Simple Leaf Farm (Dryden)

They do speical ticketed u-picks/flower nights here, but the farm stand is usually open on Saturdays so you can pop in at will too! You won’t be able to do u-pick on a Saturday, but you can still grab a beautiful bouquet.

This is one of my favorite spots because the owners are super nice, and their farm and house is just so darn beautiful. I want to live there. She told me that people stop there randomly all the time just take pictures of their home.

Flower Night on the Farm (Advance Ticket Required): 9/11 & 9/13 @6pm; $55/person

Experience the farm in all its beauty – blooming fields and sunset skies. Tour the farm. Wander the flower fields and pick the blooms you love. Design your own gorgeous arrangement to take home. Finish the evening with dessert and watch the setting sun.

Whether you come alone or with a group of friends, it’s sure to be an evening to remember.

Ankley Family Farm (Imlay City)

This farm is beautiful, and they always have tons of flowers for u-pick! They have sunflower fields all season long too because they stagger their planting!

You can stop by anytime during their open hours for u-pick.

They also do several special ticketed events too including:

U-Pick:

We’re excited to welcome you to our u-cut flower field of over 20,000 plants! From Amaranth to Zinnias and many other varieties, you’ll find something you love. Dahlias and sunflowers are seasonal favorites! Enjoy abundant pollinators as you explore over one acre of cut flowers. 

For $15, you can fill a quart jar with any flowers you like. We provide the jars and the scissors. If you do bring your own scissors please sanitize them before cutting in our field. Field and farm rules are listed below and we will have suggestions for cutting flowers listed in the farm stand. Never cut flowers before? You’ll be just fine! You can review some tips below. 

We do accept recycled jars and offer a free packet of flower food for jars that are left at the farm stand to be recycled. 

Buckets for picking flowers are available for $60. This is the best option if you have your own vessels that you plan to use. We calculate that you can fit about 8 u-cut jars worth of flowers in the bucket. The bucket is 2 gallons in size. You can keep the bucket, there is no deposit on it. 

If you’re visiting the cut flower field only for professional photography the admission fee is $2 per person (children age 5 and under are free).

Detroit Abloom (Detroit)

A Cut Flower Farm & Outdoor Wellness Garden

Dahlia Fest this Saturday, 9/10/23 from Noon-6pm.

Tickets are $5 at the door, and they’ll have Wood-Fired Pizza.

We started Detroit Abloom as a Cut-Flower Farm with a Kresge Grant. While we have journeyed into other areas, flower farming is our roots. We love to grow sustainable, no spray flowers. From Ranunculus and Tulips in April until the Dahlias are finished at the first hard frost!

Detroit Abloom is a model land-use demonstration project, based on using cut flower farming and the creation of native plant sanctuary gardens to re-purpose vacant blighted land. Several years ago, Tom and Nancy worked with volunteers to clean up vacant blighted lots in their Jefferson Chalmers neighborhood, when they thought of a different approach. Gradually the idea evolved that by using cut flower farming to transform vacant land, they could turn blight into exceptional beauty and make places of sanctuary for the benefit of the community. Moreover, Detroit Abloom has evolved to become an outdoor wellness garden that works with health practitioners to offer holistic workshops, classes, and programs to help enhance the surrounding community’s health and beyond.
