Far Hill Flowers was featured in an episode of ITV's Coast and Country on ITV Wales in early October.
If you follow this link and go to episode 16 at 7.17 minutes in you will see us at work, our farm, our flowers and a bit of us as well!
In 2015 a lovely florist called Ceri Elms from Lumley and Elms visited our flower farm for a look around and to buy some flowers.
She told me they were for 'someone rather special,' but no more.
A few days later she shared pictures of what she had done with the flowers and who they were for.
I think you will agree that The Queen is rather special indeed!
