Flowercart

Fairest Flowers Farm has a Flowercart at the side of the road in central Rhode Island. Pick up a handful or call ahead for special orders. I sell cut flowers to both individuals and to floral designers. Customers can place orders for custom work and weddings. I do not deliver or set up events at this time, but floral work is carefully packaged so customers can easily transport buckets, arrangements, and bouquets.

Twelve years ago, my four teenagers were still growing up, and on a beautiful autumn day when my garden was flush with blooms, I decided to take some jars of flowers down to the end of our driveway and placed them on a little old bench for $5.00 each. The next year, I used a shortened up twin size bed, and a few years later, this wonderful cart idea came to life with its advantageous waterproof roof, sunproof walls, and wheels for transportation.

Originally, the base was a farm cart built by Arvo Nieme (b. 1918) from an old broken down delivery truck his dad had on his farm. Yes, a hundred years ago! Arvo used his adaptation for hauling vegetables from his hundred acre field in Foster, RI. Our Ed transformed it into a protective shelter for the flowers of the day using all recycled materials. The windows were purchased from Rudy’s Restoration Supply in Brooklyn, CT.

MAYBE YOU NEED FLOWERS

Or maybe you need peace and quiet. Or solace. Or to give solace. Or pretty. Everyday is a little different at the cart, but it is always a refuge. It’s located in the middle of Rhode Island on a minor road in the shade. Whatever your reason, it’s a good one to stop by! You can buy one flower. You can buy a hundred flowers.

The cart is usually set up flower bar style featuring blooms grown here as well as supplemental blooms from market and foraged greens, and prices are indicated in each bucket. The best time to come is in the morning, and bring a jar or bucket containing water to keep your blooms fresh for their journey. If you are looking for something specific, please call. I post what’s blooming on my instagram, and you can easily check that by scrolling down a little further; you’ll see the feed.
