Tell us about your business.

In 2002 ago Erin Weston moved from New York City to North Carolina to help with her family farm. She wanted to create a luxury farm product grown at Weston Farms utilizing her art background and incorporated her father’s horticultural knowledge. The Southern Magnolia wreaths, garland and natural accessories from Weston Farms best express this desire and put a new spin on an imminently familiar southern tradition.

What makes your business stand out?

Weston Farms cultivates and grows Southern Magnolia for the beauty and use of their leaves on a family farm in NC. Our product is only as special as the leaves produced by our trees, so in a sense we are farming luxury leaves. The trees are grown so that the underside of each dark green leaf has a natural  velvet coating. Through mulching, excellent cultivar selection, and loving pruning, we encourage our magnolia to produce the highest quality Southern Magnolia available. The leaves are then hand crafted into wreaths, garlands, and natural accessories at the farm. Creating a luxury farm product that marries art and horticulture makes Weston Farms a unique and meaningful business.
