KB Farms & Roses

We’ve got a long history with roses and our president Robert Kanayama has probably caught his hand on his fair share of their thorns over the years. We asked Robert to share a little bit about the rose, its history with KB Farms and its strong connection to the valentine’s day holiday. Check out what he had to say below. 


I was asked to write a few thoughts on roses for valentine’s day. I usually don’t recommend roses for valentine’s day since they are a bit cliché, but you can’t deny roses are the queen of flowers.  Once upon a time, they were my favorite flower.  As far as beauty, fragrance, and meaning they are hard to beat.  I was so fond of them that my oldest daughter’s middle name is Rose.
