Hello! My name is Marly and welcome to Fenimore & Rutland.
Fenimore & Rutland is named after the side streets where I lived in Brooklyn, NY. I'm paying homage to these tree-lined streets with brownstones and well-tended 'stoop' gardens.
I'm an avid gardener (think English Cottage, romantic florals) and I grow flowers in thanks to my Creator. I see His hands in creation and my heart is grateful. Growing flowers is very hard work, but the community is supportive, and it's worth the amazing rewards. I also enjoy creating floral arrangements and floral art.
WHERE I GROW FLOWERS
If you've never heard of a micro-floral farm, we are exactly that. Growing beautiful blooms on less than 2100 sq ft. requires lessons in patience, time management, and spacing! At this time, due to limited size, I grow only for local wholesale, designers, and DIY brides.
WHY BUY LOCAL?
Here a few reasons:
- You'll support a woman-owned business
- You'll support other local flower farmers
- You'll have access to fresh, healthy, quality flowers that are difficult to transport from overseas (sunflowers, zinnia, lisianthus, dahlia, ageratum, and peonies)
- You’ll help the local bees and habitats
