Fabulous Florals is proud to offer Certified American Grown flowers. Certified American Grown is a unified and diverse coalition of U.S. flower farms representing small and large entities across the country. Together, America’s flower farmers are giving customers confidence in the source of their flowers by providing the only third party guarantee in the floral industry that the bouquets and bunches that are purchased were actually homegrown.
In 2013, the American Grown Flowers & Foliage Task Force was formed. It included flower farms large and small, established and emerging. Many contributed seed funds to the initial branding budget, which helped identify a name, “Certified American Grown Flowers,” a tagline, “take pride in your flowers,” and a contemporary logo that evokes Americana and agriculture, as well as fashion and style.
But this is not just a pretty logo and slogan.
In 2014, the American Grown Flowers worked with an independent verification agency to develop a third-party system of source verification to establish the only guarantee in the industry that could ensure that the flowers, and bunches were grown in the United States.
Participating American flower farms participate in a rigorous audit process prior to receiving their certification that qualifies them to add the Certified American Grown logo to their floral packaging, web sites, and other marketing materials.
