Lovely and local: this week’s bouquet from La Primavera Farms.
This week’s Flower Monday takes us on a journey to where flowers come from (you know, before the stork delivers them to florists). This colourful bouquet came to us fresh from the fields of La Primavera Farms, a Dundas, ON flower farm!
La Primavera Farms has over 40 acres of cut flowers growing on their property in the Ontario green-belt (just imagine how amazing that must smell, people). They hand-cut each bloom when it’s ready, and then send their (beautiful) crop out to local farmer’s markets, which includes the Toronto Flower Market (next held August 9, make it a date).
We chatted with Joanne Feddes, the third generation of her family to work those green acres (they’ve been doing flowers for the past 17 years, FYI), about life on the flower farm, what her favourite flower is, and her most cherished flower related memory.
