WHAT IS AVAILABLE?
Our sale, bouquet and event flowers are all seasonal. Which means, whether your scheduling a DIY event, purchasing from our website or retail greenhouse, all the products will be fresh off the farm for that growing season! From rare specialty tulips and daffodils in the spring, to zinnias and cosmos then dahlias and heirloom chrysanthemums in the fall, we grow them all!
WHAT MAKES OUR FLOWERS DIFFERENT?
Locally grown flowers are cut at the last possible moment to meet your event or purchase timing. It's hard to explain how amazing fresh cut flowers are. When you compare local blooms to those that have been shipped hundreds of miles in tight boxes, there really is no contest. We use proper and appropriate post-harvest care methods, but avoid dangerous chemicals. All our soils utilize sustainable agricultural techniques to help preserve the ecosystem that lives within our clay soils. We use these practices so that you can breath deeply and smell them safely. We are part of the growing seed-to-vase movement, and we grow and nurture uncommon and uncommonly beautiful flowers. We have extensive collections of flowers, and we're always adding more to the farm. From romantic sweet peas to hundreds of sunflowers - our flowers are anything but ordinary.
WHAT IF THERE IS A WEATHER DISASTER AND ALL OF YOUR CROPS ARE RUINED?
Our services begin on our growing farm, which isn’t completely protected with low tunnels throughout the growing season. We start off our field rows in tunnels to help harden-off plants to be prepared for seasonal changes. However, we will never sacrifice your event or happiness on the rare occasion that unpredictable weather damages our crops. If our plants fail, we go next to other local growers whom we know and trust. If we can't find what we need at their farms, we go to the regional floral wholesale distributor in Burlington, VT - the same place local conventional florists source all of their flowers from, and we select flowers and greens that make sense for your style and our location. There is no change in price for the addition of bought-in flowers in these circumstances.
HOW DOES THE SUBSCRIPTION & DELIVERY WORK?
Our bouquet subscriptions will be delivered every Sunday! For our subscriptions we include a glass vase, which will be picked up when the next week subscription arrives. That way you simply get the beautiful blooms, a vase and never have to acquire multiple un-used vases! Payment options are easiest on our website, at checkout, however, you may pay with Cash On Delivery.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SEASONAL MARKET BOUQUET AND A SEASON VASED BOUQUET SUBSCRIPTION?
Both products offer seasonal blooms, however the biggest difference is the size of the bouquet, presentation and price! Our seasonal bouquet option factors in the vase, offers a bigger array of blooms, and is ready to be placed for presentation. Our market bouquets are the most popular size for daily appreciation. Think about it being the best size to carry around the park with a loved one, and arrange in a vase at home to enjoy their long-lasting beauty.
WHAT IF I WANT TO INCLUDE FLOWERS FOR AN EVENT THAT YOU DON’T GROW ON THE FARM?
While we grow an impressive array of specialty, seasonal flowers, some varieties are not suited to our climate. In that case, we have the ability to order beautiful blooms from other farms locally, and across the regional market. For example, even though we don’t grow many garden roses on our farm, we love supporting farmer friends and sourcing these gorgeous blooms for them. Our goal is to support local while providing the details your dreaming.
HOW DO I INQUIRE ABOUT A DIY EVENT?
