Daffodil Hill Growers

Daffodil Hill Growers represents the third generation of farming for the Blersch family. At a time when milk and eggs were delivered to homes each week my grandfather and great grandfather were chicken farmers. My grandfather moved the farm to our current location in Southbury in 1949 from Stratford. The farm in Southbury became known as Woodside Farm. The land was farmed until the early 90??s when my grandfather passed away.

With a background in floral design Daffodil Hill Growers was born. We began our journey almost 10 years ago by providing exquisite and unique florals to discriminating brides in Connecticut. We provide unique florals for all occasions from weddings to parties. From something such as the perfect flowers for a small intimate dinner party to providing sumptuous decorations to a wedding with 400 guests. Our unique designs incorporate only the freshest materials, hand selected for your special occasion.

We expanded into offering unique plant materials, in 2004 we put up our first greenhouse, and slowly began restoring the property to be a working farm. Now with 5 greenhouses, we grow a wonderful selection of the highest quality annuals, perennials, ornamental grasses, vegetable plants, as well as kale and mums for the fall. We offer specialty items such as patio planters, living wreaths, and specialty hanging baskets.

Daffodil Hill Growers branched out into field grown vegetables in 2007 when it was realized that we needed something to take up the season in between annuals and mums. Vegetable production now makes up over half of our business. We specialize in heirloom tomatoes, specialty eggplant, greens, broccoli, beets, okra and more. We are one of the only farms in the area growing vegetables year round using an unheated greenhouse known as a high tunnel. We pick salad mix and greens from November until May. Our produce can be found at two local winter farmers' markets and three summer farmers' markets. Introducing for 2014 we will be selling a limited amount of CSA (community supported agriculture shares).
