Farm Management

This level of involvement helps ensure viable, flower-producing plants, and a healthy crop that will generate income in the 3rd year.

Combining our volume with our partner farms allows us to negotiate better prices. As our collective output increases, so too will Protea USA’s influence in the marketplace.
