Meet the Scilly Flowers team

Churchtown Farm Team

The who's who of Churchtown Farm, from the founders, partners and staff, with a little bit of information about them.

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 have loved it here so much they have stayed a lot longer! If you think you would enjoy life working on a flower farm on a tiny island then click here for more information.
