Sweethaven Farm & Flowers grows a variety of perennial and annual flowers for sale at the farm stand and direct to the public for personal enjoyment and for events. Our arrangements represent traditional garden bouquets and have a less structured context than found at traditional florists. SHF&F offers a variety of vintage vases and vessels to create one-of-a-kind arrangements for both home, business and events.
Our flower choices and garden design are largely reflective of the cutting gardens which were grown by Sharon’s grandmother Mary Noble Wells. It was Mary who originally planted and sold gladiolus and zinnias from the road side at her family home in the Northwest Hills of Connecticut. "Mom" & "Pop's" home was always open to friends and family. It was a place where the door was never locked, fresh flowers from the garden filled the house, a new batch of chocolate chip cookies always topped off the cookie jar and there were abundant vegetables and berries picked fresh from the garden for summer meals. We continue to draw upon their inspiration and influence to create the same environment for family, friends and customers at Sweethaven Farm.
SHF&F has an extensive variety of flowers in our 3 acres of gardens and flower fields. Flowers for the 2018 season are listed below (conditions permitting). We are forever planting new varieties so visit the site frequently for a listing of availability throughout the season.
