We are excited to be CA Grown™! The "CA Grown™" campaign is a true public-private partnership. It is supported by the state and federal governments, as well as by the hundreds of growers who provide Californians with food, clothing, shelter and fiber. The campaign is also working with hundreds of stores throughout the state to promote California grown products.
FARMERS' WEST is proud to be the 1st flower grower to be certified American Grown!
American Grown certified is much more than just a certification, it is a brand that unifies a diverse coalition of U.S. flower farms across the country dedicated to providing customers with fresh, beautiful domestically grown flowers.
The American Grown brand communicates the domestic origins as well as the high quality, freshness and consistency of the flowers and foliage we grow.
The Certified American-Grown logo assures the floral consumer of:
Origin: Flowers and foliage are grown in the U.S. by American farmers.
Assembly: All ingredients in mixed bouquets are 100% grown and assembled in the U.S.
