Supporting the wildlife ecosystem, here in our bit of Cheshire

Delamere Flower Farm is run by me, Alice, and supported by my husband Pete and good friend Andrea.

Pete and I live amongst our flowers with our three children, Rose, Ben and Olivia.

Bringing up our children here on the farm is a privilege, although at times it can be a juggling act. One of the reasons we began this venture was to find a way to blend family life and work life, and that’s something we’ve achieved.

We find working in the earth to be good for mind, body and soul, and want to pass that onto our children. 

Who we are

Alice

From a lifelong hobby, to finding a way to blend both family and work life, Delamere Flower Farm has allowed me to make my dream job a reality. I love seeing our flowers grow and then taking people’s ideas to create stunning natural arrangements. No two bouquets are ever the same.

Andrea

I specialise in being creative with our beautiful flowers, arranging stunning natural bouquets. When the sun’s shining and the bees are buzzing, working on the flower farm doesn’t feel like work. I love being hands on and outside in this unique place.

Pete

From knocking in nails to digging in compost, I work behind the scenes ensuring the flowers grow to their fullest. Nothing beats the feeling of exhaustion at the end of a busy day, followed by the satisfaction of seeing our flowers bloom through the season.

The Farm

We’re based in the small village of Norley, on the edge of Delamere Forest. We’ve got about half an acre of south facing land behind the house where we can be found cultivating a huge variety of flowers.

From scented sweet peas and old fashioned roses in June, to the shapes and sizes of dahlias in August, we love to grow cottage garden flowers that you just can’t get elsewhere. Over the years we’ve developed the experience and know-how to get the flowers looking their best just as they’re picked.

With everything we do here, we try to care for the land and the environment we live in, growing organically and ethically. We have our own beehives, to help pollination, collect our own rainwater to irrigate the flowers, and use our own compost to enrich the soil.

Our Ethos

Using predominantly home grown British flowers benefits everyone. Fewer imported flowers means fewer airmiles. Fewer supply links means we can offer the flowers cheaper. And by growing our own pollinating flowers, we’re supporting a whole ecosystem of wildlife here in Cheshire.

The nature of our business means we’re able to treat every customer as an individual. We’re great believers in chatting about ideas, making suggestions along the way, and ensuring you get the flowers you want for your special occasion.
