Pick Your Own Perfect Bouquet at These Flower Farms

Looking for a unique experience to share with your kids this summer? How about a trip to a flower farm where they can pick their own flowers? We were surprised too, but it’s a real thing and a fun way to introduce children to the workings of a farm.

Petting Farms and Animal Farms for Kids to Visit »


Three Acre Farm

Three Acre Farm in Byron Center has everything from asters to zinnias and owners Lori and John Hernandez pride themselves on offering a family friendly experience

“It’s fully fenced so kids are safe and can’t wander off,” says Lori.

“We really wanted to have a place we would’ve brought our kids when they were younger. We have a playhouse for kids to play in. It’s just our little family farm but we have a lot of fun.”

Here you can find more than 60 varieties of flowers including the flower that got the farm started: the dahlia. Blooming begins in July and the picking season runs from July to mid-October.

How Does it Work?

Head to the farm stand at Three Acre Farm to pick up scissors and a bucket for the treasures you collect. When you’re finished, tally up your total and pay.

Hours are typically offered in the mornings for good reason.

“If you cut flowers in the middle of the day, they will wilt,” explains Lori.

Flowers are seasonal so if your daughter has her heart set on sunflowers, make sure you check the calendar to determine the best time to visit.

Things to Know Before you Go

  • Wear clothes you’re comfortable with getting dirty.
  • Kids may want to pull out their rainboots for trudging through the fields.
  • Bring water to stay hydrated while walking the fields.
  • Cash or check only.
