We spread the love for flowers, from our flower farm in Holland to your garden!
Hey! We are Marlies and Linda, the driving forces behind FAM Flower Farm, which consists of two Dutch FAMily flower farms located in the flower bulb region - next to Keukenhof in Lisse, Holland. We have been friends since middle school and we both married, "growers"! For a long time, we played with the idea of how to share more of our beautiful products with the world. Our flower bulbs and dahlia tubers sold all over the world but we didn't know the people who bought them and we never received feedback about them. Thanks to social media, it has become possible to tell our story, share our fields and beautiful flowers with other flower fans. Now, the best part is that we are in direct contact with our customers! They are often surprised to learn how easy it is to plant bulbs or tubers and how long you can enjoy the flowers - both in the garden and in the house! All the enthusiastic reactions give us lots of energy and the feedback we receive helps us keep improving! FAM not only stands for family but also for feminine because we like to give a feminine touch to our photos, stories and packaging.
Meet our FAMILY, look in the heart of our nursery and follow the Dutch seasons via Instagram. Enjoy our tulips and daffodils in spring and all the cheerful and special dahlias in summer and autumn. We are proud and want to share our colorful moments with you. We hope that you get excited as well and start to plant tulip bulbs and dahlia tubers - it really isn't difficult and they are so much fun. To ensure that you enjoy your flower garden optimally, we will give you lots of tips, tricks and inspiration.

Meet our families:
Family Van der Slot
HENK is the only son in the Van der Slot family. Together with his three sisters, he grew up around the flower bulbs and started working as a young boy on the flower farm. Tractor riding was (and still is!) his big hobby. Henk is a real flower bulb lover. He goes for the very best and most beautiful species, knows all the characteristics of tulips/daffodils and enjoys his work. He is proud that the flower field land is owned by the Van der Slot family for over 200 years.
LINDA grew up on her parents’ flower farm in Noordwijkerhout. Therefore, her passion for flowers started early. Floral Marketing is her way of life. Arranging and photographing flowers has always been her hobby and is now an important part of FAM Flower Farm.
BRITT is crazy about cats. Every year there is a litter of young kittens. She loves to work at the farm and on the fields with her father. (She is a great model for our pictures too!)
TESS wants to have an explanation for everything that grows and flourishes. Lovingly, she wants fresh flowers in her own bedroom every day. She enjoys helping us with packing bulbs and wrapping accessories.
Grandfather HANS and Grandmother RINA also live at the farm and are happy to help out.
HUBERT runs the dahlia farm. After completing his education at the agricultural school, he began to grow flowers on the land at the age of 16. Both his grandfathers and his father were growers, so he also grew up on the farm. The cultivation of tubers and seeds, harvesting and delivery to our customers is all regulated by Hubert. A specialist in the field of dahlias, who is always looking for new and special types of these flowers.
MARLIES is the organizational force behind the farm, family, house and garden. Always working with pleasure, enthusiasm, creativity and continually looking for new ideas and inspiration. She has a great eye for color combinations!
DAAN is the oldest son, he gladly helps his father with the business during school holidays. Preferably with his best friends, so that they can have a lot of fun working together during the weeding and harvesting of the flowers.
MEREL is the youngest daughter, who enjoys helping grandpa in the vegetable garden and grows her own flowers and herbs. She is a great model for our flower pictures!
With cats, goats, chickens, a vegetable garden and fruit trees there is always something going on around our FAM Flower Farm.
We hope to meet you one day in real life or via Instagram!
Love from Holland,
Marlies & Linda
