The Farm

It is our belief that great flowers are the foundation of a beautiful design. As a Colorado farmer florist, our designs begin with the intention, attention and nurturing from when we seed or plant a flower, to the harvest of the flower at its optimal stage, all the way to the selection and placement of the flower in the arrangement.

There is a unique relationship between the farm and the designer, and Zephyros Farm and Garden is the soul of Studio Z Flowers. Connection to place, inspiration from the natural surroundings and an investment of time and love culminates in the amazing creations that come out of our studio.

Zephyros Farm and Garden is a Certified Organic 35 acre farm on the Western Slope of the Rockies growing over a 1000 varieties of woody and herbaceous perennials, annuals and bulbs for the past 13 years.  Don Lareau and Daphne Yannakakis have a collective plant and farm enterprise experience of over 40 years! They are passionate about being stewards of their land, creating habitat for wildlife and employing sustainable, organic and biodynamic practices on the farm. They invite a family environment with their employees enjoying harvest day lunches that are feasts to behold. They send everyone who invests themselves in their operation home with flowers in one hand and a bag full of beautiful vegetables in the other.

Committed to education, Don & Daphne have a vibrant internship program where they immerse individuals from far and near to the process of operating a small diversified family farm.  Inviting the community to experience the farm, they host farm to table dinners, weddings and events as well as live music in their Occasional Funk Feasts.  All of the love, vibrancy and passion toward the land and community are transferred into the product they grow and speak clearly through their flowers.
