This year was the best experience since we have been buying from you. Your delivery driver John was very professional and very helpful. The flowers this year looked bigger and better than they ever have. The people that bought them were very pleased. This has been such a good fundraiser for the 4-H program and we look forward to next year.

Again beautiful flowers,

Thanks

[W]orking with you and Parks Brothers was a great experience! I will definitely call you again for another fund raiser, the poinsettias are beautiful, they are much prettier than the ones you could buy at the store for the same price. You and the driver were the only people from the company that I worked with but you were both very friendly and helpful. I don’t have any complaints at all except that I wish I had learned about your company years ago!

I was not pleased with my poinsettia fundraiser. I was told they would be here the week of December 5th but did not know that meant last minute on the last day of the week. I did not have time to sell them as expected and definitely lost money in this potential fundraiser thus far. Also, I was told they would only be in pots and that I would need to purchase speed covers before delivering them. I purchased poly foil only to find out that was a waste of money since they come pre wrapped in red plastic covers. I do wish I would have known this information before losing money on this fundraiser.

Though they are beautiful poinsettias, I will not be referring this fundraiser to other schools and ag teachers.

2016 Mum Testimonials:

The mums were great; we could have sold more. The size was perfect, color was good; some were not completely opened but opened in 3 or 4 days. Looking forward to next year.

Gary Graham
Ag Science Teacher
Grapeland High School
Grapeland, TX

 

Anyway, [the mums] are gorgeous and other than many of our customers being aggravated about not being able to get the colors they ordered and paid for they loved the mums. We will definitely order many more and much smarter next year. I tried to tell our people that it doesn’t hurt to get their order for next year as they deliver and we can order much earlier next year. My only concern is if you had that large of a turnout this year how do I know that everyone won’t order like that next year and still be ahead of us. Anyway, we will try to be way ahead of schedule.

Thank you for all of your hard work. Looking forward to working with you for many years to come.

Although white will never be my favorite they were some of the largest ones and absolutely gorgeous!

Thanks

The fundraiser went well. Everyone loved the mums and the size for the money. The blooms looked great.

It was great just the issue of no yellow mums this year. Just need to do earlier again next year so we don’t run into that. Delivery was great!! You have been awesome to work with and get back to me super fast, which is appreciated!! You did receive the payment correct?

I cannot say Thank You enough to Ron with Parks Brothers for all of his help with the mum fundraiser. I work for the American Cancer Society and I came across the mum fundraiser last year. I ordered 128 and sold all of them with little effort.

This year I extended the fundraiser idea to all of the staff in Western Oklahoma and our Relay For Life teams jumped on board. Together we will profit over $26,000 for cancer research just from selling the mums!!!

Every team that has sold them has sold out and could have sold more. Ron was a tremendous asset to us. He is so kind and always returns phone calls, changes orders, or anything we needed to make the process as easy as possible. We plan to sell them again next year so get ready Ron!!!!!

Thanks again for the great fundraising opportunity!

2014 Poinsettia Testimonials:

 

I wanted to send you a quick thank you for the poinsettias and delivery. All of my parents are extremely happy. The poinsettias are gorgeous. Some of my parents even said that they still have their poinsettia alive from last year. It’s a great fundraiser and it gives the students profit fortheir spring trip. I hope you have a very happy holiday.

This is definitely the easiest fundraiser we do have done. This was our third year participating in the Plants for Profit Fundraiser. The Poinsettias are absolutely beautiful! They are brilliantly colorful and full. Each plant arrives in perfect condition. They practically sell themselves. The delivery driver is always on time and Leigh Ann is always eager to answer any questions and prompt to return phone calls and e-mails. From great product to excellent customer service, Parks Bros Farms is a wonderful company to work with.

We took part in 3 of your plant projects this year. I will give feedback on them individually.

Spring bedding plants: not our best project! We couldn’t compete with the prices of our local businesses at all. We will not be doing this one again.

Mums: Worked great. Appreciate the hardiness and ease of handling as compared with the poinsettias. A few concerns – bronze was NOT the bronze people were looking for. Our reds/bronzes/and burgundy was pretty much the same color. With any of the differences in color, there needs to be a real obvious color difference. We will be increasing our mum sales next fall.

Poinsettias: It is finally beginning to be “easy” to sell them. There were sure differences in sizes this year. We had some that were very small. The red was the worst. Our $10 red was the same size and looked just like the $3.97 red from Walmart. Other colors were bigger and more hardy looking. The Pinks, and Whites were stunning this year. Marble was not the best marble we have had. The ones with a wider pink stripe sell better than the ones we got this year. Jingle Bell was a big hit. We will be adjusting our poinsettia sales down in number to around 550 to 600 plants. We are currently ordering about 200 too many for quick movement from our office.

