Our Story

Over the years not only our roses have grown but so have our ideas and visions. 

Owners Little Rose Field

Farm & Volunteering

The heart of our little business – Our fields. Having started with one little plot of land on which we planted Rosa damascena we have grown over the years and added more variety. An important part of our farm has always been sharing this experience with others.

Featured Roses

Famous for the Bulgarian Rose Valley is the vibrant pink Rosa damascena. However, in recent years the delicate white Rosa alba with its more subtle lemony scent has gained popularity.

Rosa damascena

This vibrant pink rose with its distinct heavy floral smell is the signature rose of the famous Bulgarian Rose Valley and the basis for rose essential oil.

Rosa alba

This white beauty is pure joy to pick as the flowers are more grippy and yet the oil content is much lower than in Rosa damascena making this essential oil even more precious. 

Rosa canina

Widely known as “Dog Rose” this tough and fast growing shrub rose is mainly used for its fruits and not flowers – The rose hips are dried or pressed into the fatty oil. A valued oil for skin care – But not to be confused with essential oil of rose.

Rose Harvest 2019

Magnificent views are just one of the perks of getting up early and picking this small but absolutely beautifully located field. Growing every year and adding new locations to our farm means more coordination with picking the fields. 2019 Harvest has been a whirlwind of a year. Thanks to all the amazing help we had from all over the world we managed to wrap up the harvest successfully. 

Rose Picking 2018 – Special year

This year was truly special to us – Was it an exceptionally high yield? No, not really. Were the fields in mint conditions? No, not really. But all that didn’t matter much this year – As we welcomed our new addition to the family.

Rose Picking 2017 – Rich harvest

Later than the last years but richer than ever – and not just in yield but also in sharing with volunteers – this year was truly special. As we expected the harvest to start a little earlier we had a great group of helpers eager to pick with no roses to pick yet – So we made good use of the time and dedicated some joined workforce to one of our fields that has many Black locust trees growing in between the roses as it is next to a natural forest.

Hot and dry September

With a manageable size and magnificent lake view it is pure joy to work on our new field. Although the thick and lush bushes had suffered from the severe drought this summer, they have stayed strong and produced new shoots from the ground.

Rose Picking 2016 – Welcome everybody

Another wonderful picking season has come to an end. Many guests from around the world surprised us this year. Thanks to Virginijas interview on the Lithuanian Blog “Euroblogas” we welcomed several visitors from Lithuania for the first time. It seems like we are becoming popular in our village for having unexpected guests: More and more locals find themselves with the task of bringing our guests over to our house. “I think these people are looking for you” was a common phrase we heard this year.

Rose Picking 2015 – Be quick before they’re gone

This year you had to be right on time to make it for the harvest. It was a rather short season and let’s say “relaxed” since nature has decided to give the roses a little rest and not produce too many buds. Luckily, all our guests got a chance to experience rose picking.

Rose Picking 2015 here we come

Our roses started blooming, it’s time to pick these beautiful blossoms! Let’s see what this year’s harvest will bring us.

And the picking goes on…

Already worried in April that the roses might start blooming any time now due to the short and mild winter, plenty of rain and little sun kept the harvest going. Our longest picking season didn’t faze our guests: This year’s picking season was very Japanese having Yumi and Yuri as our guests.

Airport Event 2014

The third year in row, we welcomed tourists at the Sofia and Burgas airport with a freshly picked rose for two days during picking season.
