Fresh Cut by Shannon Family Farms

When to Visit:

Flowers will typically prefer to be picked in the morning or late afternoon/evening to prevent wilting. Some flowers will tolerate the strong sun/heat better than others and will perk back up with a fresh cut when you arrange them.

Visit when you have time to look around and enjoy the experience. You don’t want to be in a rush. Plan to spend at least an hour enjoying the farm and choosing your flowers. Walking the fields is a great opportunity to spend time with friends and family creating bouquets and memories!

Check the weather! As an outdoor experience, there will be times that we must close for the safety of our guests (ie. thunderstorms). Please check social media or contact us directly if you are unsure whether to head our way or not due to weather.

What to Bring:

Bring a container to take your flowers home in once picked. We do have buckets available to purchase (if needed) and paper to wrap flowers in for travel if you forget a container for transport. We will provide the clippers to use in the field and a water source to fill your bucket/container with fresh cool water.

Bring a hat and/or sunscreen for warm, sunny days. There is little shade in the field so it can get quite warm.

Bring shoes that may get dirty. The field is a part of the great outdoors and can be muddy and dusty at times.

Bring your friends and/or family and a camera to enjoy nature’s beauty with you!

NOTE: We are a working livestock farm in addition to offering the u-pick flower farm; therefore, we encourage you to leave pets at home when you visit the farm.

Plan & Pick:

Before choosing which flowers to cut take a look at all we have to offer! You may find some old favorites and a few new and different flowers you’d like to include in your choices. Depending on when you visit, the flower choices will vary and change throughout the season.

Flowers will work best to arrange if cut with about an arm length of stem and will sometimes provide you with several blooms with one cut. Deep cuts will help the flowers regenerate strong new blooms and allow you plenty of stem to trim as you arrange. You can always trim shorter, but we cannot put back on trimmed stems to lengthen it again!

Vases are available to purchase as well, if you are creating a gift for someone special.

Once you’ve purchased your flowers, do not plan to leave them in your vehicle too long. The hot temperatures in the vehicle will quickly deteriorate the quality of fresh, local flowers. Flowers prefer to be cool once cut to achieve the best vase life.

You will receive instructions for keeping your flowers fresh and a packet of flower preservative before you leave the farm.

Make a fresh cut on each stem as you arrange at home.

Strip any foliage that will be under the water line.

Enjoy the process of creating your own natural work of art!
