If you’ve never given much thought to where the flowers you buy for special events, holidays, get-well greetings, or “just because” come from, you may be surprised to know that it’s highly likely those blooms were imported from somewhere overseas. Fortunately for Colorado, more and more consumers have become more eco-conscious, a trend that has seen the local flower market bloom, with a steadily growing number of flower farms sprouting up all over the state.
Supporting these local farms not only enriches a community economically, but it provides customers with a larger variety of flowers and eliminates the problems of supply chain glitches that could leave you with last-minute shortages on your wedding day.
Buying flowers fresh from the field also means buying more seasonal flowers that will have a longer vase life. Support local agriculture by purchasing flowers from one of these farms from around the state.
