Inspirational Blossoms Each week, John and Anna Beiler fill their stand with beautiful fresh and field cut flowers from their eastern Lancaster County farm. In addition to their varieties of seasonal stems, the Beiler’s also offer select house plants, herbs, vegetables, and succulents to be used as starter plants in home gardens. If you’re on the hunt for flowers, you can pick a single stem, a bunch, or a pre-made bouquet.
