Benevolent Blooms

At Brick Kiln Farms, it’s all about cultivating kindness.

Although Teri Navickas, owner of Brick Kiln Farm, never set out to be a flower farmer, it’s hard for her to imagine any other life. Teri and her husband, Mike, moved to Falmouth from Connecticut in 1985. Her background was in applied design; his was in horticulture. The couple joined forces to leverage their skills and operated a landscape business out of their first East Falmouth home, boasting nine trucks and 22 employees. They specialized in custom, high-end work, primarily in Osterville, New Seabury and Cataumet. Eleven years ago, Teri and Mike purchased what is now Brick Kiln Farm from Constance Barrows. She and her husband, Lewis, had operated under the name Barrows Farm until his death in 1986. According to Teri, Mrs. Barrows recognized the Navickases’ appreciation for the rich farming history of her property and felt confident it would be in good hands with them.
