You guys April has arrived, which means it’s time to plan your spring photo-op moments, I kid. But guys really, spring is here and it’s time to support your local farmers, grab your cameras and head out to my three favorite New England flower farms!
Tulips are actually one of my favorite flowers, so when this organic pick-your-own tulip farm opened in Rhode Island, I had to see it with my own eyes, with my tulip picking basket in hand. Now, this farm is the perfect excuse for a day trip to Rhode Island but don’t make plans too soon because they expect to open their gates in late April. I do highly suggest you purchase your tickets online in advance because they did, in fact, sell out last year, so make sure to snag a ticket here when they go on sale!
You might remember seeing Lavender Pond Farm in this blog post from a few years back. I’m a huge fan of lavender, whether I’m spraying it on my pillow before bed or throwing some lavender in my morning lattes; I’m all for it. I always plan an annual trip to Killingworth to this local farm to smell the beautiful lavender fields and to stock up on lavender goodies for, well basically, the entire year.
Nothing says summer like sunflowers, am I right? Now while these flowers don’t bloom until late July I had to include Buttonwood Farm on our flower farms list, because of how they give back to the community! Not only do they open their gorgeous 14-acres of sunflower fields up to the public, but they also donate 100% of proceeds from their sunflower sales to Make-A-Wish foundation. I mean, it’s a win-win for everyone and I highly suggested stopping for some of their homemade ice cream after your sunflower photo op.
Oh, and don’t forget to plan the perfect outfit for these photogenic farms while you’re at it. When I heard I was going to Charleston in the spring I knew there would be flowers on flowers, which meant I needed to invest in more gingham. Nothing says flower farm attire quite like a Dorothy inspired large gingham print. I’ve been trying to include more green hues in my closet, so I instantly purchased this wrap silhouette gingham print, mini dress when it popped up on my feed.
I mean, it’s perfect, right? Just imagine the green in a crisp purple field of lavender…Instagram worthy, to say the least. Anyway, I’d love to hear from you guys! Are there any flower farms I missed? If so leave the name and location of them below.