The poinsettias arrived smoothly and beautifully! All of our customers have been overjoyed by how gorgeous the flowers are. This fundraiser was very successful for our organization and raised just under $1000.00. Not only was the Director of Temporary Emergency Services pleased, but also our Board of Directors and parent organization, United Way. My director has requested that I place another order for next year, if possible at this time. We would like increase our purchase to 150 poinsettias, remaining at the 10″ size. Thank you so much for helping us with this project and we look forward working with you in the future!

2014 Fall Mum Fundraiser Testimonials:

 

We had a great fundraiser with Parks Brothers this year. It was the quickest fundraiser I’ve ever seen! The only constructive feedback that I have is to come up with an easier method to ID the different colors of mums once delivered. The mums we received weren’t clearly marked and since they aren’t blooming it took us a while to sort them out. The quality was GREAT! We will definitely be a return customer!

I wanted to let you know everything went great!! Once the driver found the right road, everything went very well. The plants all looked wonderful and are in perfect condition. I would also like to complement the driver, not only was he very friendly and polite. He also helped unload the plants off the racks, which none of the other drives have done before, and this was very helpful. As of right now there are only 2 mums left for us to sell. Thank you very very much for all your help this year!! And we look forward to working with y’all next year!!

Thanks again,

Thank you to Parks Brothers for always being so helpful and offering such quality products. Our mum fundraiser was such a hit that we sold out in 12 hours and called and made a second order. We can always depend on Parks Brothers to answer any questions we may have and go out of their way to help make our fundraisers successful.

Parks Brothers did an amazing job with our first Mum Fundraiser for our elementary school. Ron, our representative, worked very hard to help us with our first year in selling mums. His explanations and helpful tips made our fundraiser a success! The mums were prettier than we expected and HUGE! The colors and quality are extraordinary, and the mums came in very nice pots. Many people wished they had ordered more mums once they saw how beautiful and exceptional they were. Thank you Parks Brothers for selling quality products and providing remarkable customer service.

Thank you Ron!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the mums!!!!! They looked awesome & were huge. Most of the ones I’ve seen at Lowe’s & Wal-Mart didn’t look very well this year. This was a great fundraiser & we definitely want to do it again next year. I think we will sell more now that everyone has seen how nice they are.

All plants were delivered with ease. I had a few extras to load up alone due to the delivery being about 40 mins late due to a highway accident because I had parents who had to go to work. But it all worked out. The driver did call and we were all on board.

Thanks so much and we appreciate all your hard work. The plants are gorgeous as always.

Hi, just wanted to say thank you! The plants I looked at were beautiful! I was a little scared because we have never done this before. I am very pleased.

I got to the school early, just in case. The driver was 10 min. early (which was fine) and very friendly. This was a very good first experience!!

Again, thank you! Have a Merry Christmas!!!!!!

Just a note to say Thank You for all the help you’ve given me during our poinsettia fundraiser for the South Fulton Middle School Cheerleaders. Our poinsettia sales have helped us reach our goal of $20,000 to send the 18 cheerleaders and 1 alternate to the National Cheer Competition in Dallas, TX, in January.

This was my first time dealing with a poinsettia fundraiser, but you made it very easy. From the first phone call, I felt that you really wanted this to be a good event for us. You’ve answered all of my questions quickly and completely, and you’ve been so great to work with.

Whenever I called, you were willing to help me with whatever questions I had, even the dumb ones! You followed up on things I might not be sure about, too. It’s been a true pleasure working with you, and I will certainly not mind doing this again if I’m involved in next year’s fundraising.

Wishing you and everyone a very Merry and Blessed Christmas,

Lori Robertson
Fundraising Co-Chair

I wanted to send you and the staff of Parks Brothers Farm a huge “Thank You”. This was my first time being in charge of such a large Fundraiser for the girls varsity dance team.

Whenever I called, you were willing to take the time to speak with me and help me with the process. You gave me great advice and you definitely had patience.

When we received the Poinsettias they were beautiful and all the parents were excited to get them delivered. The driver was awesome. He was in great mood, friendly and helpful.

The overall experience with Parks Brothers Farm has been wonderful and I would recommend anyone doing business with the company without any hesitation.

Once again, Thank You.  Look Forward to doing business again.

Thanks for an absolutely wonderful fundraiser! We sold all of the poinsettias! We could have sold more! I am getting calls and texts today asking if we have any left.

And a HUGE thank you for the maroon ones! I am enjoying “mine”. Gig ’em Aggies! We sold most of them but decided to bless nursing home residents with the few that we had left on Friday. We could have sold them… But decided to give as you have!

All of the plants were beautiful.  I will definitely want to make this a tradition.

