Alexandra Farms is a boutique farm dedicated to growing nostalgic, romantic garden roses. The farm is located in the incredibly fertile savannah of Bogotá, high in the Andes Mountains of Colombia, where the warm days and cool nights are perfect for growing roses. Our garden roses are hand-cut, hand-graded and hand-packed by caring, rose-loving people.
We are the world’s largest garden rose grower, harvesting 300,000 stems per week – more than 15 million stems per year! We are also the largest David Austin® licensed English garden rose grower in the world.
We grow 65 commercial varieties of fresh cut garden roses from breeders in many countries, including Germany, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Denmark, England, and Japan. These garden roses fall into four collections: David Austin English Garden Roses, Deluxe Garden Roses, Princess Japanese Garden Roses and Wabara Garden Roses.
Alexandra Farms is certified under the Florverde Sustainable Flowers seal. Florverde is an environmental and social certification confirming our commitment to environmental best practices, employment protections and the responsible treatment of people, and health and safety requirements.
