Visitors can see for themselves what it takes to grow cut flowers in over 1.5 million square feet of production facilities. The leading edge equipment and systems maximize flower growth and quality, and minimize fossil fuel usage by utilizing wind energy, biomass heating, and cogeneration power units.

Proceeds from retail sales and lunch will go to two Dunnville charities.

Rosa Flora employs 200 full- and part-time employees and sells about 45 million stems of cut flowers annually, including large and mini gerbera, alstroemeria and snapdragons, all grown under state-of-the-art acrylic.

“We are so excited to share the beauty of flowers with you,” says founder Otto Bulk.

Come visit Ontario’s south coast region to get a close up of the systems and equipment used to maximize flower growth and quality and minimize fossil fuel usage, including wind energy, biomass production and cogeneration.
