Editor’s note: this post first appeared on my blog about 10 years ago! Over the years, we have returned to Maple Acres farm several times and they still offer pick your own zinnias AND frequently run sales on them! Check out the info below on what you’ll find at the farm.
Pick Your Own Flowers at Maple Acres Farm
Lily Bean and I made our very first trip to Maple Acres Farm (located in Plymouth Meeting, PA) on Wednesday. I kept seeing a slew of Facebook friends mentioning it and wanted to see what it was like. I was especially excited to go pick our own flowers in their vast field of bright blooms. That night I had plans to have dinner at a friend’s house and a fresh flower bouquet seemed like the perfect thing to take (in addition to brownies, of course).
Maple Acres Farm Location: 2656 Narcissa Road, Plymouth Meeting, PA 19462
We arrived to find the big produce stand area on one side of the driveway and this immense, sprawling flower field on the other side.
Cut Your Own Zinnias
The flowers are separated by rows and you can bring your own bucket and scissors or borrow theirs (you must leave a small cash deposit or your car keys to borrow).
The price for pick your own flowers? 10 stems for $4
This is the typical price at the beginning of flower cutting season (early-mid June). As the season goes on and more and more flowers are ready to be cut, the price goes down. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for updates on specials. This summer then price has gone from 10 stems for $4 to 50 stems for $5 to currently (August) 100 stems for $6!
Lily Bean and I marched through a row of flowers, filling our bucket and of course stopping for a few pictures along the way.
We filled our big bucket with beautiful flowers and paid for them at the register.
I just loved picking our own flowers! Such a simple pastime- what a great way to spend a summer morning. I’m really looking forward to some of their other “you-pick” offerings throughout the year: strawberries and blueberries.
After that, we headed over to the produce area.
You are not going to believe this.
Seems there was a bumper crop of tomatoes. They were literally just trying to get rid of them. We got an ENTIRE CASE OF TOMATOES FOR JUST $5!!
We also found great prices on green bell peppers and eggplant (all of which were 3 for $1). We paid $8 for everything pictured below.
Even if you don’t live near Plymouth Meeting, PA, I can’t recommend local farm stands enough. Not only are you supporting small businesses and local families when you purchase, but the farm fresh produce’s quality is almost always exceptional. There is nothing like eating a tomato right off the vine, or enjoying corn right after it has been cut.
