Californian Organic Flower Shop in the Internet
by Redaktion (comments: 0)
The Kesslers' business, originally called Terra Bella Floral Design, has been around about 3 1/2 years in Chico, California.
Terra Bella became CaliforniaOrganicFlowers.com for the Internet, the result of help from Advantage Butte County, a county-led program for helping businesses. Relocating here from Idaho because of a friend's recommendation, as well as a longer growing season and this state's strides in organic growing, the Kesslers have a long history with organic farming for both vegetables and flowers, reports the Chicoer.com. They were among the growers in a "community supported agriculture program" in which members paid $400 a year to get fresh, organic vegetables delivered to their door. But bad weather, a new baby and short growing seasons brought doubts into their minds. A friend who had lived in Chico suggested this was the place for the Kesslers. Visiting, the Kesslers saw that Chico was saturated by vegetable growers, but there was a niche for flowers.
The Kesslers sell their organic flowers via internet, at local farmers' markets and to wholesalers. They design floral arrangements for weddings, special occasions and corporate gifts.
On the website of the Kesslers it says: "Browse our site and you will find a rainbow of fresh flowers from our own flower farm in Chico, California. Many of the varieties will be new to you because we don't believe in limiting your floral joy to just roses and carnations. Each morning we rise early to pick your flowers, ensuring that they are fresh, vibrant, fragrant and grown and harvested with the greatest care. We carefully pack our Organic Flowers and Cal-Eco Select Flowers into our beautiful gift box and deliver next day anywhere in the continental U.S.A. We also offer seasonal fruit, organic gifts and organic chocolate."
