Fentongollan Flower farm – fresh Cornish flowers bulbs & vegetable plants delivered straight to your door.
Our family’s been farming just under two and a half thousand acres of beautiful and fertile Cornish countryside for over 130 years.
Here on the Fal estuary we grow over 400 varieties of daffodil, including many that are new, unique and rare. Our expertise in Cornish cut flowers, professional grade vegetable plants and bulbs – as well as our more than 50 years experience – means we also export worldwide and sell direct to gardeners, wholesalers, councils and gardening clubs.
This is one of the world’s best places to grow daffodils and narcissi. It’s a thrill and a privilege to farm here; we also grow cereals (which cover 1,600 acres), raise lamb (1000 breeding ewes), supply 80% of the vegetable seedlings Cornish farmers need and, in August, September and October, sell our bulbs online, wholesale and from the shop on the farm.
Fentongollan Flower Farm – a little of our history
You can trace Hoskings farming in Cornwall back to the late eighteenth century, but weve been where are now, on the Fal estuary, since 1883.The fifth generation of our family to work on the farm joined us for part of summer 2014.
A life before tractors, transport and all of today’s technology wasnt easy but some things in farming are constants which have nothing to do with progress. For all this time, whatever weve been doing here weve done with care and love for everything weve grown, reared and cultivated, always making sure we do nothing in our farming present to harm our farming future.
