Dutch Mill Gardens Inc.
Dutch Mill Gardens is a 250 acre fresh cut flower farm in Lynden, Ontario, owned and operated by Mike and Angela Scharringa. Dutch Mill Gardens has been in business for over 30 years. Originally owned by Mike’s parents, Ed and Elaine Scharringa, they have now passed down the family farm. Mike keeps busy as the owner, manager of operations and sales, as well as raising his quadruplets with his wife Angela.
The farm specializes in Sunflower production and fresh cut country bouquets. All flowers are hand picked and bunched into their beautiful bouquets right on the farm. With over 110 acres dedicated to their sunflowers, they provide a wide variety for their bouquets, which are inclusive of other flowers such as amaranthus, strawflower, millet, gomphrena, celosia, salvia, kale, and much more. Each bouquet is made with a special “Taste of Country” that brings a wonderful feeling of warmth into the home. “We take great pride in the health, and ultimately the clean and vibrant look of our sunflowers,” says Mike. Choosing the best variety of flowers and having the best growing practices has made them a leader in the industry. Dutch Mill Gardens is proud to service the mass market, farmers markets, florists, wholesale distributors, and the Ontario-Food Terminal.
