What was a backyard hobby seven years ago with just Ryan and Gracie has evolved into a growing family of special people that make up Grace Rose Farm. Today we’re introducing you to the men and women who tend to our land, care for our roses and make our farm so wonderful.
Fermin has been with us for five years and leads our field operations. He has 13 years of experience with roses! He harvests 30,000+ roses every week! Fermin loves spending time with his two sons and watching sports. Fermin and his wife are expecting their third son this spring!
Roberto, Ricardo, Carlos and Jesus
We have a wonderful group of men who tend to our roses. They do the planting, weeding, fertilizing, and harvesting. Roberto, Ricardo, Carlos and Jesus are great guys who love learning about our roses and we're so grateful for them!
Hortencia designs bouquets and wraps roses for shipping. She loves to cook and be out in nature with her family. Her favorite rose is Lichfield Angel.
Ana designs bouquets and is a lovely spirit around the farm. She loves pink roses the most and her favorite is Moonlight in Paris.
Araceli makes bouquets and loves all the roses so much. She has five boys and one on the way! Araceli loves cooking and talking to everyone she knows. Francis Meilland is her favorite rose.
Creative + Management
E'Ana is our operations manager who oversees the day to day at the farm. She can do anything from customer service to fulfillment to long term planning and social media. E’Ana recently graduated from college with her business degree and when she’s not at the farm, she loves riding her motorcycle, working out and Disneyland! Read more about E’Ana in our recent blog post celebrating her college graduation here.
Gracie is our creative director and founder. Roses are her first love and is the visionary for our farm. She is working on new ways to expand our brand so more people can experience the joy of growing roses.
Ryan is our president and manages the financial and farming operations at the farm. He has enjoyed scaling the farm from our backyard to the 20 acres it is now. Ryan loves learning and being active in the farming community.
Seraphina, aka Fifi, is our little rosarian! She’s the darling of our farm and our newest addition. Her favorite things are her dolly, petting her kitties and giggling at her dad’s funny faces! She loves pink roses the most and sniffs them with delight.
Buddy, Ellie, and Woody
Our three Great Pyrenees are the real loves of our farm. Everyone adores seeing our dogs on social media and following their lives. Buddy can be seen on the cover of Country Living! Our dogs patrol the farm, but mostly they just play and live the good life.
The Kitties - Our farm is home to 10 cats! Mari, Ruthie, Roxie, Sunny, Teddy, Rosie, Lucy, Loki and Percy are our beloved felines. When we moved to the farm we inherited Canela, who lives in the trees on the farm. Gracie is a cat lover and always has room for more kitties that need a home.
In addition to our amazing team, we work with talented people around the country. Our rose growers, web designers, content writers and creators, marketing partners, customer service team, graphic designers, and farming contractors, while not employees, very much make things happen at our farm and we could not do what we do without them!
