Fox Fodder Farm Williamsburg, Flower Design Shop in Brooklyn - We HeartMonday, April 27, 2020
Coronavirus restrictions. But that doesn’t stop us taking a virtual look inside this alluring beauty.Located adjacent to the new Domino Park public space in South Williamsburg, Patterson’s Fox Fodder Farm, a 1,800 square foot retail space, workshop and design studio, is a feast for the eyes; the venue mixing raw materials and a neutral colour palette to allow the jaw-dropping floral arrangements to take the centre stage they so deserve. Designed by New York-based design and build studio, Brook Landscape, the retail area features an in-ground stone water feature that provides soft background noise throughout the day, and the use of floor-to-ceiling moveable sand-coloured curtains enable Patterson to convert the shop cum studio into an events space; a host of discussion panels, poetry readings, performances and more in the pipeline for when all of this is finally over. Renowned for their creative and thoughtful seasonal floral arrangements and botanical installations, it’s only natural that at Fox Fodder Farm the flowers are the star of the show. Lined against bare concrete walls with neutral wooden shelves that also feature curated products made by selected artists and artisans, these freshly cut florals couldn’t look any more at home.@foxfodderfarm@brooklandscapeFox Fodder Farm Williamsburg Photography, Nicole Franzen. ... https://www.we-heart.com/2020/03/30/fox-fodder-farm-williamsburg-brooklyn-new-york/

Fox Fodder Farm Opens Brooklyn Floral Boutique - WWDThursday, March 12, 2020
After several years operating out of the Canal Street Market, Fox Fodder Farm has returned to its roots.The floral design studio has opened permanent Brooklyn headquarters in South Williamsburg, not far from where founder Taylor Patterson first pivoted to floral design in 2011. Before popping up on Canal Street, the team had operated out of spaces in Bushwick and Greenpoint in Brooklyn.“I had been dreaming about this kind of space for a long time,” says Patterson, a few days before the store’s Valentine’s Day opening date. Although she’d originally been hoping to find a space in Manhattan — for proximity to the Flower District — she was contacted by the broker for Two Trees Management, the real estate developer that has reshaped much of the Williamsburg waterfront.“[The company] is really good to small businesses, and they really prioritize bringing in small businesses that add to the quality of life for their residents and create a community feel,” says Patterson. “So in terms of the space and the rent and everything they were offering, it was a little bit of a too-good-to-be-true sort of situation.”Fox Fodder Farm is named for Patterson’s family farm in Delawar... https://wwd.com/eye/lifestyle/fox-fodder-farm-brooklyn-williamsburg-floral-boutique-1203477755/

How a Calvin Klein designer started his own floral design business - Los Angeles Times - Los Angeles TimesTuesday, July 23, 2019
Nam Vo, who is best known for doing Kylie Jenner’s makeup. His regular gig, though, is a workshop he leads at Urban Outfitters’ Space Ninety8 in Williamsburg — where he teaches interested parties how to make arrangements and about the philosophies of ikebana.Kabigting says he has a short attention span, which might explain his tendency to jump from one line of work to the next. But he says this mind frame allows him to get creative with his arrangements, tell stories with colors and textures and make something that can be appreciated from multiple angles.“I don’t watch commercials, I can’t read a book from front page to back — I go to the back,” he says. “With movies, I’m the same way. I start from the end. Whether it’s this idea of control, or whatever it is, I like to be interested immediately. I like this idea of a beautiful, well-styled thing that is a full-on celebration, which you’re excited by. While at Calvin Klein, Fernando Kabigting practiced his love for arranging by giving flowers to his co-workers on their birthdays and leaving stems on their desks.(Jillian S... https://www.latimes.com/fashion/la-ig-wwd-calvin-klein-designer-flowers-20181218-story.html
Small Business Spotlight: E. Stephen Hein - www.smileypete.comSunday, February 28, 2021
Pemberton’s to open his own shop.
Today, Hein’s floral shop has turned into a true family affair, with his granddaughter, Kelsey Hein Smith, having worked alongside him since graduating from Eastern Kentucky University in 2017. A floral designer and the store’s social media manager, Smith calls her grandfather PoPo – except during business hours.
“It’s weird to call him Steve,” she admitted.
Thoughtful, artistic expression has always been appreciated in the floral business, and remains a staple of Hein’s business model. While centerpieces and corsages are less common than they were at the start of his business, sending flowers across town – or even across the country – remains a popular action, and Hein can help with both. Some of his loyal clients utilize his services not only for local flower delivery but also to coordinate out-of-state arrangements for funerals or special occasions.
“We know what to say to the other florist, the dos and don’ts of what to use and what not to use,” Hein said, explaining that his clients appreciate his specific aesthetic. His penchant for communicating the specifics of that aesthetic when “calling out” orders to other florists hasn’t gone unnoticed, as the shop has often been lauded for orders that Hein helps coordinate across the country.
Former and fellow florists have also expressed their gratitude to Hein over the years.
“They have told me that when I set up shop in Lexington in 1987, I raised the bar for what florists do to make a show with their flower arrangements,” he said. “I thought that was a very nice compliment.”

Florist Who Bragged About Entering Nancy Pelosis Office Charged - Patch.comSunday, January 17, 2021
KOSA. Death threats have been left for Cudd at her flower shop, she told KOSA. Other businesses with similar names to "Becky's Flowers" across the country have also been targeted. In Kentucky, Becky's Flower Basket has received backlash even though its business has no affiliation with Cudd's Texas shop, according to a WKYT report. Amber Sergent told the Kentucky television station her family has been swamped with angry calls from people who are confusing them with Cudd's business. "Very violent language, I'll put it that way," Sergent said. The FBI had not listed the exact charges Cudd faces as of Wednesday afternoon.

Calif. flower shop with no connection to Capitol riot flooded with threats, negative reviews - SFGateSunday, January 17, 2021
Alberti’s business appeared to have been removed from the platform. However, Cudd’s business also has a 4.6 rating.) Two other florists bearing the same name in Kentucky and Scotland were burdened with similar harassment. Alberti said all of them have given up on deleting the comments, and are instead attempting to respond to each one in order to set the record straight. “I offered to send some people maps of the United States,” joked Alberti. “Most people apologize and then they reverse, but some are steadfast. My thing is, I understand the need to vent and get rid of that hostility, but just spend an extra five seconds of time to see that we’re not in Texas. The very platforms that these people are using to type these rants and tirades … it would take them less time to find out we’re not that business than it would take for them to write the post.” He’s concerned about what the future holds for his business, which has been around since 1973 and spans four generations. “We’re just trying to survive,” said Alberti. “Being a florist is hard enough. We don’t have a high profit margin. We do it because we love it and love flowers. To already be suffering through COVID and add this on top of it, it’s stressful.” source srcset="https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20494742/3/700x0.jpg 1x, https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20... https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Beckys-Flowers-Roseville-mistaken-Capitol-rioter-15871654.php
