We are an organic flower farm operating on 4 acres adjacent to the St. Agatha forest (ESPA). We grow bulk flowers for designers and florists, people doing their own weddings and events, floral bouquet subscriptions and PYO flowers for flower lovers everywhere.
We grow flowers in 4 primary fields, including 2 fields of perennials and woodies. We practice regenerative agriculture and sustainable harvesting of woodies and other materials from our adjacent forested areas. We have one large hoop house where we seed most of our spring transplants, and over winter early spring blooming flowers.
We sell in an online wholesale cut flower marketplace in Toronto. In 2022 we will be setting up a new cut flower collective where multiple growers will sell their flowers online for designer pickup at our farm. We hold multiple on-line retail shops for seedling sales, subscriptions, seasonal décor items etc. We host pick-your-own customers 2 days a week, and hold multiple ‘work bees’ annually at peak times where volunteers work for the day in exchange for plant material and flowers.
