Farmer Membership

How Does It Work?

You grow the beautiful cut flowers. MFB provides coordination, communication and buyer outreach, fulfillment, plus marketing. As a farming member you’ll simply upload your available products for pre-sale each week. Then on market day, deliver your fresh blooms to the MFB and we sell them to our buyers! Our goal is to encourage a strong local flower economy in Michigan, making locally-grown florals easily accessible to designers and florists. Ready to join our farmer lineup? 

Apply To Be a Member

We welcome new & seasoned farmers, and encourage sustainable farming practices. Our farming members are required to grow all of their own products. Once you’ve filled out our flower farm application, our team will review it and contact you upon approval within 7-10 business days.

We offer two flower farm membership options each year: full season passes from Mid-April – October ($200). Or a partial season pass for farmers with specific or limited crop availability, for a pre-selected 8 weeks ($100).

Want to sign up as a farmer and get a buyer’s pass? As an approved flower farming member, you can add on a buyer’s pass for $50.

MICHIGAN FLOWER FARMING COLLECTIVE

Now you’ve got a spot to sell all of those beautiful blooms.  The MFB was created to offer a consistent wholesale marketplace for our fellow flower farmers in Mid-Michigan. Community over competition is what we live by, and we’re excited to have our team of diverse farmers grow each year!
