Our Flower Farm
Visitors who stay at Churchtown Farm Holiday Cottages are very welcome to visit our working flower farm, just next door to the cottages, to see the scented pinks and narcissi being picked, sorted, packed and dispatched.
Hilary and Andrew Julian turned around the fortunes of Churchtown Farm in 1993 when, after trying to make a living sending flowers to the wholesale markets, they hit upon the idea of selling their flowers direct to the public by post and "Scent from the Islands" was born.
The business grew rapidly beyond their wildest dreams and soon they were employing several staff, buying Scented Narcissi from other farmers on the islands and thinking about expanding.
New buildings followed, there were new cold stores, more staff and still the business kept growing.
It was at this time that Ben and Zoë, Hilary and Andrew's son and daughter-in-law, offered to come back to Scilly to help in the business. They now run the business with just a little interference from their parents!
