How does it work?
We provide you with a yellow 1-gallon bucket for you to fill with flowers from our fields for $20. We accept cash (exact amount) or check only. We do not accept credit cards, Venmo, etc. You may reuse the yellow bucket on subsequent visits for only $15. Please read our covid precautions below.
We are excited to open our flower fields for people to enjoy this summer! It is important to observe the following new procedures to keep everyone safe.
We offer pick your own flowers daily from 7 am to 7 pm through Labor Day. Check our Facebook page to see our hours after Labor Day. We have 3 acres of flowers and are located on Route 9, just north of Rhinebeck, on the Red Hook/Rhinebeck town line.
Darryl and Debby Mosher (with help from their children and more recently, their grandchildren) have been farming in Rhinebeck, NY for 35 years. Son Brendan and daughter-in-law Kim grew flowers for their wedding during the summer of 2008. Ever since, we've been growing flowers.
Each year, many visitors come to wander through the fields, spend time in nature, and leave with a beautiful bucket of flowers to enjoy!
DIY Weddings and Parties
Each year, many bridal parties come and pick for showers, rehearsal dinners, and the main event! Here are some suggestions.
1. If possible, please come by a week before your event and pick a test bucket. You can see what is available, which flowers holds up best, and what colors combinations you like.
2. Plan to pick your flowers 1-3 days before the event. Flowers will be easier to work with if you let them rest overnight before arranging.
3. Plan to pick in the morning or late afternoon for the best quality of flowers. Avoid the heat of the day.
4. Plan to pick into our 1-gallon pails. If you buy 5 or more buckets, you can use your own containers to transport, and save money. People have used coolers, wash tubs, and larger buckets to transport.
5. Let me know ahead of time when you plan to come, how many people plan to pick and how many buckets you need. That way, I can make sure you have plenty of water, buckets and scissors. I may also be able to offer some advice! (845) 417-7099
Sounds like fun, but you're not sure about arranging? Hire a floral designer to help!

How do I make your flowers last longer?
Picking during the morning or evening hours when the weather is cool can make flowers last longer.
Place the flowers directly into the water in your bucket.
Change water daily.
Re-cut stems every couple of days.
Keep flowers out of the sun and heat.
There is a homemade preservative recipe and some other great tips here.
Are your flowers available for special events?
Yes - each summer our flowers appear in bouquets, centerpieces, boutonnieres, corsages, and arrangements at weddings and other events. We are mainly a pick-your-own operation, so our flowers are best-suited for folks interested in a DIY event or who have a florist who can do the picking and/or arranging. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to email us at email@example.com.
Who took all of these lovely photos?
Summer Mosher is our photographer. Thank you, Summer!
