Meet the Maker


Rachel Carpenter is a farmer, educator, herbal creator, writer, and the founder of Good Flower Farm. She became interested in holistic living more than a decade ago, at which time she passionately dove into this realm. Rachel’s passion & love for the earth has sent her on a journey to pursue & understand this connection through years of work on organic farms, teaching environmental & sustainability education at a high school, and studying herbalism & nutrition.

She started Good Flower Farm (as Original Organics Herbals) in 2014 out of an apartment in Minneapolis while working full-time. Years later, she found roots on her first farm property just outside her hometown of Nashville, where she tended a farm organically with her husband for five years, from 2017-2022. Losing her mother and giving birth to her first child in 2021 led to much reflection and ultimately the decision to relocate and fulfill a long-time dream of living near Lake Superior, where summers are milder, cross-country skiing is abundant, and there is a lovely micro-climate for growing.
Summer of 2022 found her family and thus the company relocating to Wisconsin, where she spent her most formative years learning & teaching environmental sustainability and farming. Here she tends a smaller backyard microfarm, much more suited to the intensive, small-scale herb-growing needed for Good Flower Farm formulations. She also opened Good Flower Farm's flagship retail location in downtown Bayfield, along the shores of Lake Superior, in the summer of 2022.
