A peacock symbolizes integrity and the beauty that we can achieve when we decide to show our true colors and pursue our passions. When deciding to start Peacock Farm and Flower, this was the first time that I was truly following something that brought me joy. Seeing my garden in bloom the first spring let me know I was exactly where I needed to be.
"The Peacock Farm" is actually the name of the farm where my great grandfather lived and gardened his entire life. As a child, this place seemed to be straight out of a fairy tale complete with wandering peacocks, lily ponds, cactus courtyards, hidden wooded walking paths, and wild flower meadows.
He left a legacy not only as a gardener but as a steward of the land, building walking trails and parks for the public as well. This is the very same place where I planted my first roses as a flower farmer.
My grandmother lives there now and happily looks after them for me. Having taken all the skills and inspiration from multiple generations of family living on the farm, it only seemed right to pay homage to such a special place.

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mauri Williams.
Mauri, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I have always loved flowers and gardening. It was about a year ago that I had become so engrossed with my gardening hobby and was being encouraged by friends, family, and passerby’s admiring my garden to consider making it into a career. I wasn’t really too sure about what that would look like or how it would happen but I knew that I wanted to grow cut flowers. After exhaustive research, I learned from most sources that it would take about three years before I would know if I was to be a successful flower farmer, so I decided to jump in. During the shelter in place order, I was enjoying my first spring. I was cutting buckets of flowers every day and I wanted to share them.

The bright blue Suzuki truck filled with buckets of flowers became a constant at pop-ups, festivals and farmers markets the last couple of years. And then there was Tucker, the now 9-year-old yellow Lab who served as the namesake and mascot for Tucker’s Flower Stop.
The brainchild of Andrew Rotzoll, the flower truck business was so successful that he had to rely on family members, especially dad Jeff, to help out.
But with Andrew in college and Tucker ready to retire to a soft dog bed at home, the Rotzolls put the truck up for sale, determined to pass it on to someone who would love and grow the flowers-on-wheels business.
They eventually connected with Mauri Williams, an Austin transplant who makes her home in the Cultural District. The 27-year-old loves gardening in general and flowers in particular. To stretch her growing space, she plants not only in her yard but in the “hell strips” along the curb. (She has offered to do the same for her neighbors.)
