Opening Day for Flowers!

Hello!  Debby, here guestblogging with some exciting news about our self-serve U-Pick flowers!  We will be opening this Friday (June 29th)!  We grow over 20 cut flower varieties including four kinds of zinnias, 6 kinds of celosia, sunflowers, and more.  We'll be open daily from 7am-7pm and provide clippers and buckets for you to use (although people with their own clippers and buckets have been known to come earlier and later).  Business will continue into the early fall, or until the flowers stop blooming.

The price for flowers is $10 per bucket ($12 if you take one of our yellow buckets with you when you go).  There is a money box next to the stand, but it doesn't give change so exact payment is required (cash or local checks).  We run our stand on the honor system and thank you in advance for your honesty.  

Children are welcome, and we find that many of them enjoy wandering the fields in search of butterflies!  This is a great way for the whole family to spend some time outside on a beautiful summer day.  Here are some words from our past customers about how much they have enjoyed the experience!  Caution: It can get quite hot over there so don't forget to bring a water bottle.

Snapdragons, celosia, and our first zinnias are blooming now, with sunflowers to follow in a couple of weeks.    Don't forget to bring your camera and post a picture or check-in on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/BrittanyHollowFarm)!

Do you have any questions?  Feel free to call us at 845-758-FARM or email us at brittanyhollowfarm@gmail.com.  See you in the flower patch!
