Meet the Scilly Flowers team

Churchtown Farm Team

Want to put a face to a  name? Here's the who's who of Churchtown Farm. This summer has seen quite a few comings and goings amongst our team after people stayed to see out the worst of the pandemic in quite extreme isolation!  

There are about 18 of us here at the farm all year round. Some people come for 6 months before their next adventure but many of our current team love it here so much they've stayed quite a bit longer. If you think you would enjoy life working on a flower farm on a tiny island then click here for more information.
