Cat Run Ranch Flower Farm began in 2002 as we started cutting zinnias, sunflowers, and dahlias from our gardens and landscape. We began our journey selling bouquets at the Granville Farmers Market. As our love for flower growing grew, we moved to our present 16 acre farm located in beautiful Licking County, near Granville, just off the Scenic B-Way. We have two greenhouses and three covered hoop houses and farm about two acres. We share our farm with three dogs, three cats and a bird. We are launching SendHomeGrownFlowers.com in late Spring/early Summer 2017.

Our hobby for thirty years has been cacti and mostly succulents. We propagate many of our own plants still and often offer them for sale at the farmers markets. They’re fun and easy to grow.

We focus on environmentally friendly cut flowers using organic methods. Want to learn more about the importance of buying local flowers? Check out this helpful handout here!

Want to meet us in person? Visit us at the Granville Farmers Market on Saturdays from 8:30am-noon beginning May 6 and the new Canal Market District in Newark on Tuesdays from 4-7pm. You can purchase flowers at the markets or place an order for local delivery.


Green Stuff

We want to be the “greenest flowers” you can buy. Grown here, nurtured here, cut here, delivered here. Pure home grown Licking County flowers. At the heart of it all, we want your flowers to be "grown" not "flown." To learn more about the importance of buying locally grown flowers, check out this great handout from the Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers.

Cat Run Ranch is a small family owned flower farm. We care about the environment by responsively farming, using as few chemicals as possible. We believe in sustainable farming methods and want to leave the land better than we found it. Our farm was even profiled in the Columbus Dispatch - see the story here!

At Cat Run, we have worked hard to make our dream a reality; we put solar panels on our house! We can finally charge our two golf carts and our Chevy Volt with the sun instead of coal. What a concept! We are also working with the Granville Solar Co-op to install a second system for our pole barn and greenhouse. We are trying hard to lessen our impact on the planet, lower our use of fossil fuels, and do the right thing for future generations. We will post more pics as the project progresses.
