A Little About Ivy and Oak Farm
...creating love notes from the garden
- WHY CHOOSE LOCAL? -
When you purchase our flowers, you're helping support a local business and community member. Did you know that 80% of the cut flowers sold in the USA are imported from other countries? This means that typical grocery store flowers have traveled thousands of miles to reach your table, often cut a week or more before you even buy them, and are typically drenched in chemicals to help them survive the journey and pass strict Customs inspections. If you've ever wondered why a lot of those flowers have a chemical smell to them, now you know.
Our flowers go from our fields to your tables with zero pesticides or chemical treatments. Our flower fields also support a diverse ecological system, benefiting our local pollinators, birds, and wildlife (Peter Cottontail is even known to make an appearance).

- A LITTLE ABOUT US -
Ivy and Oak Farm is owned by Lauren. After moving to our 45 acre property in North Carolina, I knew I wanted to start a business that allowed me to utilize some of our land. After reading Vanessa Diffenbaugh's book The Language of Flowers, it clicked that starting a flower farm and designing based on floriography was the path I wanted to pursue. I've always adhered to organic growing practices, but Ivy and Oak Farm became Certified Naturally Grown in 2021, furthering our commitment to never use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or chemicals in our fields.
Floriography is the driving force behind our custom florals and every day arrangements. Every flower and herb has its own meaning and our flowers are an unspoken language of botanical poetry to the recipients of Ivy and Oak Farm florals.
