A five-sibling venture, Fivefork Farms is set on 38 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 six- or ten-week share, and Fivefork delivers your flowers each week to designated pick-up locations (Boston, Cambridge, Brookline, Somerville, and Worcester). 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 a summer share slot would make a wonderful gift to look forward to.
Wild Folk Studio
A floral design studio based in Somerville, Massachusetts, Wild Folk delivers to Boston and Cambridge, too, and travels throughout New England for 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.
