Erin is a flower grower and designer from Falmouth, Maine. Falmouthtown Flower Co is a small flower farm and design studio located on her family's historic farm overlooking Casco Bay. She fills her field with a collection of unusually hued and textured floral materials to supply her projects. Her flowers are also available to other local designers. For 2023, she is offering custom arrangements and taking on a limited number of intimate events.
Erin's floral influences have been leading industry innovators whom she has been fortunate to learn under, including a farming mentorship with Floret, design intensives with Susan McCleary and Flower School New York, and a member of Flowering Minds.
Paul helps put the farmer in Erin's farmer-florist work title. He has been the bed prepper, spreadsheet creator, implement handler, and any other project involving grit and a high level of math calculations. While his day job is a physical therapist for a professional sport's team, he loves the challenge that working outside in the field brings.
This is the second business that Erin and Paul have created together. The first being a boutique physical therapy and exercise studio in Paul's hometown of Buffalo, New York. Attracted to the curiosities with starting a new kind of business, they are excited to introduce more locally grown flowers into this community and Erin's home state.
ABOUT OUR LAND
Once used as a tavern and stagecoach house for travelers back in the 1800's, this farmhouse sits high atop Blackstrap hill. The barn, previously affixed with a widows walk, allowed innkeepers to watch for approaching boats in the nearby harbor and prepare for guest arrival.
The nickname Falmouthtown was chosen to embrace this sense of place and pay homage to the town's seafaring origins.
Paul and Erin moved to this homestead in 2019 with their dogs, a mini Schnauzer Olive, Italian Spinone Hazel, and recently added a rescue named Teddy to the pack.
