Foxglove Farmhouse is a cut flower garden in York, Maine lovingly tended to by Elizabeth Brown. At the Farmhouse she never treats soil or flowers with chemicals. Providing blooms that are not only beautiful, but safe to hold in your hands, is the cornerstone to the farm’s growing practices. Elizabeth’s vase arrangements utilize sustainable floristry methods, often designed using floral frogs or chicken wire, and never foam. She is committed to ensuring their floral design reflects the beauty of our local landscape, while protecting the natural resources that inspire us.
During the growing season, flowers are available by joining Foxglove Farmhouse’s annual flower club, a floral CSA that begins in May and ends in October, and by ordering custom vase arrangements or bouquets through the website. Elizabeth also runs floral workshops; covering topics such as centerpiece design, cut flower garden for beginners, seed starting, and sustainable floristry. Workshops can be curated to small groups in someone’s home, for hotel guests, and are offered throughout the year at various locations in the Seacoast for the general public!
