U-pick Flowers

This week our U-pick flowers fields are open: Friday, August 16th and Saturday, August 17th, 9:00 am -4:00 pm.

We have an incredible abundance of flowers right now. Current blooms includes dahlias, China asters, roses, zinnias, Giant orange marigolds, yarrow, nigella, snapdragons, sunflowers, amaranth, celosia, strawflower, and bupleurum.

The fields are stunningly beautiful with Queen Anne’s Lace in bloom in the pasture and our produce and flower fields full and lush. The zinnias tower over most of our visitors. Bring a camera! The two picnic tables in our flower fields are the perfect place to pause. Our barn is stocked with our produce (including our big, beautiful heirloom tomatoes, pickling cucumbers and bulk bags of Genovese basil) and we have tables and supplies set up inside for bouquet making.

Bring a friend or family member or pick in the fields in quiet meditation. We have everything you need and our window this year for U-pick flowers will last just a few weeks.

We will make every attempt to list our summer U-pick hours in the event section of our website. You may always call, text or email to inquire about these hours or hours that we may choose to make available outside of those posted. Please consider sharing this post and spreading the word.

NOTE: This is where we work, live, love and play. We greatly value the importance of our quiet family time. So, as always, if the gate is closed, our farmstand, and farm, is closed to the public so that the three of us can enjoy family time together. Thank you for your understanding.

Flowers and produce in abundance!

Our flowers and produce are now in full swing and are available at our historic barn farm stand (barn built in 1903), which we opened in late June, and online at Kitsap Fresh weekly. The stand is open most days, between 9 am and 4 pm. When the gate is open, the farm stand is open. We have also opened up our flower fields for U-Pick and DIY buckets; simply call, email or complete our contact form to arrange a time.

Our current available flowers include: Long stem roses, snapdragons, zinnias, dahlias, sunflowers, bupleurum, chocolate lace flower, strawflower, utrecht blue wheat, amaranth, celosia, bachelor button, baby’s breath, calendula, orlaya, phlox, nicotiana, cosmos, globe amaranth, Persian cress, marigolds (including giants) and several herbs. We also have woodland greenery available in abundance.

Current produce available at our farm stand and through Kitsap Fresh: Green beans, heirloom tomatoes (beefsteak and cherry varieties), pickling and slicing cucumbers, Genovese and Thai basil, cabbage, carrots, broccoli, beets and garlic.

We have garlic braids, quart jars of dried calendula (to make your own dyes, salves, tinctures, etc), and dried flowers available exclusively at our farm stand. Soon, we will will also be selling our homemade jams and preserves.

In conjunction with Mark Doucette, we will be hosting a free seed saving class on August 10th. Stacy will be following-up with a free seed starting class in our heated greenhouse in January.

We will also be opening up our U-pick pumpkin patch on October 19th and 26th and will have complimentary fresh cider pressed from our apple trees and fall farm tours at that time. Sign up for our email newsletter to receive details!

Please consider passing this newsletter along to anyone who might be interested in knowing about on-going events on our farm. We are family-owned and operated and are grateful for the support of extended family, friends and our Work Share CSA volunteers who help each week. You may also follow-us on Instagram to see our most current produce and flower offerings.

Wishing you a vibrant and nourishing summer!

Warmly and with gratitude,
