Flower FAQs

Below are some commonly asked questions.

Because we are a working farm, we do not have set hours that we are open to the public.    We typically are open on Fridays from 8:15 until 5:00 for open farmstand bouquets with extended days and hours on holiday weekends (Valentines, Easter, and Mothers Day)     Occasionally we do not have enough flowers to offer pre made bouquets on Fridays, but we always announce that on Instagram and Facebook. Other visits are by appointment only or with the purchase of tickets for you-picks. 

You-pick days will be announced on our social media platforms (Facebook and Instagram) and are dictated by how many flowers we have blooming at the time.   In order to provide our customers with the best experience, we do require a pre-purchased ticket from our website to ensure that the field is not too crowded and that we have enough flowers for everyone that shows up that day.   Each person over the age of 4 needs a ticket and the price of your ticket can be used towards your flower purchase or for products in the gift shop at the time of checkout.   

Flowers to expect in the u-cut area are: sunflowers, zinnias, gomphrena, celosia, cosmos, marigolds, snapdragons, and seasonal greenery.   

We love children and welcome them to come into the field to pick. We do ask that you supervise them closely and respect our plants and hard work. 

We offer two sizes of containers for you to fill – $20 for a small and $35 for a large.   We have clippers or you can bring your own.   To transport your flowers home, you can bring your own vessel to fill with water here or you may purchase the container from us that  you cut into for a nominal fee.

We love animals as much as anyone (we’ve got quite the zoo ourselves) but we can’t allow them on the farm.   We have two barn cats that are lovable but not fans of dogs. Thanks for understanding.

During you-pick season we have porta-johns available.

Absolutely.   With your ticket purchase you may take pictures/snapshots with your cell phones in the flowers. Photo shoots with professional photographers do need to be scheduled by emailing us at info@thefloweringranch.com  The fee for photo sessions is $60/hour, $325/full weekday, and $500 for Saturdays and Sundays.

Eggs from our free range hens (kept at another one of our farms) can be purchased for $3.25/dozen in the gift shop. Currently, we are sold out of our honey but hope to have more mid summer.  Our honeybee hives are at our home where we provide pollinator habitat for them there.

Currently, our summer subscriptions are sold out.   We will possibly add a fall dahlia subscription and will be offering a winter tulip subscription.   Watch our social media for details!
