OREGON CITY, Ore. — This year, Oregon Floral Farms celebrates its tenth year of supplying custom and creatively hand-tied organic floral bouquets to customers throughout the region. And, as they continue to grow flowers, so does their business grow. While their hand-tied organic floral bouquets have received much attention over the past 10 years, they have evolved into a supplier of conventional/mainstream and hand-tied bouquets as well.
The farm’s owners and growers have been farming since 1985; they are the second generation of a floral farming family and have been practicing Earth-friendly agriculture from the onset.
To this day, the family does it all. Clifford Gobreski is the flower growing manager and business operation manager, while his wife, Kristin, focuses on innovative floral design and customer support.
All farming and growing is done on 20 plus acres in the Willamette Valley. Of these 20 acres, 3.5 are certified organic. Clifford and Kristin have a commitment to the land and to following environmentally- sound farming practices which maintains the quality of water and soil.
“We are so excited to celebrate 10 years of providing these custom floral bouquets throughout the region,” Clifford says. “And, we plan to continue to grow and to pledge continued quality to our existing and future customers. I believe what makes our customers come back again and again is our hand-tied bouquets; they are never machine-wrapped like so many other floral bouquets are.”
In fact, Oregon Floral Farms has just launched a new web site to showcase their wholesale flowers, wedding flowers, organic bouquets, and more.
Oregon Floral Farms is a USDA-certified organic grower of cut flowers and bouquets. They grow, design and ship all year round. To date, the farm’s main focus has been the Northwest region of the country, but they now have the means to ship to other U.S. regions as well.
When an order is due to ship, their crew hand picks the flowers. The flowers are then placed in clean water during transport to their packaging facility where they are bunched, stems recut, and placed back in water for initial hydration. The flowers remain in water and are delivered by their transportation team — fresh from their farm to their customers’ distribution centers and stores.
