Nicolette Irving, Flourish Flower Farm

Flourish Flower Farm Stand
Grant Award: $8,000

Flourish Flower Farm used their 2020 AgOptions grant to purchase a walk-in cooler which enabled them to increase the quality and quantity of the flowers they provided to florists, wholesale customers, and wedding clients.

They are ready to expand into local retail sales and they plan to use their grant this year to construct a parking area and a 10′ x 10′ farm stand where they will offer self-service flowers. The farmstand will increase their exposure in the local market and Niki anticipates sales to increase by 25% in the first year.
