Early on founder Erin Weston enlisted her father, Noel Weston, former horticulturalist for the City of Raleigh, to find the best trees from all corners of the globe and he leads the horticultural initiatives at Weston Farms. His stewardship creates a system which nourishes the land and the farm is a green spot of biodiversity in an otherwise suburban area.
In 2002, Erin Weston relocated from NYC to her home state of North Carolina to become a farmer. This was a bold move as her degree was in Fine Arts and professional experience in publishing offices.
“My vision was to grow a unique, enduring luxurious product on my family farm. I sold my first creations at a local farmer’s market and grew the business from there,” says Weston. Each year the product line has expanded and to date more than 10,000 trees have been planted at Weston Farms. The signature wreaths, garlands, and fresh Magnolia arrangements are now shipped nationwide throughout the year. The quality, abundance of materials, unique ingredients, and design has dazzled local markets, national interior designers and presidential florists alike.
