A five-sibling venture, Fivefork Farms is set on thirty-eight acres of woodlands and rolling fields in Upton, Massachusetts, and has a floral CSA program, which is ridiculously cool. Here's how it works: you sign up for a four, five, or six- week shares, and Fivefork delivers your flowers each week to designated pick-up locations (through New England). The flowers are grown using organic and sustainable practices and of course vary by season—you'll see flowers like anemones, ranunculus, and poppies in the spring; zinnias, foxglove, sweet peas in summer; and an astonishing array of dahlias come fall. The 2016 spring share is already booked but we think the summer share slot would make a wonderful gift.
Wild Folk Studio
A floral design studio based in Somerville, Massachusetts, Wild Folk delivers throughout Massachusetts, and travels across the country and globe to service weddings and events. Led by self-taught floral designer, Caroline O'Donnell, Wild Folk's arrangements are just what you'd expect from the studio's name: loose, artisanal, and lush bouquets fashioned in glass pedestal vases, urns, and mason jars. Wild Folk is big on sourcing local, in-season flowers, and being as eco-conscious as possible otherwise—composting any leftover floral scraps, and often delivering by public transportation.
