WINSTON’S FAIR TRADE AGREEMENT STATES:  “Unlike many florists who purchase their roses from the wholesale markets, we buy our roses directly from the farmers. Our owners and buyers have visited the farms and seen first hand the operation and environment from which we purchase our product. The farms meet the highest ethical and environmental standards in the marketplace. We feel that supporting these small farmers directly encourages good business practices and the best working environments for farmers and farm workers in the region.
