Sarah Ryhanen is the custodian of two of our favourite things out there right now: artisanal soap brand Saipua and the World’s End farm. Trading in the merciless art world of New York to grow flowers in the beautiful countryside further upstate, she’s basically living our dream.
Articulate and thoughtful, she is also capable of plucking great soundbites out of thin air (has there ever been a more perfectly succinct answer to why flowers make such great gifts than the one she gives at the end of this piece?). More so than this however - or perhaps because of this - what resonates is an overwhelming sense of the values, passions and work ethic that she pours into every aspect of her flower-filled life.
We were thrilled to delve into her background and the two unique projects to which she is currently devoting her life.
