Can we bring a picnic lunch and stay a while?
We are working on an area that can be used for small gatherings for the summer of 2022. At this point in our garden development we do not have space for a family picnic in the blooms but our hope is to one day offer that as an event. We do not have any food or drink for sale, other than our offerings in the farmstand. If you are looking for a place to have lunch before or after your farm experience please just ask us and we are more than happy to give you details and even maps of how to get there.
Can I bring my kids?
Are always welcome to enjoy the flowers and our farm experience. We do pride ourselves on being a respite from the world outside our treeline so, please understand your children will be held to the same standard that you will be when visiting.
Can I bring people with me to cut flowers ?
Our goal is to provide the best experience we can for all of the visitors we have. In order to provide a space where you can enjoy the flowers and the entire garden, we limit the entrance to the field to those who have purchased a ticket to pick flowers. Each adult (over 13) who is not picking must purchase a visitors pass for $10 for the hour you are picking. Kids under 13 are free but must adhere to the same rules.
Do you allow pets on the property?
We are a pet free zone here at Stems Flower Farm. With the obvious exception of service animals we do not allow other pets to get out of their cars. We will gladly give you directions and a map to the local off leash park if you have brought your family member for the ride.
Do you allow large groups to come at the same time?
If you have a group (more than 6) of people who would like to come and experience the farm, please email us at Support@stemsflowerfarm.ca and we will be happy to put a package together for your experience.
What happens if the weather is bad the day I am coming?
We don’t have control over the weather here at the farm so here is a link to what you might expect to see when you arrive. We expect that in light rainy weather and slightly cooler temperatures that you will be here, but we fully understand and appreciate not wanting to pick flowers in the pouring rain. We will accept and acknowledge moving your appointment time due to rain. Simply go to the app more than 24 hours from your scheduled time and rebook for a new date.
Can I use your garden for a photo shoot?
Yes, we think it makes for great photos. If you are taking wedding, engagement, expectant mother, newborn, or family photos etc. or the person taking the photograph is unrelated to you, then a you need to book via the Professional Photographers guidelines on the website (more details below) If you are taking selfies of your experience cutting flowers we would appreciate it if you would consider tagging the location.
Do you have bees on the property?
We have several bee hives on the property that house thousands of bees. Honey bees are not aggressive under normal circumstances as they all have jobs to do and don’t really want to spend time with you. If they are provoked they can sting, but it is rare. We are also home to thousands of other flying and crawling and stinging things. If you are still coming for a farm experience that is great, please disclose the fact that you or anyone in your party is carrying an EpiPen and the extent of your allergy. We would feel better being able to help you. We do not have EpiPens here at the farm.
