Leading the charge is LeeAnn Huber - the dahlia hybridizer, educator, flower farmer and entrepreneur behind it all. Prioritizing continual growth in knowledge and practice is our guiding star, and LeeAnn's passion for lifelong learning and applying evidenced based approaches in an agricultural context is embodied in her daily mantra ‘Every day is a school day!’ LeeAnn has amassed a sizable following among fellow cut flower farmers and gardening enthusiasts, where she is known for taking topics head on in a thoughtful and engaging way while sharing her expertise on all things dahlias.
LeeAnn, who’s agricultural heritage spans many generations in the mid-Atlantic region, was raised on a beef cattle farm specializing in cattle breeding. LeeAnn graduated from The Pennsylvania State University with a degree in Animal Sciences and International Agriculture before starting a successful career in Sales and Marketing. Following her promotion to motherhood, LeeAnn left the corporate world and formally incorporated Coseytown Flowers in 2015, turning a hobbyist’s daydream into her full-time business. Located among the gently rolling hills of Greencastle, PA, dahlias were a focal point for Coseytown’s local cut flower sales from the beginning and it wasn’t long before LeeAnn began a hybridization program to cultivate her own varieties, which are now sold across the United States and Canada.
