We are a small scale cut flower farm and floristry business nestling in the beautiful valley of Combeinteignhead only a stone’s throw from the River Teign in South Devon. Every year we grow thousands of heirloom, scented and unusual varieties of flowers for our customers. I began my journey into the world of flowers as a keen gardener, as I began to share my flowers with my friends, this led to my first bouquet sales and I realized the power flowers can have – especially locally grown, scented ones!
Going into business with my husband Giles made sense to us, we have a shared love of the outdoors – curating our land for our sons to inherit and working alongside each other allows us to share the workload. We have three free-range sons who constantly inspire and amaze us every day – we truly believe that we are building something for the future…. a sustainable farm – growing alongside nature.
We grow on approx 2 acres of land and have 6 polytunnels which we use to produce high quality flowers. In season (March-November) our flowers are available to order direct from ourselves. The Flower Farm is an ancient apple orchard. Keen to keep the character and history of these trees we have carefully preserved even the most ancient and we plant our flowers around these beautiful heirlooms. We operate a strict no chemicals policy and are proud of the diverse wildlife we have living on the farm.
Looking ahead to the future we are aware of the huge impact the flower industry has on our planet. We want to promote the benefits of buying locally grown produce, we aim to do this by introducing as many customers as possible to our beautiful flowers, inviting tours onto our farm, holding workshops and educational talks to present first hand what we do and why we do it…
Choosing locally grown flowers means you are supporting true seasonality, reducing air miles from shop bought flown-in blooms and making an eco conscious choice. Our flowers are pesticide free, grown in harmony with nature and they provide homes and food for thousands of insects. The flower field is full of life all year round and creating a wildlife refuge is a theme very close to our hearts
