Community Supported Flowers
Following the community supported agriculture (CSA) model, members sign up for a share of our coming season’s harvest. At Tanglebloom Flower Farm that means bouquets or buckets of fresh seasonal blooms, grown sustainably in Vermont.
Your support allows us to trial exciting new varieties and make farm improvements and investments. In this way, members share in the risk and beautiful rewards(!) of farming with us.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why a flower CSA?
We appreciate the CSA model for allowing us to connect directly with the people choosing our blooms, and we encourage member feedback. It's also a useful model when growing on a small scale, enabling us to plan well and make practical use of garden space. Ultimately, we also support the idea of people enjoying seasonal flowers on a regular basis, rather than just special occasions.
What if I can’t make it to a pick-up?
We'll do our best to accommodate a location change with advance notice. If you will be out of town feel free to have a friend or neighbor pick up your flowers - no need to tell us in advance. Flowers unclaimed after 24 hours will be donated.
Do you offer payment plans?
In order to make local flowers affordable, we offer the option to pay for shares in two separate installments. Your first payment due at sign-up is 50% of the total. The balance can then be paid on or before the date of your first pick up. Please contact us if you would like to set up a payment plan.
What’s the best way to care for my flowers?
Our flowers are grown, harvested and handled to provide the longest vase life possible. Simply give stems a fresh cut at an angle with sharp scissors and remove any leaves that will be below the water line. Place in a clean vase of fresh cool water. Floral preservative can be added if desired. Freshen the water every 1-2 days (or as often as you can manage). Display out of direct sunlight and away from ripening produce (like bananas). A clean vase is imperative for longevity - give it a good scrub or run it through the dishwasher between uses.
Do you have CSA options for businesses?
We do! Please contact us to discuss options for your business.
