The Farm

Founded in 2002, LynnVale Studios is dedicated to the cultivation of creativity and the human spirit through alternative agriculture and fine art. 

American grown flowers and fine art are together nestled in the middle of an eighth generation family farm in Gainesville, Virginia. 

Here, our hosts Andrea and Lou Gagnon manage a thriving art and design studio, floral design studio and commercial cut flower garden surrounded by 100 acres of forest, pasture and crop land. 

"We are committed to sustainable horticulture and ethical labor practices. We hire local high school students, university interns, stay at home parents and floral and garden enthusiasts. For events, we work with some of the best floral designers in the region. We thank you for supporting our effort to keep our farmland open and productive and for helping us cultivate a creative community."

Each year, LynnVale grows more than 100 varieties of specialty cut flowers, foliages and herbs for sale at farmers markets and to fine florists across the D.C.- metro region. In addition, with Andrea as the studio's creative director, LynnVale provides flowers and arrangements, specializing in eco-friendly events and green weddings.

You'll enjoy every amazing moment of your evening at the Field to Vase Dinner located just outside Washington, D.C. in Northern Virginia. The evening begins with a guided farm tour, where you'll hear flower farming stories from Andrea and Lou and get up close to the best field-grown flowers around. Bring your camera and be prepared to ask lots of questions!

Guests will savor a gourmet, four-course, farm-to-fork meal, sip beverages with a distinct local pedigree, and take home a floral arrangement as a symbolic memento of the evening's theme: Celebrating American Grown Flowers.

You won't want to miss this evening of flowers, food, friendship - and a focus on local agriculture in our country.
