Our Flower Subscriptions are available for four weeks in May and again from late June until the end of September. We plan the subscription each winter and choose a wide variety of blooms that have the best vase life and unfussy appeal. Spring has the most charm with unique varieties of tulips and daffodils, while Summer and fall offer the most abundance and variety for flower lovers. Each week we create a different colour palette and feel based on what is the freshest in the field.
What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture is a model where shareholders (the customer) invest in a farm at the beginning of the season and share in the products grown on the farm as they ripen or bloom. Our Seasonal Colour Flower Subscription works as a CSA where our clients purchase shares in the fall and winter, and receive flowers throughout the growing season. This model is incredibly helpful for farmers who have a lot of upfront and early season costs but very little cash flow at that time. This model also helps share the risk and reward of farming. Small farms do not have crop insurance or any guarantee that a crop will succeed. They are highly susceptible to climate uncertainty. The CSA model creates connections within the community that keep small farms in business. As land stewards, small farms improve biodiversity, protect our water and ecological resources. Our CSA customers directly support our small farm and, in turn, the ecosystem and ecological health of our community.
Flower Subscription Disclaimers:
The Colour Farm will work hard to ensure that we provide the highest quality blooms and arrangements to serve the membership of the local flower subscription to the best of our ability.
Mother nature has the final say in what flowers are available during the season and that late season starts, early frost, pests, animals and other natural occurrences might change what is available.
The Colour Farm does not offer refunds. Flower Subscriptions may be transferred to another person, but The Colour Farm is not responsible for finding a substitute.
Late or missed pick-up bouquets will be available for 24 hours after the pick-up date and time at the pick-up location. Refunds will not be issued for missed pick-ups.
