We are tickled pink to offer fresh cut flower bouquets from The Farm at Oxford in Lincoln University, Pennsylvania. Originally from California, Mara Tyler had a dream to live on a farm and grow flowers. Sixty property visits and 1.5 years later, she finally found her beautiful 1838 farmhouse in Southern Chester County, on a 12-acre farmette that was historically used for dairy and sheep farming. Fenced pastures with meadowed flatlands seemed perfect for brightly colored flowers, and the idea of The Farm at Oxford was born. We feel fortunate to be one of the few local retailers to offer her colorful and textured bouquets, which arrive every Friday morning.
The farm’s cut flower business specializes in locally grown peonies, dahlias, roses, spring bulbs and companion perennials. Mara is inspired by the unique and challenging flower varieties, and as long as the ground is not frozen, you can typically find her outside digging in the dirt or in the workshop playing with flowers.
The Farm at Oxford is a featured grower on Field to Vase, a premiere advocate for the growing local flower movement and a member of the Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers. The Farm at Oxford also offers fresh floral workshops all through the year; a CSA bouquet share in spring and fall; many floral design, succulent and holiday wreath workshops; and fresh blooms to florists and designers in multiple Pennsylvania counties. They also host private workshop events for bridal or baby showers or birthdays as well.
