What is a Flower bouquet Subscription?

When you sign up for a flower subscription, you will receive a farmers’ market style bouquet of fresh flowers each week (or every other week) from my farm. It is similar to a vegetable CSA or weekly vegetable box, but for flowers.  

Your bouquet will will be full of seasonal bounty including flowers, herbs, vegetables and foliage I grow or forage from my land. The first week your bouquet is delivered to your designated pick up location in a vase that is car cup holder friendly.  All following weeks your bouquet is delivered in a bouquet sleeve only, so please bring your vase with you at the time of pickup.  A packet of flower food is provided weekly and I encourage you to use this to prolong the life of your flowers – they get hungry too!

How Long Will The Bouquet Last?

Your bouquet will include a variety of seasonal blooms, each with its own natural life span, on average the bouquet will last 7-10 days with good care which includes utilizing the flower food that is provided with the bouquet, maintaining a clean vase and displaying the flowers in a cool location out of direct sun light.  

Please see all the tips for caring for your bouquet of fresh flowers. 

I hear there is a 3Chicks fudge add-on available for 2018?

Rachel Rainey of 3Chicks Fudgery has joined up to offer a bouquet add-on of ½# of her weekly featured flavors of fudge (2 flavors of 1/4# each).  Sugar-free fudge is available upon request at time of original order.

Is there a delivery option for the flower bouquet subscription?

If the business address is located within the following geographical boundaries, delivery is available for an additional $5 per week (plus Indiana sales tax).  This delivery area can be more easily defined as the general downtown Evansville area.

For security purposes, no home delivery is provided.  

Please note that with the delivery option, you will be responsible to leave your vase or other appropriate container, with water, at the receptionist or security desk for me to place your bouquet into. 

Can I provide a flower bouquet subscription as a gift to someone?

Absolutely!  At time of check out here on the website you have the option to designate this as a gift. Please note the thank you confirmation along with some important information about the subscription will come to you and to the gift recipient the week before your subscription starts so that they have an easy point of contact with me. 

When does the flower bouquet subscription program run?

For 2018, the subscription program is now closed as of the last week of July.

For 2019, it will begin in early June and will be available through Labor Day.  You can join the subscription program (or gift it) anytime during this period up to the last full week of July, depending on availability.  The deadline for signing up for a subscription for Tuesday delivery is the prior Friday/6 am CST.

In the meantime, you can visit me until the end of September each Saturday at the Historic Newburgh Farmers Market or order flowers online to be picked up at the Farm or delivered to a limited area in Evansville.

I will announce when the 2019 season opens on Facebook and Instagram @darnellschoolfarm or via the links below..   

What if I cannot pick up my flowers on Tuesday before the host closes?

Each host site has graciously offered to host us and has limited space to accommodate all of the bouquets.  Out of consideration, please pick up your flowers during the time frame or arrange to have someone else pick them up for you. Neither Darnell School Farm nor the host site is responsible for flowers that you are unable to pick up. Part of our arrangement is that each host site can gift bouquets that are not picked up during the designated time to other businesses or individuals.

What if I am on vacation?

I understand that you may be out of town during the summer. In order to accommodate summer vacations, you will be able to skip one week of flowers and as applicable flowers and fudge. You will receive a double delivery the next week. Please email me at least one week in advance in order to arrange for your vacation week.

What if Darnell School Farm does not deliver my bouquet or fudge to the host site?

I take my commitment to you seriously; however, I grow everything in the field which may be impacted by weather, wildlife and other factors out of my control.  Should a bouquet delivery be missed, I will add a week to your subscription or refund your payment for that week based on your preference.

Are there specific terms and conditions of sale?
