Frequently Asked Questions
What is The Collab?
The Collab is an online marketplace for farmers and florists of Northeast Ohio to connect and sell locally grown flowers in wholesale quantities. Save time by shopping all of your local farms in one spot!
How does The Collab work?
Farmers post their product on Thursday morning. The Collab is open from Thursday to Monday for purchases. Farmers harvest product on Tuesday and deliver to our central location at Frayed Knot Farm. Frayed Knot Farm is open Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning for pickup. Delivery is also available Wednesday afternoon or all day Thursday.
Wait, so I’m buying flowers that aren’t cut yet?
Yes. Products on The Collab are not harvested until they are sold. This is to ensure freshness and quality across the process of bringing stems from farm to florist. All product is harvested the Tuesday before delivery/pickup unless specified otherwise. The promise of The Collab is to deliver the freshest product available.
