FLOWER U-PICK
FAQs

Our Farm's aim is to open for Spring U-Pick in April and go through mid June, and open up again for Fall U-Pick around October through the first freeze.  Our U-Pick is entirely dependent upon the weather.

Q: When is the Farm open to the public for U_PICK?

A: Friday - Sunday.

Gates open at dawn and close at dark. Consider planning your Farm visit during the coldest parts of the day (morning and evening).

Q:  Do you allow photography shoots and/or private groups?

A:  Yes! Tuesday-Wednesday.

Our Farm is a beautiful setting for photography shoots and many groups, such as wedding parties, schools, nursing homes or corporate teams prefer private U-PICKS. See more info on our SHOP PAGE

Q: What should I bring?

A: We supply everything you need for U-PICK at the Farm, however, we advise wearing outdoor clothes and shoes, sun protection, such as hats and sunscreen and bug spray.  You are welcome to bring food/drinks for a Farm picnic if you'd like.  Make a day of your visit!  

Q: What options do you offer?

A: We offer two size options to collect your flowers and both are available on site:

 

Mason Jars and Flower Buckets. Both are yours to keep with your U-PICK purchase.

Mason Jars ($20): smaller than the buckets, but are reusable and easily transported.  This option is perfect for kids!

Buckets ($45): larger receptacle to collect many, many stems.  Ideal for creating numerous arrangements once you get your bucket home.

STEP-BY-STEP U-PICK
INSTRUCTIONS

Once you get to the Farm!

*U-PICK operates on a self-serve honor system.  We choose to operate like this so that we can open the Farm more frequently and for longer hours, giving people more opportunity to visit the Farm as often as possible.*

01

CHECK IN

Check in at the Farm Stand.  There you'll find all the supplies and cutting directions.

02

CHOOSE AND PREPARE YOUR CONTAINER

Choose whether you'd like a jar or a bucket and grab one.  Add one packet of floral food to your container and fill it with water using one of the six pickets located at the left side of the Farm.

03

CUT

Grab a pair of garden clippers from the Farm Stand to use for cutting stems.  DO NOT cut the entire plant and DO NOT uproot plants. Cut single stems, making sure to leave some stem and at least a few leaves of the plant in tact to ensure it continues to produce. Place your stems into your jar or bucket as you peruse the Farm and make your flower choices.

04

ARRANGE

Once your container is full, head to our shaded hoop house area.  Here you can admire your fresh floral choices, arrange them, and relax in the Farm environment.

05

PAYMENT

When you are ready to leave, return your garden clippers to the Farm Stand and make your payment.  There is a cash slot connected to the Stand or you can pay using Venmo to @DENISE-ZIS    *Cash/Venmo only, please.*
