Our Flower Farm

We are proud to grow the majority of the flowers we use in our designs in our community. We farm on three properties in the mountains outside of Asheville in the small township of Walnut, comprising about 8 acres. The farm is about 10 minutes from our flowers shop. We are proud to make a case for sustainable agriculture in a former tobacco community. Part of our mission is to create jobs in agriculture and demonstrate pathways for business in rural Appalachia.

Asheville Flowers

YEAR-ROUND GROWING

Carolina Flowers produces blooms year-round, more or less. Peak flowering season runs from March through October, depending on the weather conditions. We plant and tend flowers in the fields during every month, even if the flowers aren’t blooming. During the coldest months, we grow paperwhites and amaryllis indoors and create seasonal wreaths. Our business is designed to support and sustain our employees year-round. We exist to create beauty, but it’s just as important to us to create community.

SMALL FARMING, BIG DREAMS

We believe agriculture can offer a positive future for the town of Marshall, the city of Asheville, and the Western North Carolina region. Our retail shop and our online grocery delivery business are just two of the ways we create jobs and offer the public an opportunity to connect with local agriculture.

Locally Grown Wedding Flowers

WEDDING DESIGN, ANYTIME

We love designing floral arrangements for weddings! The majority of our work uses seasonal flowers from our farm. However, we also know that a wedding is a special once-in-a-lifetime occasion, so we bring blooms in to meet client preferences. In the depths of winter, we complement imported blooms with berries, seed pods and special dried flower treasures.
