Meet Steve & Gretel Adams

Steve and Gretel Adams started Sunny Meadows Flower Farm in 2006. It all started when they worked on a nearby farm and fell in love with flower farming. They developed a deep passion for farming and a strong drive to make their farming business the most efficient and profitable to provide a living for themselves and their team.

The farm is located in Columbus, Ohio in winter hardiness zone 6A. With 17 structures in production along with field growing they are able to produce flowers from March to November. Their ability to produce into the high-demand flower shoulder seasons allows for extended sales and better year-round employee retention.

In the beginning, they sold straight bunches of sunflowers and zinnias. Then they added mixed bouquets and that’s when the obsession with flower artistry really began. They soon realized they could create a botanical adventure by using what’s seasonally in bloom, making their weekly bouquets ever-changing.

They have multiple sales outlets and focus on both high production and specialty crops. Their passion drives their growth to supply more people with domestically-grown flowers as year-round as possible.

Being first-generation farmers, they knew it was going to be necessary to learn from others. Through that journey and the resulting success, it has made them even more passionate to share their experiences and knowledge with the wider farming community.

Steve and Gretel speak at national conferences and are members of the Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers. They were regular contributors for Growing For Market magazine and other farming publications with over 30 articles published.

This course was by far one of my most valuable workshops. I am in my second year growing in hoop structure and all of the ins and outs of structure and growing is covered. Wish I had taken course a few years back. Gretel and Steve’s knowledge, experience, advice, mistakes, are all shared. Big 10 stars if there were that many to give. Worth the money and time! Thank you, thank you!!!

Great course! Lot’s of very valuable “How to” information for tunnel flower farmers. I would highly recommend this course if you are thinking of growing in tunnels-heated or unheated. Thank you, Heidi Luck Luck of Bolton Farm, LLC.

Frequently Asked Questions

A & D Turner 

I love this course.
I’m a total beginner and just set up a brand new high tunnel. Now what? I was so overwhelmed and this course was perfect. I only wish I had taken it before I set up my system. But no worries, there are many right ways, many ways were discussed, and I now have ideas for future plans. Ok so the course gave so much more knowledge than I expected, everything from start to production. Every question I asked was answered in the live chat. I had to miss one of the live chats but it’s available now for viewing. I loved being able to do the coursework as I had time. I love that I can go back and view the videos anytime I want. I appreciated learning from growers who have experience, and basically gave me all of the knowledge, tips and tricks to succeed.


I have been growing in tunnels for some time now. Steve and Gretel have put together a solid course that – even I – got numerous pointers and tips from. I particularly like the way they have worked to expand and streamline operations, have found the best ways to maximize space, and have developed a solid schedule for the planting, growing and harvesting of many, various top-shelf crops. I met them several years ago and they have grown their farm exponentially in such a short time since. They are hard working, problem solving, righteous people that I admire greatly.
This course is definitely one that every flower farmer should take advantage of. I cannot tell you how many times I have gone back to re-hear things that I have learned (in the comfort of my own home) and it is so great to know that I will always be able to do this, anytime. A solid investment!!
