Rodwell roots Flower Farm flourishing in Mebane

Tammy and Clark Norman started small about six years ago when they began selling their fresh-cut flowers. The name — Rodwell Roots Flower Farm — might have raised some eyebrows as it was more of a backyard-to-front yard operation. The owners grew the flowers in the backyard and sold them in the front yard of their home in a little neighborhood on Mebane Oaks Road.

“It’s not what you would consider a farm,” Tammy said. “It doesn’t have fields and fields of flowers. We live on an acre and a half, but most of it is wooded. We just had a few small garden beds and started selling in the front yard.”

While there may be some debate about what should be considered a farm, what was undeniable was the quality and stop-you-in-your-tracks beauty of the flowers being grown and collected at Rodwell Roots.

“After our first year, we expanded slightly and grew on a neighbor’s 40-acre property, but we still just had a small plot,” she continued. “The next year, we doubled in size at that plot and started selling at the Elon Farmers Market.”
