Britton and Walter are the owners and growers of Prospect Hill Flower Farm, located in Louisa County, near Richmond, Virginia. Now in their eighth year, this husband and wife team grow on about an acre. They love that their "office" is their fields and getting their hands in the soil!
Walter is from Bolivia and they met while Britton was there with Peace Corps. After working in Bolivia for many years in agriculture (Walter) and international development programs (Britton), they decided to move to the U.S. to start their own farm.
Walter's education is in agriculture and he has worked extensively with commercial vegetable farms. Britton has a background in business and grew up around flowers. Britton's mother, an avid rose gardener, arranger, and former flower show judge, is an indispensable resource and flower mentor.
