Sun Valley Floral Farm
A fourth generation grower, Lane DeVries was born in the Netherlands to a family with a long tradition of growing flowers. He received his degree in Horticulture in Holland and then immigrated to the US in 1983. Securing a job at Sun Valley, Lane came to Arcata, California and built the first Dutch Glass greenhouse to produce lilies and tulips year round. Accomplishing this task, he soon became the Greenhouse Manager, then General Manager and now President and CEO.
Lane holds a passion for his company. He wholeheartedly leads the Sun Valley team in producing the finest cut flowers available. Lane’s contagious enthusiasm for growing flowers is evident in the very essence of Sun Valley. Our team members share his passion and his drive to bring the highest quality flowers to market.
We grow flowers in soil, just the way nature intended. The highest quality bulbs – with superb soil and optimal growing conditions – lead to bigger blooms, richer foliage, stronger stems and a longer vase life. Our farms are located in California, one at the northern end of the state, one at the southern end of the state. This gives us the opportunity to grow our crops year round, in the perfect climate and conditions for each flower.
We are Veriflora certified. Veriflora certification ensures flowers are grown sustainably in three key areas: quality handling practices, environmental responsibility and promotion of a healthy, equitable workplace.
Sun Valley’s primary crops are bulb flowers, specializing in tulips, lilies and iris. We also grow a wide assortment of other varieties throughout the year.
Our growers and designers are on the cutting edge of current floral trends.
