Flowers from the Farm is a multi award-winning, not-for-profit, co-operative of British cut flower growers with over 500 active members across the UK.
WE AIM TO
- encourage more people to grow cut flowers for market in Britain
- promote British flowers
- foster friendship and sharing through meetings, activities and communication.
Today 90% of the flowers sold through UK florists, supermarkets and wholesalers are imported not just from Holland but flown from as far afield as Ecuador, Colombia, Kenya and even Ethiopia. Flowers from the Farm aims to reduce travel miles by promoting locally-grown flowers and developing a network of British cut flower growers across the country.
For three special days this August, over 100 of our members will be opening their gates to visitors for the first ever Flower Farmers’ Big Weekend in events across the country.
Flowers from the Farm members have created this event to showcase their cut flower farms at their blooming best at the height of a British summer, and to offer the public a chance peek behind the scenes of our award-winning artisan movement on farms, allotments and in cutting gardens of every shape and size.
