You Can Pick Your Own Flowers & Produce At This Massive Farm In Arizona
Have you ever heard the saying "Spring showers bring May flowers?" Well, we have and we've got good news. You can pick your own flowers at this u-pick farm in Arizona. The best part? It's a year-round affair.
Schnepf Farms is a pasture that seems to have it all. At certain times throughout the year, you can walk through peach blossom orchards, attend festivals, pumpkin patches, and more.
You can stroll through the garden between Thursday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. All of their produce is grown naturally without the use of pesticides, which makes this a great place to purchase containers of edible flowers for only $4.
Some seasonal vegetables you can expect to find include collard greens, turnips, fennel, swiss chard, green onions, beets, and lettuce.
Prices on produce depend on what you're buying.
The one thing we're really excited about is their u-pick flowers portion of the farm.
Narcity has reached out to Schnepf Farms for more information on what's available for picking, but according to their Instagram post the following florals were available as of January 4, 2020:
sunflowers (limited supply), snapdragons, bachelor buttons/cornflower, zinnias, marigolds, dahlias, blue strawflowers, and lavender.
You can expect to pay anywhere between $1 for four blooms or $1 for each stem.
No matter the case, you'll have a grand time strolling through them. If you prefer to do less work, opt to purchase a freshly cut bouquet instead.
Before you head out, be sure to pop by their bakery and store. They sell everything from peach syrup and salad dressing to rosemary olive oil.
Whatever items you find in the garden, they're sure to be the staple of any meal or tabletop decor.
