About Stow Greenhouses

Stow Greenhouses is owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Dave Buchholz and Barbara Rietscha. In addition to growing and arranging flowers, they are raising three sons. Barbara runs the day-to-day operations of the business and oversees everything from first seeding to final arrangement. Born in PA, Barbara had a circuitous route to flower farming. After graduating from college with a chemistry degree, she moved to Central Africa to teach farmers how to raise fish. After the birth of her 2nd son, she took some time off to raise her 3 sons until she and Dave bought the farm in 2010. Barbara has studied with Erin Benzakein of Floret and completed the program at Rittner’s School of Floral Design in Boston. She uses flowers and herbs grown on her farm as well as things foraged from the property. Her style is organic and natural and she likes to bring the garden to the vase whether it is for a bride, home or office.
