Dahlia Barn has another successful summer in North Bend

The Dahlia Barn has concluded another summer season of farming and summer showcases in North Bend.

The Dahlia Barn, owned and operated by North Bend’s Aimee and Jerry Sherrill, has concluded another summer season of farming and summer showcases.

The Sherrills, who began their business in 2002, run the online flower shop selling tubers directly from the farm to customers. Their original North Bend location now serves as a showcase for many of their flowers, while most of the farming is done at their second farm in Thorpe which they purchased in 2007.

Jerry says it helped to have a larger property of farmland to grow the product in conditions that are ideal for growing strong flower tubers. Originally a you-cut flower business, The Sherrills wanted to emphasize that they are an online business after receiving a lot of attention from being featured on “Gardening with Ciscoe” on King 5 in 2011 and 2013, which brought many customers out to the farm. They were also featured in Sunset Magazine in 2014.

“After the TV show everyone started coming out here, which is great, but you’ve got 30 cars out here and I’ve only got so many flowers,” he said. “Five years ago we quit doing you-cut, that way I can push flowers that I have from my place over east, get those out of here to buy, leaving as many flowers in this garden so people can see them and order the tuber.”

The local business says it is proud to have served the community for the past 16 years. As winter approaches, Jerry and Aimee are preparing for the Northwest Flower and Garden Show in Seattle which will be held Feb. 20-24.
