The River Garden Flower Farm was established almost 30 years ago when my Jersey-boy husband, Walt, and I met while working at the Union Square Greenmarket in New York City. 


As a husband-and-wife team, we built a farm, bringing together our experience working with ornamentals, knowledge of the demands of the retail and wholesale flower markets, and a never-ending interest in color, texture, and form. 

Throughout the years, we've planned, planted, tended to, and harvested our crops. Motivated by our customer's excitement and love for the beauty of nature, we've experimented with and selected new and heirloom varieties of flowers, herbs, grains, grasses, and ornamentals. 

We look forward to continuing to inspire joy by providing breathtaking fresh blooms and creating unique everlasting botanical arrangements for years to come!
