Welcome to Flowers on Phoenix

Amanda Keene~Flowers On Phoenix

Hello! I’m Amanda…

I grew up in Illinois with corn fields in every direction. Farming was part of my family history. I studied entomology throughout my childhood through 4-H and even now enjoy keeping up my knowledge of the insects that range on our property. I attended Mizzou in Columbia, MO. where I received my bachelor’s degree in Parks Recreation Tourism and Natural Resource Management and where I met my husband, Jordan, who also studied agriculture. The pandemic brought us to rural Missouri and closer to family where we hope to grow our small flower farm business and enjoy serving our patrons for years to come.

I am a stay-at-home mom and have homeschooled our children for over ten years now. My husband has always encouraged me to pursue what I love. “Go for it,” he says. I have always loved tending a flower garden, no matter the size. I love learning new things and seeing what I’m capable of. This laid the foundation for me to start this business. I took flower farming courses, read countless floriculture books, and completed an entrepreneur/ small business class earlier this year through Start-Up Moniteau and Launch U.

My goal is to provide our customers with an experience that is unique. Whether it is families coming to make a new memory with their children, couples coming for a date activity, or an individual who just loves flowers, we are your location for that in Mid-Missouri.

When designing with flowers, you have to be creative. Floral arranging is an art form in itself. I like to think outside the box. I want to fuel others’ creativity as well with the flowers we have here. Being creative can increase positive emotions, reduce anxiety, and improve the function of our immune systems as well!

I enjoy being involved in every aspect of the farm from starting seeds, taking care of the soil they grow in, and teaching our kids how to grow food and flowers. A seed has a very small footprint, but it can make a big impact!

I love to study the intricate designs of flowers, photograph and sketch what I see, smell scents that are only found in fresh blooms, and just take time to breathe extra deep when I’m working in the flowers.

People want to reconnect with others again. There is something magical about a place where flowers surround you. They are good for our souls.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “The earth laughs in flowers.”

We all know we need a little more of that!!
