We’re Homemake Gardens, a family flower farm in Monroe, WA providing fresh cut blooms for the community. Established in 1999, we began as a small flower farm in Kent, WA and over 20 years we’ve supplied fresh cut flowers at local farmers markets.
Our mission is to provide the community access to locally grown fresh quality flowers not just at local farmers markets, but at the convenience of local grocery stores, cafes, bakeries, and online with just a click of a button.
In 1979, Koua and Yeu Hang arrived in the United States as Hmong refugees during the Vietnam War.
Koua was a young man who dreamt of becoming a doctor, he worked as a nurse residing in Rhode Island and later found his calling as a Social Worker. He was a pioneer in translating for the Hmong refugees who arrived in America. Koua married the love of his life, Yeu and eventually settled in Seattle, Washington.
Yeu, a full time stay at home mother taking care of her 8 children, began to grow crops in her small garden to help feed her family. In 1999, her small garden bloomed into a flower farm. Yeu cultivated vegetables and flowers to sell at the local farmers market in Kent, WA. During that time, she also sold her crafted sand animals. Although she loved creating sand animals, the flower business grew in popularity and in 2004, she decided to devote her business solely to flowers.
With the boom of demand of local fresh cut flowers, her children became more inclusive in operations. After years of experience, the children grew a passion for flowers as well.
Koua, is now retired after 38 years of service working in social work. He continues to help Yeu with the flower farm and enjoys going to the local farmers markets to meet customers.
