What makes the business successful?

The Weerite Gerbera Farm journey began in 1986, with the current Vendor growing flowers on the Weerite Gerbera farm. When the Vendor realised there was a significant demand for fresh cut flowers to be directly supplied to florists, he set about expanding, building hothouses, and eventually using hydroponics to grow better quality Gerberas.

Weerite is a small country town about a one-hour drive from Warrnambool and is where the flowers are grown. The farm has cold storage and hydroponics set up for the specially built hothouses that grow the specialty gerbera flowers. The cool room at the farm stores the flowers until they are sent out (daily) for florists and wholesalers, as well as the Warrnambool store.

The farm's highway location makes it ideal for opening to the public to also sell flowers direct. A short drive to Camperdown would make farm sales a viable option that would appeal to locals and travellers alike. With room to expand flower growth by the possible addition of three more hothouses, it leaves more opportunity to build the business and add other flower species.

The Fresh Flower Market Warrnambool retail store sells cut flowers to the public for wholesale prices and beautiful flower arrangements and bouquets. They also sell an assortment of gifts and gift cards and run an eCommerce website. The Fresh Flower Market retail customers can order flowers and gifts online, where they offer a daily $10 delivery service to Warrnambool and $20 delivery to its surroundings.

The Fresh Flower Market also have cold storage in the store and transit, ensuring all stock is kept fresh. The Fresh Flower Market in Warrnambool sources other types of quality fresh flowers from the Footscray markets directly from growers all over Australia and internationally twice weekly to add to the variety on offer.
