GRAND RAPIDS, OH - The ability for Toledo-Area residents to exercise their green thumbs will be one step easier---even if they don’t grow a garden---with the arrival of the GardenView Flowers U-Pick Flower Field and Flower Stop at 11160 South River Road in Grand Rapids, OH on Saturday, July 13. After nearly 40 years of farming, designing wedding flowers and selling fresh-cut flowers bouquets to customers at the Toledo and Perrysburg farmers markets, the family-owned business is opening a special cutting garden on its farm to the public for u-pick flowers for the first time.
“Our customers are mesmerized by the beauty of the flowers we grow and have wanted to see the magic in action,” said Gerald Van Houtte, the founder of GardenView Flowers, who currently grows 30 acres of flowers and seasonal produce with his two daughters. “The U-Pick patch will give our loyal customers and people with a yearning for a bit of nature the chance to experience the farm.”
The U-Pick Flower Field will be open 8am to 7pm every Saturday and Sunday, July 13 through September. For $12, visitors will receive a 4” cup that they can fill with flowers from the U-Pick cutting garden. Customers will be able to gather stems of sunflowers, zinnias, dahlias, snapdragons, cosmos and more than 25 other flower varieties that are planted. When customers finish filling their container with stems of blooms, they’ll be wrapped up in perfect form for taking home. U-pick visitors and the public will also find a variety of vases, floral products, plants and pre-cut flower bouquets at the GardenView Flower Stop (just adjacent to cutting field; open daily 8am-8pm during the growing season).
“This will be a fun, family experience for people of all ages, said Gerald. “Even better, you get to take a piece of happiness from our farm home with you without doing any weeding, hoeing or fertilizing!”
