THE FARM

Audley End, Saffron Walden

Anna's Flower Farm is hidden within the historic Audley End Village and Estate, Saffron Walden. Founded in Anna's back garden with a plant stall in the village back in 2015, Anna's Flower Farm is now made up of 3 plots, 'Walled Garden, Braybrooke Garden and the Field' together with a polytunnel all set around a studio and outdoor kitchen area on 0.4 acres. It is a micro flower farm but with nearly 300 linear metres of productive beds and other permanent borders, we grow a large range of stems across the year and sell flowers between April and October.

It is open by appointment only to maintain the magical atmosphere  and privacy of the gardens. You can visit for classes, experiences, open days or hire our space privately. 

We grow remarkable flowers. Flowers that are not usually found grown for cut flowers, events and delivery.  We grow radically, entirely naturally and chemical free. We believe that good soil health is the key to vibrant strong stems and what creates the unique and uplifting atmosphere of the plots. 

 

These special flowers create combinations and arrangements that delight, with hardy annuals,  fragrant herbs, delicate garden sweet peas and English roses through to wispy grasses, vine tendrils and daisy petaled dahlias. 

Flowers are cut every Thursday morning, rested and conditioned before being delivered locally each Friday in our abundant growing season between April and October.  You can also cut these yourself in our classes. 

We believe in a holistic approach to gardening and growing flowers. Every part of the farm is cared for, the soil, wildlife, our bees and chickens and this creates a thriving biodiversity where good natural health is championed. This method and ethos has created a diverse local ecosystem, resulting in the most beautiful flowers and delicious edibles.

We connect people, place and plants to share knowledge and skills relating to horticulture, flowers, herbs, food growing, health and nature.​ To inspire people with their own journey with plants, emphasizing health and creativity.​
