U-PICK ZINNIAS

INFORMATION

  • The variety of zinnias we are growing this year are called California Giants!

  • These flowers produce stems as tall as 4 ft. with large 5” blooms, making This variety ideal for U-Pick flowers.

  • Each & every stem is unique & lovely! There are so many different colors, sizes, & shapes that you will see when you go out to the beautiful flower field.

  • Pricing will be by the bloom, or by the bucket. If you choose to purchase a “Bucket of Blooms” on Ticketleap as an add on, the price is $20.00 + tax. If you purchase it at the door, it will be $25.00 + tax.

  • Each BLOOM, not STEM, will be $2.00. For example - if you pick a stem that has 3 blooms on it, that stem will be $6.00. If you purchase the Bucket of Blooms on Ticketleap or at the gate, you will be given a ticket upon arrival to redeem your bucket at the pick-up stand before you head out to the flower field. This same stand will be where you purchase your blooms after you pick them out of the field. Make sure to stop here before you head out to the zinnias to get a plastic bag filled with water or your bucket filled with water – so they can stay vibrant & fresh while you pick!

  • You are able to walk to the flower field, or take our Hayrack Ride out to it. The pick-up for the Hayrack Ride will be close to our Barrel Train.

  • The zinnia field will be handicap accessible! Wheel chairs will be able to fit in the paths, & we also have handicap Hayrack Rides accessible upon request. Please let us know if this is something that will need to be accommodated.

  • When you arrive to the field, we will have a stand where you are able to get your cutters for picking.

  • We will be assigning rows for the U-Pick. If you are not here for the U-Pick & just here for the stunning photos you will be able to capture, you will not be assigned rows, you will be free to roam. Please respect the flowers & don’t trample on them, & stay in the paths.

  • When picking zinnias, you will want to cut either at the base or where the stems branch off, to promote more growth for that stem! Make sure they get into the water source as soon as possible.

Have FUN, pick some pretty ones, & make sure to get some photos & tag us on social media!

butterfly release

information

  • The butterflies we will have will be Painted Ladies! They will be coming from a small butterfly farm in Massachusetts called Butterflies & Blueberries!

  • They are the most widely distributed butterfly in the world. Painted Lady adults can cover up to 100 miles per day & reach a speed of nearly 30 miles per hour.

  • Butterflies will not be available for reservation on Thursdays & Fridays, only Saturday’s & Sundays. You will need to reserve your butterfly by Wednesday of each week for Saturday or Sunday.

  • Think NEW & FRESH when you see any red spots on the envelopes. This is NOT blood! This is a sign of brand new butterflies – the red liquid is merconium. It is excess fluid that was not used during wing formation.

  • Upon arrival & check in at admissions, you will receive a ticket to redeem your butterfly at the pick-up station, located by the Hayrack Ride.

  • You are welcome to release your butterfly at your leisure, or partake in releasing your butterfly during our big release happening at 11am Saturday’s and Sunday’s!

Have FUN & make sure to get photos with your butterfly & the flowers - & tag us!
