Ranburne, Alabama, family turns dairy farm into plant nursery, café and community space

In east Alabama, just miles from the Georgia border, is the tiny town of Ranburne. The community of fewer than 500 isn’t known by many outside of Cleburne County, but in March 2020 local couple Taylor and Cole Gibbs gave Alabamians a reason to take notice. They opened The Barn of Blooms. a plant nursery and community gathering space selling everything from seeds to shade trees – all grown by local farmers.
