You're still mastering your farming game.
We've been there. We get it. And we can help.
Maybe this is your first season. You aren't quite far enough along in this journey to estimate your future weeks' yield reliably enough for a traditional wholesaler, but you still want to dip your toes into working with florists near you.
Or, maybe you've been doing this for a couple of years and you've worked through your biggest growing challenges and want to focus on increasing your wholesale sales.
We've got you covered.
Why work with Rooted?
Rooted is an end-to-end solution for flower farmers, providing the tools you need to get your blooms into customers' hands. Working with Rooted allows you to spend more time in your fields, and less time on administrative tasks like availability lists, orders, and relationship management.
We're passionate about helping farmers shape their businesses, and are constantly working to develop new tools and systems to make this possible. Here are a few of the Rooted features we're *super* excited to bring you:
- Marketplace Access

- Online Payment
- No more billing florists or collecting uncomfortable IOUs!

- Inventory Management
- Peace out, availability lists.
- Easily post inventory each week - just upload a photo, select your flower, update your quantity, and voila! You’re in business.
- No minimums! Not feeling confident about your yield yet? No problem. List as little as ONE bunch (ten stems) to get started.
- Don’t know it all? You don’t have to! Educate customers (and yourself!) with our pre-populated flower listings (e.g. “Basil hates the cooler!” or “did you remember to sear those poppies?”)
- You're In Control
- Control your relationships - you decide who sees your inventory
- Set your own pricing - you decide how much your flowers are worth. (Need some inside info? We can help with pricing if you aren’t sure.)
- Delivery or farm pick-up? You decide - adjust your settings by customer.
