Since we opened our doors in 2016 we've had the opportunity to provide American grown flowers for weddings and events throughout the Roaring Fork Valley, Beavercreek and Steamboat Springs. We've gotten our feet wet growing over 150 varieties of annuals, perennials and bulbs and began a relationship with Whole Foods selling 100% Carbondale grown fresh cut bouquets.
As we look ahead to the future of Modern West Floral Co. we look back on the founding values of why we wanted to start this floral story and we have decided it’s time to focus on what we absolutely care about most - seasonal, responsible and locally grown cut flowers. With this in mind, we have decided to take 2019 to go all in and focus 100% of our energy into the Modern West Floral farm here in Carbondale.
During this time, the MWFC studio will take a break from weddings, events, and local deliveries to give the farm our full attention. In the end, this will mean a more bountiful studio to re-launch down the road. But for now our road leads to the soil and that’s where we’ll be!
We will continue to sell wholesale cut flowers and foliage to florists and other industry professionals throughout the 2019 summer/fall season. You’ll also find our market bouquets returning to our local Whole Foods store in Basalt next June. If you’re interested in our wholesale availability for 2019 please get in touch next year!
Huge thanks to all who have supported us - you are who we are growing for!
