Flower SHARES | 2018

 

Bundles of fresh, local, organically-grown flowers through the season. Adorn your home or office with vibrant bouquets each week.

Our Flower Shares are for flower lovers who want to enjoy local, beautiful blooms throughout the spring, summer and fall. Because your flowers come to you directly from our farm, you will receive the freshest blooms and a diversity that that surpasses the standard grocery store fare.

We gravitate towards blooms with unique colours, textures, and fragrance – and we’re sure that you’ll love them just as much as we do!

Check out our flower harvest calendar for some of the diversity that you can expect to receive this season.

What you get:

  • Weekly bouquet of seasonal flowers from our farm
  • Tips on caring for your flowers, to extend the vase life
  • Natural colours, chemical-free blooms, sweet fragrances

WHERE & WHEN TO PICK UP YOUR FLOWERS

Our Flower Shares can be picked up at 4 locations:

  • On the farm (near Iona Station / Shedden) Friday afternoon and Saturday morning 
  • St. Thomas: tentatively Saturday morning
  • London: tentatively Thursday afternoon
  • Kilworth: tentatively Thursday afternoon

We’ll deliver to a central pickup location in town, to save you the trip out to the farm (though… we hope you’ll come to see us here sometimes too!) Home delivery is also an option - learn more about our delivery zones here. We’ll set definite pickup times closer to the start of the harvest season.

Our members' feedback:

“It’s so nice to have flowers in the kitchen throughout the spring and summer. They really brighten the place up, and your flowers always last a long time.”

“They’re so cheery. In addition to my weekly bouquet, I like getting extra flowers every week to share with others. I love seeing how flowers lift their spirits.”

“I love how fresh your flowers are. They have a vibrance that imported flowers don’t have. It’s almost like they’re glowing.“

Flowers by the Bucket

Colour-coordinated combinations of flowers, with 7 – 10 bunches of flowers per bucket (~ 8 – 12 stems per bunch, depending on the variety).

Available on a weekly basis, or for special events, for you to design your own arrangements. We request a minimum of 2 weeks advance notice, with more notice being preferable.

We take requests for particular colours / palettes and types of flowers, but cannot guarantee that we’ll be able to meet the exact requests (due to factors beyond our control, namely: weather). We will fill your order, but may need to substitute other flowers or complementary colours, depending on what is harvestable in the field that week. We promise that you’ll receive beautiful flowers in a beautiful palette!

Flowers by the Bucket: $65 

Greens by the Bucket: $50 – 65, depending on varieties

Contact us to place an order for Flowers by the Bucket.

More FEEDBACK

I’m loving the extra-large bouquet option. I’ve been splitting each bouquet into a few vases each week, so I can have flowers in the kitchen, the living room, at my desk, and by my bed.”

“My kids each take a flower from the bouquet every week to keep in a little vase by their bed. I didn’t realize how much it would mean to them! They don’t want to let the old ones go… the only way we can make it work is with the promise of a new flower when we pick up that week’s bouquet.

 

Flower Shares are a form of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). Consumers support a local farm and what it produces, by buying a share of the harvest early in the season. The farmer uses the advance funds as working capital for seed, supplies, repairs, and labour.

In return for the early-season support, the farmer prepares a share of the harvest (in this case: a bouquet of flowers) for members each week through the growing season. We add extra value to our Flower Shares, and reserve unique blooms and specialty flowers for our Flower Share members.
