Welcome to Russell Meadows Floral & Nature Farm!
Thank you for taking a few moments to get to know a little about us! My name is Tammy Yow-Russell Aifd Cfd NCCPF, and I am the owner and lead designer of Russell Meadows! I have enjoyed 28 years as a professional designer and have worked in many areas of the floral industry during my career! Russell Meadows is not only the name of my Freelance Design business, but also the name of our Miniature hobby farm where I reside with my husband Damion and daughter Rheydyn!
We enjoy the everyday antics of our herd of Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats, mini pot-bellied pigs, chickens, ducks, guineas, turkeys, cats and dogs! We are helped on the farm by our 2 Great Pyrenees - 11 year old Shia Rae and 5 month old Kya Rose! All of the animals play a vital role here! The goats produce offspring to sell, milk to make goat's milk soap, they maintain the pastures to reduce mowing, and produce fertilizer for the compost piles later used in the gardens! Our mini pigs are a wonderful stress reliever and enjoy belly rubs and a variety of snacks! They love leftover or discarded produce and veggies! The chickens and ducks produce eggs and help with insect control and additional fertilizer! The guineas help with security and alert when predators are near so the dogs can protect the herd and flocks! All of our beautiful birds produce a lovely variety of feathers during molting season which we gather, sanitize and use in various craft projects! All of our animals here are pets and enjoy a leisurely life!
Since 2010, we have offered professional floral designs and services for all occasions and special events, as well as providing custom items for home and office decor! Over the years, we have focused on our efforts to include growing a variety of products such as flowers, foliages, herbs, grasses and succulents! We also collect many natural materials used in my designs to create a unique element specific to Russell Meadows! We specialize in utilizing unusual items and design techniques to create original and quality products for our clients!
In 2018, I began a rebranding process to really encompass my love and passion for the art of floral design! I work from my private studio and meet with clients via phone, email, video conference or in person by appointment! I recently began the process of developing a few new product lines! Most exciting is the creation of Rheydyn's Naturals! Together with my very talented 10 year old daughter, we are designing a line of beautiful Nature gifts for kids! Education is so important and sharing a love for our natural world with children is truly a dream come true! In the future, we also plan to offer instructional videos for children and adults as well as on site classes! A listing and photos of our products and upcoming events will soon be available to view and purchase on our website, facebook page, Local Harvest page, Instagram and online store!
We look forward to sharing all of the exciting updates soon!
Thanks for checking in! Have a great day!