Thanks again for making it possible.

2012 Mum Fundraiser Testimonials

The mums went great, both trucks were there on time (896 12” mums delivered on Saturday) and the drivers were very friendly & helpful. Other than the weather-rain, sleet, hail-everything went perfect. A lot of the new people were surprised at how big the mums were :~)

Like we discussed, I want to pre-order 20 cases of 6″ red poinsettias (160 plants) and set up delivery…

Thanks!

Polk County 4-H is very pleased with our Poinsettia fundraiser. Of our 1000 plants, we sold 810 of them. The others were donated to the hospital, assisted living home, and two nursing homes. There were a few we discarded after they were used in the Christmas parade to advertise our fundraiser…. 🙂

We want to participate again next Christmas with 1000 plants. We learned a lot and hopefully built a good client base to make the program even more successful next year.

While we do our utmost to produce and ship the best quality of plants possible, we do not always satisfy every customer.  If you are new and decide to order with us or are an existing customer, please let us know if there is a problem at the earliest possible time so that we have the opportunity to rectify the problem.

We have just finished the most disappointing poinsettia sale ever!  As I expressed to you on the phone, the 6 inch plants that you shipped us were the worst we have ever received.

I want to thank you and your staff for being such a great help and so patient with me.  This is the first fundraiser I have headed for our softball team and you all made it such an easy task and we cleared over $3600.00 in just a two week period of sales.  We started late and it was rushed, but there is no way we could have made such a quick, easy profit with anything else.  Our moms are very excited about doing this again next year.   I won’t be involved because my youngest is graduating,  YEA!   But,  I know they will do even better because we just didn’t have the time to reach everyone we could have.  The poinsettias were BEAUTIFUL and everyone that we delivered to was very pleased and we are still getting compliments about them.  Again, thank you so much and here’s wishing you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I am last year’s President of the Langham Creek JROTC Booster Club. Last year was our first opportunity to work with Parks Brothers. We chose the Poinsettia fundraiser. We had looked at other alternatives and decided to work with Parks Brothers because of the very good wholesale price of the plants, the excellent BBB report and the helpful attitude of the employees I spoke with. From the beginning, communication was excellent.

The delivery date became a small issue, as we needed our delivery on a date which might have inconvenienced the company. Our representative was very kind to make adjustments to their delivery schedule in order to deliver the poinsettias on the date we requested. The delivery arrived as promised and within the times quoted. It is a plus that they ship their own plants. It allows them to adjust their schedule as needed & since it is free, or rather, already included in the cost of the plants, we avoided the expense of shipping via FedEx or UPS.

The plants are very beautiful. They are not tall, with lots of green leaves, as one might expect from a retail store. These plants have a striking, deep, rich color and appear as a mound of red, with the green leaves was an accent, rather than as the predominant color. The blooms are very large. Our customers loved the poinsettias.

Packaging was excellent. You are provided with helpful information regarding the care of the plants. Our customers really appreciated the care sheets, which we delivered with each plant. The company does not provide paper copies of the sales sheet, or any other paperwork. These are available to download and print out as needed. We created our own sales sheet, as the one provided by Parks Brothers lists all the colors available. We chose to only offer red poinsettias. At first, I thought this an inconvenience, but once we designed our own sales sheets, we were able to print out just what we needed and customize the sheets to reflect our organization, as well as add additional information which was helpful to the cadets. I will be happy to send you copies of the sales sheet and other paperwork we created so you may get an idea of what you might do.

Last, but not least, there was no pressure to sent payment right away. Through the whole process, the experience was very enjoyable. Our representative & the staff at Parks Brothers were always ready to answer questions & work with us. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone, and am confident we will work with Parks Brothers again this year.

The plants that we receive from Parks Brothers Farm have always been of exceptional value. In the last 3 years we have been able to consistently increase our order size due to word of mouth. Our customers know, Parks Brothers poinsettias are the best!

After years of fundraising, this is by far the easiest way of raising money I have ever been a part of. The poinsettia plants speak for themselves ~ quality, beauty, and top of the line in the care of the plants. The professionalism of the staff and customer service is second to none! The outcome of this successful business relationship has planted a seed of success for our program, and we are looking forward to watching that seed grow for many years to come, thanks to Parks Brothers Farm.

Parks Brothers Farm saved the day for us this year. We over sold poinsettias during our winter fundraiser and needed a new grower to step up and help fill our orders. The folks at Parks Brothers met and then exceeded our expectations. All the poinsettias were big and beautiful. Delivery fit our schedule and above all, their price allowed us a greater profit margin. Our customers loved the Parks Brothers poinsettias and so do we!

Poinsettia sale is becoming a Christmas tradition at Alpena.  This sale makes our chapter some much needed funds.
