Adene Nieuwoudt is the passionate force behind Adene’s Farm Flowers where her love of nature drew her to cultivating flowers. We are a working flower farm in Wolseley, Western Cape, dedicated to producing high quality, beautiful and long-lasting fresh-cut flowers and foliage. The flower farm is nestled in the Breede River Valley region where our relatively mild winters and long, hot summers allow us to grow a wide range of flowers from anemones to dahlias.
The Farm (Platvlei Fruit Farm) where Adenes Farm Flowers is situated is a Family Farm that was purchased by Adene's husbands (Andrew Nieuwoudt's) grandfather in 1934 (Chris Dicey). Adene used to be a fashion buyer in Cape Town when she met her husband Andrew, who has a degree in agriculture and 20 years of fruit farming experience. When Adene moved to the farm she pursued photography and went on to photograph 400 weddings in 10 years.
When taking pictures at the weddings Adene had the opportunity to meet and form working relationships with a number of florists. Many of the flower varieties used at weddings/events were not grown commercially in South Africa and were imported and costly - this is where Adene saw the opportunity and decided on a new venture. The business at first started small, but has grown into a busy and productive 5 hectare flower farm with over 200 different varieties of flowers. The garden and avenues are expanding. We have started a successful seed and bulb range with the best cut flower varieties in the world. Our open days welcome thousands of visitors each year - a pleasure to walk through 50 000 dahlias, 4000 hydrangeas, thousands of lisianthus and many more flowering plants.
There will always be the seasonal favourites in the garden, but Adene will always challenge herself with new and exciting varieties and business ideas.
The 5 Hectare flower farm, established in 2016, has a focus on using eco-friendly growing methods, being environmentally responsible and balancing farm with family.
