Happy as a Coneflower Farm (Pittsboro)
Happy as a Coneflower Farm specializes in locally grown, high quality cut flowers. The
farm was created out of a pure love of flowers big and small, humble and ornate,
vintage and modern. In our opinion, flowers aren’t a luxury, they’re a necessity and
we want others to feel the same way! Our local flowers smell better and last longer,
and most importantly, they’re affordable. Flowers are meant to be picked from the
field, popped into a vase and enjoyed………simple as that!
