Natural Beauty Perfected
Several years ago, we planted a few tubers just because a dear friend thought we should. Now, we plant over 1500 tubers each year because we LOVE to! Well, that may be a bit of a stretch . . . but WE DO LOVE DAHLIAS, and we aim to ‘Share our love of dahlias with others one flower at a time’!
During the weeks from mid-August through mid-October, part of our farm bursts into colorful splendor! The dahlia tubers that were painstakingly planted in May grow into beauties - some of which you can see pictured below. Each year we painstakingly plant hundreds of tubers and eagerly await the first bloom! Treasured by many, these beauties don't last very long when they go to market!! Great for parties, weddings, or simply enjoying in your home, dahlias will make a grand appearance no matter where they show up. Being a flower that carries little to no fragrance, they make great additions to dinner or buffet tables.
Have a special event in late August, September, or October? Contact us today for more information on how you can use Dahlia's to compliment your decor!
The Picture on Pick-Your-Own
Once our dahlias start producing fully, we open our field to those who enjoy the thrill of the hunt! Are you a bride-to-be looking for an economical solution to bridal flowers? Consider cutting your own dahlias and enlisting your friends to help make your flower arrangements and bouquets for your special event. Hosting a family reunion or party and want flowers to add a floral touch to your decor? These classy flowers can be dressed up for formal affairs or placed in simple mason jars for a down-home, country look. We think you will be happy with our quality product and fair pricing.
When visiting our field for cut-your-own:
Wear Comfortable Walking Shoes/Boots - you will be walking in a mowed field; uneven ground is a given and wet grass is common in the earlier part of the day.
Bring a bucket or comparable vessel for your flowers; we’ll supply some water.
Bring along your favorite pair of hand pruners or hand shearers (note: scissors do not work well as they usually are not sharp enough to make a clean cut on the flowers stems). We’ll be glad to lend you a pair of pruners to use while you are visiting if you do not have a pair.
Pick Your Own is closed for the 2023 season. We look forward to seeing you again next season!!
Florists and Event Planners
A lot of places sell flowers. But how many places can offer you locally-grown, high-quality, fresh-cut flowers at a fair price, all with no middle man who needs their cut? We know your bottom line matters, and we think you will be happy with our quality product, fair pricing, and delivery policies.
At last count, we had 44 varieties of these beautiful flowers, ranging in colors from pure white to a dark burgundy/almost black flower. Blooms sizes vary from the commanding AA size (10” + blooms) down through the popular ‘BB’ size (boasting blooms between 4” - 6”), and we even have some of the smallest of balls (pom poms in layman’s terms) that average 1” - 2” in size. Prime bloom time for these beauties is mid-August through and mid-October.
YOU CUT Option
$1.25 / stem
This option is cost effective and well worth the trip to the farm if you have the time. You can stroll through the patch and pick the flowers that best suit your needs. The patch is open weekdays from 8AM till 8PM for our event planners and florists only. Please contact us the day before you intend to come so that we can be sure someone is on hand or close by to help if needed.
WE CUT; YOU PICK-UP Option - $1.75 / stem
This option is still more cost effective than our delivery option. You tell us what colors and sizes you are looking for; we cut the flowers the morning of pick-up and put them in water for you. Unless otherwise agreed upon, pick up times are between 4:00 and 6:00 PM. We ask that you contact us at least two days prior to when you need your flowers so that we can allow plenty of time in our schedule to gather what you need.
WE CUT / WE DELIVER Option - $2.50 / stem
This is certainly our most expensive option; however, you will find that the flowers are still less expensive than what you would pay at a larger distributor . . . and, we can guarantee the flowers will be fresh and in good condition upon delivery! Flowers will be cut the day they are delivered to you. Because the farm keeps us very busy throughout the day, delivery times will vary, but we will try to work with you so that you have your flowers when you need them.
Note: Cost per stem includes delivery fee within a 25 mile radius from our farm. An additional delivery fee may be added to your order if we have to go beyond that distance.
Order minimum for this option: $75
