Frequently asked questions
Is your farm open every day?
We are a seasonal farm providing blooms generally from April through October.
We are closed to the public except for special events and when the flower stand is open. We update our social media via Facebook and Instagram when we have pop-up sales at the flower stand. We deliver locally and special occasion bouquets can be picked up on the flower stand whenever arranged.
Our CSA customers visit the stand on Thursdays for flower pick up. We also have a pickup site in Tiverton, RI, Sharon’s hometown.
What special events occur on the farm?
Such an exciting question!!! We are planning on hosting some classes this year including, Yoga and Blooms, Photography classes, and late summer U-Pick events!
What is a UPICK?
You pick events are fun because I get to sit back and let YOU play farmer! You get to walk through the blooms and choose your own flowers. You are encouraged to bring your own vessel and scissors to the event. But you can also rent snips and a bucket when you arrive at the farm and you will be provided a full refund for both for their return at the end of the journey. Flowers will be priced between $1 -$3 a stem.
One cutting area will include dahlias and zinnias. The other area will be a mixture of zinnias, cosmos, sunflowers, strawflowers and celosia. And whatever extra seeds I may have to plant in this area!!!
Do you do flowers for weddings? What other special events?
At this time, we do not do flowers for wedding with the exception of providing a wedding party with buckets of blooms for DYI (Do It Yourself) weddings or single cut blooms to complement the wedding. The best part- we have a lot of local flower farmers we can refer you to who we know to be excellent. Please also refer to the Floret Collective (link on the main page) to find one yourself.
We have provided flowers for the following events: bridal and baby showers, sweet 16 party, graduation party, business meetings and real estate open houses. We also provide several local businesses with a large flower arrangement each Monday during our growing season.
Special occasion arrangements are also available on our website to celebrate milestones such as anniversaries, birthdays and “just because” events. Those are our favorite!!!
Can I have a professional photo shoot on your farm?
Remember, we are a working farm which means we are trying to sell all our cut flowers!! So at times, you may not get the background you are looking for of luscious blooming beds that you see in magazines.
We do have a lot of mature perennial beds on the property that make a beautiful background. And this year- we are plotting two new areas of U-Pick flowers that should prove to be gorgeous!
Contact Sharon to schedule a walk-through before you book.
What is a CSA?
Community supported agriculture is a system that connects the producer and consumers within the food and flower system more closely by allowing the consumer to subscribe to the harvest of a certain farm. It is an alternative socioeconomic model of agriculture and food distribution that allows the producer and consumer to share the risks of farming.The model is a subcategory of civic agriculture that has an overarching goal of strengthening a sense of community through local markets. As a farmer with a seasonal crop, your CSA investment also helps me start the farm.
