Finding Local flowers Near you
If you aren't local to the Grand Junction area and are looking for your own local flower farmer, I have 3 great resources for you to check out!
The Association for Specialty Cut Flower Growers (ASCFG) hosts their own search engine for the public featuring all of their member farms (of which I am one!): https://localflowers.org/find-flowers/
Slow Flowers, which is a membership group dedicated to using and sourcing local and american-grown flowers, made up of flower farmers, floral designers, and wholesalers. https://www.slowflowers.com/
Floret (yes, the same one featured on the magnolia network and where I learned how to flower farm, thanks to erin and her online workshop) has a collective with an interactive map showing flower farms, farmer-florists, and related businesses. https://www.floretflowers.com/directory/
I hope you're able to find a local flower source near you so you too can enjoy the beauty of hard-to-ship varieties and keep your environmental impact as low as possible!
Until Next Time,
