Flowers and Summer Fun
Thank you to everyone who joined us this summer for our Flower and Summer Fun Events. We were so excited to have so many folks interested in picking flowers. We hope to provide U-Pick Flowers again next summer. Check back with us in June 2021. To end our flower season on a high note we will be sponsoring a Flowers for Charity Event to support Bob's Buddies, (www.bobsbuddies.com) a local pediatric brain tumor foundation during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Come Saturday 9/19 from 8a-4p to pick some beautiful flowers for a donation of your choosing. No amount is too small as it will go to help find a cure for pediatric brain tumors. Use our flower picking container or bring your own. We do have some scissors for cutting but does help to bring your own clippers.
Hope to see you Saturday!
As we all know, 2020 has been an interesting and challenging year thus far. Even so, we have moved forward with many of our continuous improvement plans for our family farm. One such plan is to experiment with growing flowers. We have added a small but pretty, well I am biased, little flower patch at the farm. Most of the flowers have been grown from seed, and some of those seeds I couldn’t see without my glasses! It has certainly been a learning process, but that is half the fun. Why flowers? Well I love fresh flowers or just any pretty natural cutting to bring in the house and most of our friends share that love, so we thought, maybe more folks would enjoy locally grown fresh flowers. This year was all about learning and feasibility of growing flowers on a bigger scale that could eventually accommodate a U-Pick flower patch. Feasibility has to do with if we can do the work to grow flowers successfully but also to figure out consumer interest. UPDATE: Starting Saturday Aug 15 we will open the flower patch for U-pick. All flowers are in full bloom and definitely can handle visitors picking flowers.
So, this year we will be opening on Saturday mornings to sell our flowers, herbs, etc at our Christmas shop (the red barn). Visitors will have the opportunity to collect the flowers individually from our pre-cut selection (or U-Pick when open) or purchase already arranged flower bouquets. The amount and type of flowers available will vary from week to week so we will try to make sure we post updates to our Jordan Lake Christmas Tree Farm Facebook page. Remember, this is a learning experience so we don’t know how long the available supply that day will last, so please be patient with us.
While shopping for flowers we will have some wonderful seasonal items for purchase:
