Lily Festival

Lily Festival July 31st & Aug 1st 11-5
I feel like I am in one of those home reno TV shows where every thing needs to come together before a given deadline, but it seems like most of the work is done during the last few long days. Our Crew has been working hard over the past couple weeks renovating our farm store, sprucing up the u-pick fields, making tons more signs. It looks as though all will be ready for opening day July 31st.

This year the Lily festival is also going to be the grand opening of the farm. Our U-pick flower & Vegetable fields are just getting started with Thousands of Lilies. Over the next 2 weeks more vegetables & Flowers will begin to be ready for u-pick 7 days a week.

We have a few new additions to the farm this year including Red, our miniature horse and Flow, a pot bellied pig. Be sure to say hi and welcome them to the farm.

I counted today and there were over 15 different colours of lilies in bloom. I also saw the first of the zinnias, a great collection of monkshood, ladies mantel and many more flowers in the u-pick.

Although you can visit the farm throughout August, the first 2 weekends are the days we offer our U-pick vase deal. How it works is that you purchase the vase from our farm store, then pick as many flowers as you can fit in the vase.
