We provide straw between the rows so kneeling as you pick won't be uncomfortable. We also provide restroom and handwashing facilities, as well as a shady area to sit and relax while enjoying a free bottle of water after you pick or while you wait fot fellow pickers to finish up. This year, we will have an area for children to play as well, should they choose not to pick with their parents. We do recommend bringing your sunscreen, but we will supply bugspray should flies or mosquitoes be a nusiance. While we do welcome children, we ask that you leave all pets at home, as it is much too hot for them to stay in the vehicle, and they will not be allowed in the patch. (UPDATED: June 11, 2015, JBS)


Flower Picking Tips, and Information

Farms that offer U-pick or pick-your-own flowers are becoming more common.

  • Once picked, quickly get the stems into water
  • Get them out of the hot sun after picking to increase shelf life.  Cool shade is best.
  • Re-cut stems while underwater - once you get home. Making a fresh cut, while the cut end is submerged helps the stem to take up water and avoid a vapor lock.
