Melanie Harrington is the owner of Dahlia May Flower Farm.
Dahlia May, founded in 2014, is a small family farm specializing in growing specialty cut flowers. A native of the Quinte area, Melanie brings a background in art and horticulture to her work in building community through locally grown flowers on her family’s third generation farm.
Melanie’s studies in horticulture and design locally at Loyalist Collage, as well as through courses in the US and Europe, have helped her shape her rural properties into a destination for flower lovers and a hub for those seeking locally grown blooms.
From humble beginnings five years ago, Dahlia May Flower Farm has been featured in Better Homes and Gardens, The Toronto Star, Canadian Florist Magazine and more. Dahlia May was named Agri-Business of the Year in 2019 at the Quinte Business Achievement Award and Melanie was awarded the title of Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 2018.
