Business Unusual at Butterbee Farm

The following “Business Unusual” account is part of our new initiative, Collecting in Quarantine. With current mandates for all non-essential businesses to close, business is anything but usual in Maryland. In the Business Unusual series, MdHS is asking business employees, owners, customers, passers-by and neighborhood residents to visually share their experiences during the COVID-19 crisis.

Thursday, April 23, 2020 – On this day, Laura Beth from Butterbee Farm in Pikesville shared the photos below along with the following dispatch:

Because the supply chain from other countries is broken under lock down, the demand for locally grown flowers has skyrocketed. We’re doing our best to keep up while also keeping our employees safe! The photos attached are of our greenhouse harvest, a socially distant team lunch, and a sweet pea harvest.
