About the Tour

The American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour invites guests nationwide to dine in the fields of America’s most stunning flower and foliage farms. The dinner tour is a cross-country series of gatherings where seasonal blooms and foliage dazzle on beautifully designed tablescapes dressed by top U.S. floral designers, while gourmet meals are prepared by well-known farm-to-table chefs.

Since launching, the dinners have garnered unprecedented local and national media attention and provided a wildly successful way to showcase the heritage of America’s flower-farming families. In 2017, the tour snagged Floral Management’s Marketer of the Year Award.

Certified American Grown, the organizer of these dinners, is a non-profit trade association who provides a voice for ONLY American farmers. Proceeds from the Field to Vase Dinner Tour contribute to CAG's advocacy and marketing efforts to promote American farms and preserve American floriculture heritage.

Pantone calls Greenery “symbolic of new beginnings,” and as we all emerge into a new space following the pandemic, new beginnings could not be more appropriate. In many ways, the dinner will be a celebration of American farmers’ perseverance and the commitment of these family farms to continue in their tradition of growing America’s most beautiful greens, ferns and foliage.

The Farm

“We are truly excited to welcome guests to Fern Trust and to highlight the beauty that is grown on our farms here in Florida,” said David Register, Executive Vice President of Fern Trust. “Our family heritage of farming ferns and foliage here in the U.S. runs deep and it is a passion to continue to share when we do. When people have the opportunity to learn where their foliage is grown and produced to beautify their arrangements at home and in their offices, we have the chance to increase our supporters and ambassadors. Our farms are unique and exciting – the Field to Vase dinner is an immersive and engaging way to enjoy our farm, support American grown, build community, and increase the movement to purchase more domestic foliage and flowers.”

Fern Trust is an agriculture cooperative made up of over a dozen family farms that work together to produce America’s best floral greens. With over 300 acres of ferns and foliage, FernTrust's David Register likes to say, “If it is a green, they grow it.” Florida’s blend of warm/cold temperatures nurture dark color, lush plants and textural interest, and is the perfect climate for cultivating gorgeous greens. The ambiance created by these exotic greens is truly special.
