4 New Farms Earn American Grown Certification

Farms Large and Small See Value, Benefits to Certification

Four new flower farms have recently officially become Certified American Grown, joining a cadre of 60 certified farms nationwide. These farms vary in size and in the varieties of flowers they grow, from peony growers in Alaska to novelty flower farmers known for their agritourism.

The newly certified farms are: Cuts of Color, Weimar, Texas; Stone Circle Peonies, Homer, Alaska; Red Twig Farms, New Albany, Ohio; and Boreal Peonies, Fairbanks, Alaska.

Earning recognition as Certified American Grown helps retailers, wholesalers and florists connect their customers with flowers grown right here in the United States and guarantees their customers that the flowers they’re bringing home or giving as gifts were grown by an American flower farmer, all points not lost on the newly certified.

And flower farmers whose farms have earned certification say it lends credibility to their efforts, connects them to new wholesale and florist clients and makes a positive statement to consumers, more and more of whom are seeking out homegrown products.

Four new certified farms, dozens of reasons to get on board.
