Nestled in the valley of Brentwood Bay, Eurosa Farms was established in 1979 by Hans and Debbie Bulk. The initial property was purchased in August 1979; the first rose plants were planted in soil the following November just in time to harvest our first crop of roses for Mother’s day 1980.
In the following years, in response to improved technologies and growing techniques, Eurosa Farms began the switch to hydroponic growing. Crops expanded to include: alstromeria, lisianthus, stocks, snapdragons and gerberas.
The blizzard of ’96 resulted in the loss of our growing operations. Over the following year, we had to rebuild nearly our entire rose growing operation. We have continued to grow and expand and in response to increased demand for our farm fresh roses we converted our gerbera growing operation to include our beautiful garden roses in 2019.
Today Eurosa Farms has a total production area of 17,500 sq meters, or 4.3 acres of greenhouses and over 80,000 rose plants. We enjoy providing our customers with the freshest, island grown, roses 365 days a year. We harvest by hand our beautiful roses six days a week- which is 2.3 million roses a year- in order to provide our customers and beyond with the freshest possible product. We are currently the only standard cut rose grower in Canada.
What started as a small family business with three employees has blossomed into a bustling business with over 30 employees and three generations of family working together. It is our pleasure to be a part of our community’s celebrations, traditions and family milestones.
