Shropshire Petals support Back British Farming Day

Back British Farming Day

Here at Shropshire Petals, we're proud to support the NFU's Back British Farming Day this September 15th. As a symbol to British farming hundreds of our Shropshire grown wheat buttonholes have been wrapped in British wool and sent out to MP's to wear in the Houses of Parliament to show their support too.

Why support British farming?

What can you do to support British farming?

Where possible make sure to buy your produce seasonally, and from British farms. An easy way to spot you're buying from a reliable British farm, is to buy produce with a red tractor assured logo. That means it came from a traceable source, safe and farmed with care.

Here at Shropshire Petals we grow a variety of flowers during the summer months on our Shropshire based farm. Our flowers are picked by hand and dried onsite to make biodegradable confetti or dried flower bunches. British dried flowers are becoming increasingly popular as they last much longer than fresh flowers, they have a lower carbon footprint as they're already grown here in the UK and they don't need any maintenance either. Our flowers field act as a haven to wildlife during the summer months, which is especially great news for pollinators. Take a look at our range of dried petal confetti, or dried flower collection
