Specializing in specialty cut flower crops grown using natural methods, Meguma Meadows was founded to provide high quality, local flowers to the Nova Scotian market.

 

Located in Conquerall Mills on the South Shore, we believe in doing what we love while promoting and collaborating with other small, community supported businesses.

We aim to connect people with the beauty of the natural world and promote local floriculture while creating breathtaking designs.

We believe the health benefits of both growing and enjoying plants and flowers to be limitless.

We love what we do and cherish the plants we grow. We know this translates to the plants, the planet and ultimately to you. 

Laura Besaw, founder and owner of Meguma Meadows, inherited her green thumb though her Mother and Grandfather. Raised in Antigonish, NS in a family of five children she followed her youngest brother Stephen, of HoneyTree Farm and Orchard to the South Shore in 2016.

Always interested in plants, particularly edibles, she learned horticulture while working at Pleasant Valley Nurseries in Antigonish. The many, many teachers along her horticultural path include most recently Barbara Jewell of Island Meadow Farms in York PEI where she apprenticed in 2019.

Why Meguma?

Meguma is the term for the

geological make-up which forms the southern part of Nova Scotia where the farm is located.

Originally part of Africa it collided into Avalon, the original land mass of North America.
