Northern Ireland’s first ever member of Flowers from the Farm, Sharon Millen is a flower farming pioneer. A florist by training and a plant-lover by nature, Sharon embarked on her cut flower adventure just two years ago to offer “a little something extra” to her brides and event hosts.
Fuelled by the enthusiasm of the flower farmers she met at the organisation’s annual conference, she returned to Coleraine as a flower farming evangelist, converting customers to the beauty of locally-grown, seasonal and scented cut flowers.
Under lockdown, Sharon has been amazed by the upsurge in demand from locals. She has launched farmgate bouquets, and has found herself selling as fast as she can grow.
