US (FL): Fern & foliage farmers recognized with flag dedication
America’s fern and foliage farmers in Volusia County Florida, known as the world’s fern capital, were hit hard by Hurricane Matthew, resulting in the loss of production and significant damage to their farms.
In a matter of days, farmers were repairing structures and harvesting fern from unaffected plants, all in an effort to keep their fern and foliage supply coming.
“We are grateful for the efforts of Florida’s fern and foliage farmers who have been working day and night to continue to serve the floral industry,” said Kasey Cronquist, administrator for Certified American Grown. “Despite this life-altering event, these farmers put others’ needs first. It’s been an amazing effort and a significant display of the resiliency of America’s farmers.”
David Register, executive vice president of FernTrust Inc., said that while fern and foliage farmers are accustomed to hard work and hits from Mother Nature, Hurricane Matthew was a significant obstacle to overcome. He, too, applauded efforts to keep ferns and leatherleaf flowing to the marketplace.
“We appreciate the industry’s patience as we tackle the significant damage from the storm. We are grateful for our colleague’s patience and support and we look forward to bouncing back, stronger than before,” Register said.
