Farrant’s Flower Shop and Greenhouses

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 and Elsie Jenks purchased the greenhouses, providing a seasonal fare from annual garden plants and vegetables to indoor houseplants and fresh-cut flowers and arrangements. In 1966 Jim and Betty (Jenks) McQuillen and Peter and Lois Jenks added a flower shop in the center of Main Street, where Jim and Betty still have the shop at its original location more than 45 years later, managed by their daughter Kathy who has been there just shy of 40 years.

Ironically, Tom Farrant’s daughter Susan had operated a flower stand in this same location about 100 years ago! The Main Street shop will be operating as long as possible until the renovations of Main St. begin sometime this year…. Farrant’s will continue to operate their Farrants Pictureflower shop and greenhouse at their Farrant Street location (overlooking beautiful Lake Memphremagog from Farrants Point), where they will continue to welcome customers with a personal touch, whether for a special family celebration such as a wedding or a more somber occasion as the loss of a loved one. They are there for your most intimate floral needs. Major credit cards are accepted. Jim, Betty, and Kathy McQuillen are grateful for the loyal patronage of their many customers and say, “We wish to thank you for being part of our memorable history!”
