Arriving at Terrace


Terrace Studios formerly Farmhand Flowers is the current incarnation of a small farm business started by me, Sarah Monteiro. 

In 2013 I made the decision to move away from vegetable farming towards flower farming because I believed in creating a small farm that could be tended to by hand rather than diesel. I believed I could create an environment of work that supported my body rather than aged it. I believed I could create a habitat for pollinators: native bees, monarch butterflies and bats. I believed I could create a farm that could resist the over-worked, over-tired, under-paid environments of many I had known. To achieve this has demanded that each season I revise and refine my focus growing on smaller and smaller scales. To learn more about my current growing practices please read more about the Gardens. 

I have been growing full time since 2017 and it’s a deep love that makes sense in my bones; I just know how to do it. It has taken me 6 years of growing flowers and creating weddings to finally understand my place in this business. I want to believe that the wedding part of this business can also be ethical. I am setting out in 2020 to try. 

 The only trend I am interested in is the trend to care enough about our planet and one another that our decisions reflect that.  If you would like to know more, please visit the Offerings sections. 


I also make really beautiful flower arrangements.1
