Q. I’M A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER, MAY I PHOTOGRAPH YOUR FLORA & FAUNA?

A. Yes! Contact us a few weeks in advance, so we can set aside a quiet hour in the field for you. We request proper crediting of Lindell Flower Farm in any publications.

Q. IS THE FARM AVAILABLE TO USE AS A BACKDROP TO ENGAGEMENT, MATERNITY, FAMILY PHOTO SESSIONS?

A. Unfortunately not … as much as folks envision a field full of flowers our farm is nothing of the sort! A working flower farm is in a state of continuous planting & harvesting & often has rows consisting of baby seedlings, post-harvest stems with no blooms & lots of weeds!

A. Possibly! Contact us as far in advance as possible so we can pencil you in around our commitments – We love creating artful, inspired designs & adore collaborating with like-minded vendors!

A. Possibly! Send us the specifics … we love supporting our local community & donate as much as is possible each year.

A. We are working on it! We anticipate one unpaid farmer / florist internship position for the 2019 season. Details coming soon.

WEDDINGS & EVENTS

Q. DO YOU OFFER FULL SERVICE WEDDINGS?

A. No, not yet … our tiny team & tight farming schedule simply don’t allow for full service yet; 2019 we’ll continue offering all Personals aka ‘Wear & Carry’ florals plus our Botanicals by the Bucket for all of your DIY floral-filled dreams.

Q. DO YOU HAVE A MINIMUM PURCHASE REQUIREMENT?

A. We don’t enforce a minimum purchase & we pride ourselves with catering to folks with all budgets.

Q. DO YOU DESIGN STRICTLY WITH YOUR OWN GROWN & FORAGED MATERIALS?

A. We sure do! That’s what makes us special … everything you purchase from Lindell Flower Farm is an honest, true representation of our farm, our family & the climate here, Litchfield County’s Northwest Hills in New Hartford Connecticut.

BOTANICALS BY THE BUCKET

Q. HOW MANY FLOWERS ARE IN YOUR BOTANICALS BY THE BUCKET?

A. We use 3.5 Gallon buckets & fill each with approximately 70 stems per bucket. Our buckets are grower’s choice & contain a perfect ratio of flowers to foliage.

Q. I’M CONSIDERING DIY’ING MY WEDDING, CAN YOU HELP ME DETERMINE HOW MANY BUCKETS OF FLOWERS I NEED?

A. We’re not able to provide DIY design consultation services & recommend purchasing a sample bucket prior to your event to ensure you’ll have enough product to cover your floral recipes.

Q. HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I PICK UP MY BOTANICALS BY THE BUCKET TO ENSURE I HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO DIY?

A. We recommend pick-up the day prior to your event.

Q. WHERE SHOULD I STORE THE FLOWER-FILLED BUCKETS & RESULTING DIY DESIGNED ARRANGEMENTS?

A. Flowers need to be kept cool & out of direct sunlight. A dark air-conditioned room or a cool basement is ideal. Oh & never put them in a standard home refrigerator! Florist coolers have specially calibrated cooling / humidity standards completely different from the fridge in your kitchen!
