EcoTulips is pleased to announce that their company has been granted organic certification from California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF). Certification confirms that the company’s import, warehousing, and sales processes meet the standards of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Organic Program, making EcoTulips the only supplier of organic flower bulbs in the U.S. Co-owners Jeroen and Keriann Koeman began importing organic flower bulbs - tulips, daffodils, crocuses, and hyacinths - from Holland in 2009. Sales doubled from 2010-2011 due to their highly successful Eco-Flower Bulb Fundraiser program and the 2011 introduction of their bulbs into all 40 Whole Foods Market’s Mid-Atlantic stores.

The Koemans will expand their wholesale division this year to include additional retail stores and garden centers. “Consumer demand for organic seeds and bulbs is on the rise and EcoTulips looks forward to working with additional retailers to provide a high quality organic alternative to conventionally grown flower bulbs,” says Jeroen Koeman.

In addition to importing, the Koemans grow tulips for picking at their organic farm. The Rodale Institute (a nonprofit dedicated to pioneering organic farming through research and outreach) will also showcased EcoTulips’ flowers at its first Organic Tulip Festival this past April in Kutztown, Pennsylvania.

EcoTulips will be launching their “Happy Bee” bulb mix made up of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, botanical tulips, crocus, and grape hyacinths. This mix will provide the bees with a healthy, pesticide-free pollen source from early to late spring and comes in a variety of colors. EcoTulips met with several bee keepers and handpicked this mix to ensure a show-stopping experience for bees and gardeners alike. Single varieties are available for both wholesale and retail sales at www.ecotulips.com.
