New Zealand: Manawatū flower farmer on love, family, and freesias

1 Min Read

Wilflora flower farmer Martin Wilson is used to his blooms bringing joy, and sometimes romance, to others, especially since his farm is the setting for his own love story.

Working in a small team and surrounded by flowers all day, with row upon row of iridescent blossoms and enchanting aromas wafting through the air, Wilfora is the perfect setting for a love story.

And for Wilson, it was. “I actually met the love of my life, Jennifer, right here on the farm,” he said. “She started working here when she finished her studies in 2003. “Surrounded by flowers, working side-by-side all day long, one thing led to another.”

Wilson said the couple now run the business together. “I couldn’t do it without her support.” Wilson is a specialist freesia and mixed-cut flower farmer at Wilflora, which is in the Manawatū-Whanganui region.
