Why Small Farms?
Flowers you can feel good about
So does your farmer
Have you ever wondered where those flowers in your grocery store come from?
Chances are, they were cut weeks before you scooped them up, and were sourced from an industrialized operation halfway across the world.
Let’s take a look at the impact of
the other guys…
Industrialized operations grow flowers bred to live for days (or weeks!) out of water. (Often, the fragrance is bred out to extend shelf life and replaced with perfume!)
Studies show that these imports can include a cocktail of 100+ pesticides and preservatives to help them survive. These pesticides impact the health of workers, local communities growing the flowers and florists handling the flowers.
Conventional farming techniques – the use of chemicals to fight pests and weeds – increases greenhouse gas emissions, disrupts microorganisms, leads to water pollution, and soil erosion.
