ABOUT OUR FARM
Foxboro flower farm is as crazy about flowers, as we are about growing gorgeous blooms in a sustainable way. Every decision made on our farm, stems from a place of wanting to leave the earth better than we found it. Whether that is through the use of cover crops, no-till techniques, native plant species, biodiversity and much more. We work with nature, and by doing so, we grow more blooms with less resources needed. Tucked into the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, our farms micro climate allows us to grow heat loving flowers like Dahlias, Zinnias and Celosia, as well as blooms that need a bit more cool weather like peonies and tulips. We believe that local flowers are the best flowers. Grown by a farmer in your community, locally grown flowers not only cuts out the middle man but also the extra resources it takes to get flowers imported to the United States. We love growing cut flowers for our community, especially because our flowers are grown without pesticides so you and your loved ones can safely, smell the roses.
