PICK YOUR OWN BOUTIQUE

We can’t wait to welcome you in person to Barefoot Blossom Farm where you will take a moment out of life’s busy hustle and bustle to walk amongst the rows of beautiful flowers and enjoy what nature really has to offer.  Take a moment to snap some pictures of you and the loved ones you bring along.

Dates for this event will be posted and updated closer to the growing season as things come in to bloom. Please arrive at start time for flower cutting and bouquet making demonstration.  

All dates are subject to weather.  If we have severe weather your ticket will be refunded.  Limited tickets sold to each event.

PRICING

All U-Picks will be by ticket only.  Please join our mailing list or follow us on Facebook/Instagram for all U-Pick updates and availability.   Please know that anyone picking will need a ticket.  Limited tickets sold at each U-Pick.

$29 - CUP OF FLOWERS

A more portable option coming for this year. Fill your cup that will go with you and fit right in your car cup holder.  Perfect to transport and then fill your vase at home. This makes a very large bouquet.

$39 - SINGLE PITCHER OF FLOWERS

Stroll through the garden and fill your pitcher as you go. Most people fit enough to fill two vases at home.  This is a great sturdy picking vessel and was the FAVORITE choice last year for Upick.  It also makes for great pictures.

Let's make a list

WHAT YOU SHOULD BRING TO A U-PICK

CLEAN CONTAINER

to transport your flowers home in. Your container should be clean enough to drink out of!

CLIPPERS OR SCISSORS

We do have these available on the farm but should you choose to use your own, feel free to bring them.

FARM APPROPRIATE SHOES

You will be walking from the parking area, to the flowers, and finally taking the necessary steps to fill your pitcher.

SUNSCREEN

The flowers need sun to grow so they are in an open field.  Please be prepared for the weather.

WATER

Hydration (for you) is always important and even in the evening and morning the sun can get HOT.

RESPECTFUL CHILDREN

This is our home and we are excited to share our land with you. Children should be supervised.  We have worked hard to grow the flowers.   Picking and Pitching is not kind.

What to do 

WHEN YOU ARRIVE

1. PARK

Park in the lot on the right as you pull in. If anyone is handicapped or has difficulty walking please pull up the drive. There is additional/limited parking up by the house.

2. FOLLOW THE SIGNS

Follow the signs and walk up/over to the U-Pick Flower area with your bucket/container that you brought.   Check in with us and wait for the garden tour that begins at the start time.

3. GRAB YOUR PICKING CONTAINER

After the tour of the flower field we will take you to the containers where you pick up yours based on your ticket.  This also helps us “measure” the amount of flowers you cut.

4. PICK YOUR FLOWERS

We will be available to show you how to cut your flowers by the u-pick patch. When picking your flowers make sure to strip the leaves off. 

5. SNAP SOME PICTURES

Enjoy your time and make sure to stop and snap a picture or two. Share on social media pleas. We love to see your finished bouquets. @barefootblossomfarm

6. TRANSFER FOR TAKE HOME

When you’re finished transfer your flowers into the bucket that you brought to take them home in. Our single white pitchers and pitcher for two are not for sale.  Single Cups are for you to carry on your way.

PLEASE BE AWARE

Our policies

*Please do not bring any pets.  Please inform us ahead of time if you have a service pet. *

 

With so many flowers and keeping our own bees on the farm we have lots of bees.  As always with flowers there is an abundance of bees foraging and pollinating on the farm.  While they may not be interested in stinging while they are working, there is always the chance of being stung and it may not be the safest place for people with bee allergies. 

We also ask that everyone be respectful of the land and animals.
