learning experience for them. Their soaps are fun designs and scents. Visit our website to see what they have available.
Creative: Lauren is available for creative projects, from setting up a website, to designing a logo, to creating labels for products. More information can be found on our website.
Thank you so much for your support. We hope to see you soon!
