Dandy Farmer is a Brooklyn, NY based plant studio, making exclusive modern bonsai gardens trained inside handmade planters. Our plants are individually selected and slowly nurtured to bring out their best characteristics, making each one distinctive. They even get named (yes, like pets!).

Dandy Farmer began in 2016 as a way to bring the outdoors closer to our private spaces and enhance city living. Since studying in Tokyo, Dandy Farmer has been inspired by the mindfulness and attention to nature seen even among this city's busy dwellers. Tucked away in alleys and windowsills, we realized nature's positive, healing force could come in tiny packages. Pausing for a brief moment to mentally sit under the canopy of a miniature maple could take us miles away from the noise of the city commute. Dandy Farmer taps into bonsai as a way to transport the imagination - to the woods or open fields it represents, and scales it to the palm of your hands. We believe no plant is too small to help us stay grounded and connected with the land.

Enlighten the small corners of your home with life and slow down with nature's meditative calm. Hear more about our bonsai journey.
