This week I visited the Wild Rose Flower Company at Town Farm in Buckinghamshire where horticulturalist, Rosie, runs a flower farm to support and complement the family’s existing farming business.
The farm is approached via a quiet country track.
The Granary is the first port of call when arriving at the farm.
The Wild Rose Flower Company
The hand crafted sign has a quirky play on words.
Inside The Granary there’s a charming collection of handmade and vintage items made by local creatives and independent businesses. It complements the farm’s core values of creating a sustainable business which minimises the effect on the environment.
I love the simple addition of hydrangeas hanging to dry from the rustic roof – both decorative and practical.
After having browsed the beautiful items in The Granary, Rosie showed me the walled garden which resembled a wild flower meadow. There were so many different cottage garden blooms. There were also bee hives, rustic outbuildings, charming greenhouses and plum trees.
I’m not sure how long I spent taking photos. This is the kind of place where time stands still – although I’m sure that working on the flower farm is action packed every single day. Rosie had been busy from early morning cutting and delivering blooms to local businesses.
When I eventually managed to tear myself away from the walled garden I followed Rosie to another outbuilding to select some blooms for my own bouquet. The pretty summer light streamed through the windows.
I even took a photo of what is essentially ‘the bin’! It looked so pretty.
I was sorry to have to leave the farm but luckily I had the most beautiful flowers to arrange and photograph when I arrived home.
Below are some of the details of the individual stems. There were pretty pinks, blues and yellows, dried seed heads and some dramatic shapes.
Here’s a little video tour. I hope you enjoy it.
