Community Supported Flowers
Our program is based on the community supported agriculture (CSA) model. Members sign up and pay in advance for a share of the coming season’s harvest. At Tanglebloom Flower Farm that means fresh seasonal blooms, grown sustainably in Vermont. Your commitment allows us to purchase seed for new and exciting varieties, farm equipment, and make repairs and improvements. Members share in the risk and reward of farming with us.
We offer spring, summer, and fall flower shares

Frequently Asked Questions
Why a flower CSA?
We appreciate the CSA model for allowing us to connect directly with the people purchasing our blooms. Feedback from members is encouraged because we want to be growing your favorite flowers, not just ours (although we do plenty of that too). It is a useful model for 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 flowers on a regular basis rather than just special occasions.
What if I can’t make it to a pick-up?
If there are a couple times you cannot make it to your regularly scheduled 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. 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. Preservative packets will be available at your pick-up location and 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 after each use.
Do you have CSA options for businesses?
We do! Please contact us to discuss share and delivery options for your business.
