Bob Wollam [farm owner] 

Bob is the farm’s guiding light. he started growing cut flowers in 1988.  with the gardening genes of his grandparents he’s turned these 11 acres into fields of beautiful varieties. He’s full of knowledge and great stories.

Bob splits his time between the farm and dc where he's resided for 28 years as a community activist, husband, and father. He is married to Anne Montgomery, a longtime friend. they were the first to be married in the farm’s new pavilion in 2015.  

Hillary Gottemoeller [business manager / lead designer]

Hillary came to Wollam Gardens with a background in publishing, content management, and client relations, and a strong interest in learning how to run a flower farm. She has applied her corporate skills to handling the farm's business logistics and communication, engaging with clients ranging from designers and retailers to brides, but she most enjoys being in the field and in our outdoor "studio", engaged in creative and nurturing endeavors.
