Are You A Professional Photographer?

We offer special deals to photographers interested in hosting mini-sessions or would like to make our venue a regular destination for their clients! 

  • When do You-Picks occur?
    You-Picks occur on select dates listed on our event calendar. View the "Upcoming Events" tab to view more! Note: Our farm is not open for visitors outside of event hours.
  • How long does a You-Pick usually take?
    The average picker spends about 45 -60 minutes exploring our gardens, harvesting stems, and visiting the arranging station to wrap or vase their blooms. If you're a regular around here, you'll be able to harvest your bouquet and wrap in a matter of minutes! We encourage all You-Pick goers to make the most out of their visit and hang around the property for a while! Feel free to pack a lunch, bring a good book, and get comfortable at our picnic tables!
  • Do You-Picks get cancelled due to weather?
    We host all of our events rain or shine! However, in the case of extreme in-climate weather (such as severe storms, floods, or government issued weather-warnings), we will cancel our events with as much notice as possible. To stay up to date on weather announcements, join our newsletter, follow us on social media, and/or check our website for updates.
  • What activities are available for children at a You-Pick?
    We encourage kids to participate in exploring our gardens, harvesting flowers, and learning about the various flora and fauna they may find around our farm! We provide children's safety snips for harvesting stems and our staff is available to give guidance on how to cut flowers. For families who choose to spend extra time hanging in our gardens or enjoy a packed lunch, complimentary coloring pages and pencils are available upon request!
  • Are food and drinks available at You-Picks?
    We provide complimentary water at all of our events - bonus points for bringing your own water bottle! Additional snacks are available for purchase in our Farm Store.
  • Can I take photos at a You-Pick?
    Absolutely! Please feel free to capture the beauty of our flowers, our property, and of course... the people you're with! We'd love it if you tagged us on social media or wherever you post your photos so we can enjoy the moment too! However, we prohibit professional photo shoots during You-Pick hours. We kindly ask pro photographers and their clients to schedule a private photo shoot separate from our public events.
  • Can I share a You-Pick Pass with my family?
    Absolutely! A single You-Pick Pass can be used by anyone in your family! Simply bring your You-Pick Pass lanyard to any You-Pick event to redeem the benefits of the pass. Forgot your pass? No worries, we can look you up in our system!
  • Can I redeem multiple bouquets per You-Pick with my You-Pick Pass?
    The You-Pick Pass is good for one bouquet per You-Pick event - any additional bouquets or buckets for harvest may be purchased onsite!
