Pacifica's Christina Stembel Nurtures a Blooming Farmgirl Flowers.

Proteas, berries and candy-cane colors are featured in this winter’s new centerpiece arrangement.


Farmgirl Flowers founder Christina Stembel may have traded the Indiana farm for San Francisco, but she held on tight to her Midwestern work ethic—and, today, her self-funded, socially conscious, direct-to- consumer flower company is a multimillion-dollar industry-disrupting business that ships to the lower 48. What’s next? Stembel has an Eastern distribution center and $1 billion in revenue in her sights. Meanwhile, Farmgirl’s signature burlap-wrapped, hand-tied seasonal bouquets, such as the $168 Fancy Pants arrangement; and holiday showstoppers, including a $350 protea-packed tablescape, are growing a devout following among discerning customers locally and beyond. 855.202.3817
