Sourcing Standards

"Small is all," we say."

We carefully select food from small- to medium-sized farms, who are operating ethically. As we collaborate to predict growing seasons and the demands of our farm-to-table supporters, it means greater stability for our producing partners while ensuring that you receive the best that your local area has to offer.

We are based locally near the greenhouses

It's not local when garden center trucks travel 1,500-3,000 miles on average to deliver your plants from far away brokers. We aim to keep our greenhouses under 150 miles* (often much less), away from the growers which results in reduced pollution, plant waste and damages, and lower the amount of time the plant is in transit. 

We support small

By distributing plants grown by smaller farmers, we are supporting the family owned plant farms that helped grow the foliage industry since the 50's and 60's. 

We Want You to Understand Where Your Plants Comes From.

In terms of traceability, it would mean that you could enter one of our greenhouses, and we would be able to identify the person who grew it. You can also learn more about our awesome farmers by visiting our growers pages.

We Support Increasing Farmer Payments

Our farmers earn double through working with us compared to when selling to traditional large box retailers! We accomplish this by sourcing locally directly from the farmers, eliminating multiple deliveries, packaging, and subscription fees. 

In any case, we hold all of our growers to the same high standards so our customers can enjoy ethically grown plants from small farms across America.
