An Autumn Day on Wimbee Creek Farm
A day on Wimbee Creek Farm begins with gathering at the Flower Barn for morning coffee and freshly baked coffee cake. We’ll meet and greet and share stories of the farm’s history, flowers and friendship as we prepare for the day ahead. Designated work stations will be set up so that you can be comfortable and safely distanced to enjoy the day’s activities.
Our morning continues as we have a walking tour of the farm’s flower production areas. You’ll meet the chickens and of course Romeo, the wonder dog. We’ll share our experiences with you of growing flowers year round, we’ll talk about annuals and perennials, garden roses and more.
Returning to the Flower Barn, we’ll launch into a discussion of the seasonality of flowers as autumn gets underway and we think of the holidays ahead. We’ll have design tips and techniques as well as provide a design demonstration with instruction into our tried and true techniques for success. Then we will unleash you to create your own floral design in the vase provided for you, as we guide and help you as much as you’d like. We will be in the open barn and outdoors with responsible social distancing taken into consideration.
Lunch may be the best part! We provide a mostly vegetarian meal (sometimes we have pickled shrimp on the menu), and we are happy to take requests for special dietary considerations. Our menu is “farm to table” utilizing elements from our garden and our chickens eggs as much as possible. Lunch takes place under the oak trees by the water on the farmhouse back porch. It’s a lovely setting and we are so happy to have you join us there. Lunch also is prepared with social distancing measures in place as well.
I hope everyone will be able to spend a day with us here on the farm. We are getting geared up with beautiful blooms and seasonal dried elements to provide you with a day to remember.
All tools, flowers and containers are included for you to create your own floral arrangement to take home with you.
