Meet Your Newest Market Vendor Highland Hills Farm!



MOUNT VERNON – Flowers bring joy to growers and customers at the Mount Vernon Farmers Market and one of the new flower vendors this year is Highland Hills Farm. The farm’s Tiffany Squires sells many varieties including zinnias, dahlias, sunflowers, snapdragons, cosmos, and gladiolus.
The flower garden started with seeds that were ordered online. For next year Tiffany says they will save and plant some zinnia seeds. They hope to have tulips in the spring.
Highland Hills Farm has seventy acres and is located on Banning Road. In addition to flowers the Squires’ raise cattle and grow hay.
This is her first year growing flowers for the market and Tiffany said, “I have a love for flowers, they bring me joy. Our three girls and my husband help so it is something we can do as a family. I love it.”
The family all helps with planting, cutting, and harvesting. Weeding is a necessary task on the farm but Tiffany says the girls do not like to weed much. They really enjoy coming to the market though on the Public Square each Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.
Tiffany and all the market vendors agree that one of the wonderful things about the market is the opportunity to meet so many great people, many of whom become repeat customers.
