Farrant's Flower Shop
323 Farrant Street, Newport, VT 05855 (Map)

Established by Tom Farrant in 1869, Farrant's Greenhouses, Inc., has the distinction of being the oldest business in the Newport area.  In 1927, Harold Jenks purchased the greenhouses, providing a seasonal fare from annual garden plants and vegetables to fresh-cut flowers and arrangements.

In 1966, Farrant's added a flower shop in the center of Main Street where Betty (Jenks) and Jim McQuillen still have the shop more than 41 years later, in its original location at 153 Main Street.  The McQuillens still operate the greenhouse and usually their daughter Kathy is working at the flower shop, where she has worked for more than 38 years.  Ironically, approximately 100 years ago, Tom's daughter, Susan, had a flower shop in the exact same location where they are now!

The family welcomes customers with a personal touch, whether for a specail family celebration as a wedding or a more somber occasion as the loss of a loved one.  They are there for your most intimate floral needs.

Jim, Betty, and Kathy McQuillen are grateful for the loyal patronage of their many customers. "We wish to thank you for being part of our memorable history."

Farrant's Flower Shop accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover and Diner's Club.
