Meet the Farmers
Fiona Haser Bizony - Queen Bee
Dreamt up whilst Fiona was on self imposed ”gardening leave” from running an Arts centre, Electric Daisy Flower Farm was mapped out on the back of an envelope and became a reality in 2014. Fast forward a few years and her ”seed to bouquet” concept has developed into an organic flower farm in Somerset and an ethical flower shop near Hampstead selling her fresh-from-the-farm plants and flowers.
Rhiannon Marshall - Gardener
Ria came to us as an escapee from the world of film and prop-making. She ran away to the West Country in her narrow boat and rocked up on our doorstep looking for a more sustainable work-life balance. Four years on and Ria is a fully-fledged grower. She now has her own market garden and works with us when she can fit us in.
Jane Caston - Head of Propagation
Jane joined the flower farm as a casual seasonal worker, but we soon realised she was a keeper. She has been with us way beyond that first season. Her domain is the propagation poly tunnel, where she nurtures all our plants from seeds and cuttings. Thousands of plant babies go through her careful management each year. Jane wants to be a gaucho when she grows up.
Bee Rivett-Carnac - Head Gardener
Bee joined the EDFF team when we had just arrived at our forever home in Somerset. She came with market garden experience. Gradually over the years she’s extracted the information she needed to become the best flower farmer in the West. When she’s not plotting and planning flowers, she is a celebrated illustrator and an amazing mother to her two girls.
Robert Powell - Head of Landscape
After over thirty years working for Wiltshire County Council, Robert wanted a quieter life. He came to us at the very beginning, when we were relaxed and new to the world of growing and only had a couple of flower beds. Now he maintains our two and a half acres of flower field and he certainly does not have a quiet life.
Sammy Elmore - Head of Infrastructure and Maintenance
Flowers without irrigation would be a pretty sad bunch. Sammy worked as a plumber on The Shard in London, so his skills are invaluable when it comes to getting water to flow around our flower beds. He is also responsible for all the structures that keep our stems growing tall and straight. We would be lost without him.
Enzo Bizony - Best Boy
Chief ratter and head of security, Enzo patrols the perimeters of the flower farm for intruders. We’ve tried to co-opt him into admin, but he prefers lying in the shade waiting for unsuspecting visitors to throw his ball.
Piers Bizony - Head of random assembly jobs
Whatever is needed on the farm or at HQ, Piers will turn his hand to it, just as long as we don’t ask him to do anything with the flowers. We have come through three cold, hard winters on the flower farm with only a three-sided barn for shelter. Piers has worked tirelessly with Sammy, building our cosy new barns and work rooms. He’s also handy with a camera…
