How do I cut the flowers? Is there a correct way?
Yes, there is a best way to cut flowers! To keep the plants healthy, strong and fruitful, our field attendant will be a useful resource before you begin cutting. While we supply clippers, feel free to bring your own!
Do I need to pre-purchase tickets?
We always encourage pre-purchasing tickets to help us best plan your day but walk-ins are welcome when the field is open. Check www.ciderhill.com/cutting garden before you arrive. Once you do arrive, look for signage for check-in. It changes depending on weekdays vs. weekends.
What else do I need to know?
Little ones get so excited in the flower field and we LOVE how much they love to be surrounded by all the cool things. We do ask that our kiddos refrain from running, row hopping and handling flowers they don't plan on cutting. We do encourage lots of wonderful playtime on the main lawn and in the trike yard!
What if I have a 5 pass?
For our 5 pass holders, please make sure to bring that with you and present upon arrival. Valid for jar bouquets. Lost cards are not able to be refilled. To purchase a 5 pass when you arrive, visit the Farm Store for details.
