WHY BUY LOCAL

Almost 80 percent of the fresh flowers sold in the United States and Canada are not grown in North America. They are grown in Ecuador, Brazil, or Columbia and shipped to the US where they are sold to brokers and wholesellers. The flowers from other countries might have been cut from the fields 8 days or more before you even see them. No wonder flower arrangements never last very long!

BETTER SMELL

Many commodity-type flowers like Roses for example, have been bred over the years by the big production growers in the US and other countries for uniformity – they want them to fit into a box and often those “over-bred” flowers lose their natural fragrance during the breeding process. Bloomin’ Idiots Flowers produces flowers – mostly from seeds started in our greenhouse, in a wide range of colors, forms, and scents. Bottom Line: Our flowers smell like God created them

to smell!

RESPONSIBLY GROWN

We strive to produce flowers using responsible farming methods that encourage important soil health, and water conservation.

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL ECONOMY

The production and sale of locally-grown cut flowers contribute to our communities economy, provide employment, and contributes valuable agriculture experience to many.
