Are you buying local?  Your customers are. 

Today's consumer is looking for a local, more sustainable product for their money.  Representing more than 75% of the flowers grown in the United States, California's flower farms often serve as the "local" choice for retailers throughout the United States. 

Why buy CA Grown flowers?

When you buy California cut flowers you are buying flowers that . . .

  • Meet the strictest growing standards in the world
  • They were raised in a world-class year-round environment perfect for growing hundreds of varieties of flowers, including specialty, exotic botanical and high quality every day cut flowers such as; gerbera daisies, roses, tulips, lilies, calla lilies, iris, larkspur, protea, gladiolus and many many more
  • Were probably still in the field just 24-48 hours ago

Featuring  to Grow Your Bottomline

Let the CCFC help you feature your California Flower Farmer!

As the organization representing over 275 flower farms in the state of California, we have collected quite a bit of resources designed to help retailers relate their flowers back to the farm.  Consumers are becoming more and more conscious about the importance of knowing where their products come from.  California flower farms are proud to help answer that question, even if that means in person! 

Retailers interested in connecting the flowers they buy with the people that grow them are encouraged to "feature their farmer."  The CCFC has made this introduction easier through a video series called "GrowTube."  GrowTube is a short YouTube video of life and style of the California flower and greens growing process, narrated by the farmer themselves!  Embed these videos on your website, blog or share them with your customers on Facebook

You can also look through the Commission's directory of flower farmers to gather information and images that you would find relevant to building your own "feature the farmer" campaign!  Do not hesitate to contact the CCFC staff with any additional questions.
