Dear Customers and Friends,
The member growers of Fair Field Flowers have been proud to provide southeastern Wisconsin with local and sustainably grown cut flowers since 2002.
Since that time, the market for local flowers has seen great changes in both growth and supply, as well as in technologies designed to ease market access. Our member growers have also evolved — several have happily retired, others have transitioned to meet market needs in different ways, and the newest growers are coming into their own, having reaped tremendous knowledge from their seasoned Fair Field grower mentors.
We are announcing the dissolution of Fair Field Flowers as a wholesale distributor of local flowers, effective January 1, 2019.
At the same time, we are proud to announce that the same high quality, locally grown floral product you have enjoyed in the past will remain available through the incredible set of growers that have made up Fair Field Flowers most recently. In this way, we celebrate the close of the pioneering wholesale flower cooperative that has given us wings and look forward to serving you directly through our respective flower farms. We’ll be in touch during the off-season to introduce ourselves and what we offer, as well as a new way of doing business. As lovers and supporters of local flowers, we welcome you also to reach out to us individually for uninterrupted access to the same high quality product you’ve been receiving through Fair Field Flowers.

As independent growers, we remain committed to collaboration and mutual support for the continued expansion of the local flower movement in southeastern Wisconsin. While we can no longer offer one-stop shopping from all of the growers with one contact, we trust that the immediacy of working directly with the growers to meet your specific needs will offer a tremendous advantage in gauging availability. Stick with us – we’re still growing the flowers you need and love.
On behalf of Fair Field Flowers current growers as well as retired pioneer growers, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your loyalty and support over the years and for your continued support of local flowers in the future.
