On the rolling slopes of Haleakalā in Makawao, Maui, Petaloom Floral Company has been growing flowers in a range of vibrant colors and varieties since 2017.
As a family – two sisters and our mother - we grow a variety of colorful blooms and vegetables using organic methods. As the women behind Petaloom, we are passionate about growing naturally fresh products for your kitchen table and special events like weddings and farm-to-table dinners. We also love engaging with small and large groups teaching lei po‘o and flower-arrangement workshops.
At the farm, we emphasize community over competition, and we’ve developed relationships with farms all over the island to collaborate for events and other creative endeavors.
There is a multitude of reasons to buy local flowers: they are fresher, more vibrant, last longer, support the local economy and can even have a positive environmental impact. The majority of flowers brought to our island are grown thousands of miles away in places like Columbia, Thailand, Ecuador, and Kenya. Not only do they arrive in less than ideal shape, but their negative environmental impact is huge!
We are passionate about bringing you beautiful, fresh flowers using practices that encourage healthy soil, feed local bee populations and are kid-friendly. We use all no-till, non-certified organic methods that bring life to the soil and verdant hues to our blooms.
We receive incredible joy from growing flowers for the community to help them celebrate their special moments, and we want that joy to spread. By working with and supporting other Maui flower farmers through sharing best practices and exchanging flowers, we hope to grow the local organic flower industry.
