Long Island's First Mobile Flower Truck

Hometown Flower Co. connects people who love flowers with the local farmers who grow them. A new take on the traditional neighborhood florist, Hometown Flower Co. offers fresh local varieties delivered right to your doorstep through monthly subscriptions, and through its vintage pick-up truck, Baby Blue, a 1976 Ford F-100, reimagined to become Long Island’s first mobile flower truck.

A Flower Truck With a Mission

Their mission is simple: to encourage people to look no further than their hometowns to find beauty grown nearby, and to provide access to locally-grown varieties in places where our farmers are typically unable to consistently reach. Inspired by a third-generation flower designer’s experience growing up in the floral industry and witnessing how removed consumers and retailers were from where and how their flowers were sourced, Hometown Flower Co. was founded with a strong desire to change the status quo and encourage people to embrace their roots.
