In the 18 years since Folls Farms sold the first bouquet, many goals have been reached and visions completed. We are so grateful for all of our past and current customers who have helped us create a successful sustainable farmer florist business. We are also indebted to all of our employees both currently who have become a part of our family and those in the past who helped us develop our family business. As we begin our trek into 2018 we continue our pledge to proper land stewardship, fair working wages to our employees and beautiful locally grown non toxic flowers for your home, business, party or wedding.
Thea & Hal Folls
Thea started the family business in 2000 after being gifted a book on flower farming. She is the head designer, primary chef, bottle washer and delivery gal for the farm. Thea's backround is in art with flower sculptures being her greatest joy. Thea has also created a horse sanctuary for our five special equines; Star the big paint mare, Dexter the older Connemara pony, and our three new rescues from kill pens Arwen, Czalaska, and Grace.
Hal Folls, also known as Noah, is by far the most important part of Folls Flowers. Hal is a retired Professor from SUNY Oswego and now full time animal spoiler and general manager of farm equipment. Hal has the mechanical knowledge that services every piece of equipment from the clippers we use to cut our flowers to the John Deer tractor that is used to create our organic compost to fertilize our beautiful blooms. His love and devotion to our animal family year round allows for a peaceful coexistence.
Morgan has been a farmer/floral designer with Folls flowers since 2014. Thea offered her a job after her former boss retired her organic produce farm. She had experience with farming, but not with flowers. Thea took her under her wing and taught her the beautiful art of growing and working with these magical blooms. Her love for flowers continues to grow every year.
Sean, son of Heather has been a significant part of Folls Flowers since it began in 2000. Even as a three year old he was pulling weeds, planting, attending farmers markets with his mom, and giving farm tours to visitors. Currently Sean is attending SUNY ESF, but continues to work on the farm in the summers as he has been since 2005.
