We connect people, place and plants to:
1. Share knowledge and skills relating to horticulture, flowers, herbs, food growing, health and nature.
2. Inspire people with their own journey with plants, nurturing health and creativity
3. Nurture the health, sustainability and diversity of the gardens in Audley End.
Founded in 2015 in Anna and Alex's back garden, together with a small plant stall in the village – Anna's Flower Farm is now a walled garden and set of growing plots set around a studio and outdoor kitchen on the historic Audley End Estate, Saffron Walden .
We want to share our plants, space and knowledge via courses, classes and experiences, so that you too can enjoy and be inspired by the pleasures of growing.
Anna is a gardener who arranges flowers: she has 20 years' of experience working in horticulture, as a plantswoman and garden designer. Anna’s work is informed by her wide-ranging interests in art, design, history and culture.
Anna's Flower Farm is based on the historic Audley End Estate, Saffron Walden.
We grow an abundance of highly sought after material with a small dedicated team, entirely chemical free. These flowers cannot be easily sourced elsewhere, be it new hardy annuals, fragrant herbs, delicate garden sweet peas and roses through to specialist grasses, vine tendrils and bold dahlias.
Anna and Alex believe in a holistic approach to gardening. By caring for the soil, wildlife, their own bees and chickens, biodiversity and health are championed. This method and ethos has created a diverse local ecosystem, resulting in the most beautiful flowers and delicious edibles.
The ultimate aim is to create a biodynamic garden.
We design consciously from seed to vase.
Ordinarily the farm and studio is regularly opened for talks, classes, special events and experiences.

NATURAL FUNERAL FLOWERS
Celebrating life, creating a funeral tribute with our flowers and foliage is privilege. We only use moss, branches and twine to create a base which is entirely biodegradable.
It is in tributes that we believe our work has the greatest positive impact for both our clients and the natural environment.
With our beautiful walled garden and studio right in the centre of the plots, the farm is a beautiful, peaceful hive of activity at any time of year.
Sharing our space and knowledge is at the heart of our work and day. There are classes, talks, experiences and events here across every season.
From a short creative and practical class, days spent on the farm right though to our Year Long Course 'Grow Your Own Cut Flowers', there is a lot to discover.
We partner with other like minded businesses and venues to provide interesting and unique events, together with creating bespoke private classes for Hen and Stag gatherings, one-to-ones and group tuition.
