We’re so excited to add “U-Pick Flowers” to our available activities at the Farm! What’s better than bringing home a beautiful bouquet of local, organic flowers to brighten up your home (or a friend’s)? Getting to spend time outside, picking them yourself or with your family, with the backdrop of your favorite community farm!
Join us on Wednesdays or Thursdays and Saturdays to pick your own flowers with an easy sign-up and no-contact, outdoor experience.
Wright-Locke Farm specializes in seasonal, organic flowers. Varieties that you may encounter include: Zinnias, Calendula, Bachelor Buttons, Sunflowers, Red Amaranth, Cosmos, Borage.
