The Prettiest Flower Fields to Visit in Georgia

Though, technically speaking the summer ends in September, it's fair to say that summer is in full effect. There's only a few weeks left before it's over and school goes back. Whether this summer was filled with exotic trips and neighborhood parties, or not. It's okay. There is still tons to be grateful for and that's reason enough for celebration this season. 

Whether you are looking for blooms u-pick or u-pick-up for a party, a picture perfect backdrop or just something fun to look-at that's Covid friendly, there's more than a few beautiful places to go here in the Peach State. From beach side to mountainside — Enigma to Roswell and all of the places in between—here's where to go to find some of the prettiest flower fields in Georgia this year (to me). 

Yours Truly,

P.S. I've decided to make this a living list because I love to visit flower farms. Tell me more and I'll add it. Let's make it grow!

Posie Fields in Martin's Garden at Coleman Farm
From April to September, zinnia, bells of Ireland, sunflowers, anemones, astilbe, doc, honeysuckle, cockscomb and dozens of other organically grown varieties in 35 beds cover the front of the 7-acre spot in historical Roswell, Georgia. Owner Erin Champion and her husband, Jason along with her crew harvest and cut flowers into gorgeous bouquets. The small but robust mosaic is just outside of Atlanta and it's stunning. According Debra Prinzing's distinguished Slow Flowers Listings, they "are at the Alpharetta Farmers Market every Saturday morning and the Avalon every Sunday afternoon with our adorable Posie Flower Cart." You can also find them through subscriptions, workshops, and DIY buckets. The flowers are available to the public and florist wholesale.

Lucky to live just down the road from this delightful place and even luckier Erin allows me to help during the harvest season, I can't tell you how much joy the cultivated beauty of Posie Fields brings to so many.  Catch the full article in VoyageATL for a closer look into all the lovely in this farm's story. And, Blog the Burbs has more on this special seed to market florist in their post, too. 



Where to pick and by flowers in Georgia 
Whimsy Flower Farm

This family-run farm in the mountains of north Georgia offers fresh cut bouquets and florist wholesale. Owner Jennifer Flowers, yes her name is so fitting (I love it!), invites you to visit the store and farm just south of Blairsville. You can enjoy a dreamy day wandering a field of bright blooms like ranunculus and dahlia in up to 50 colors, the views are truly breathtaking. You can also call, email or visit the Union County Farmers Market to pick up a bouquet.

WilMor Farms
This Candler County farm is on 7th generation family land. Owners Mike and Rita Williams grow their flowers with their four children. These two UGA Alumni also grow stock, dianthus, snapdragons, strawflowers and campanula, and yarrow among a lot of other flowers. Rita gives a beautiful tour of the farm since I am being honest, but If you can't make it to their adorable place, you can find their flowers at the Augusta Market, Forsyth Farmer's Market in Savannah and in Statesboro. WilMor is Georgia Grown and certified American Grown and available  wholesale to local florists. Check out their full story in Scout Savannah, here.

 

Tipson Creek Farm

Timpson Creek Farm
This Clayton, Georgia farm is quietly nestled just off of Highway 76 with the Appalachian foothills as the backdrop. You may not see a soul at their sweet, self-serve farmstand, where the honor system of cash, check, or PayPal reigns. You can load up on flowers and herbs and veggies any day, sunup to sundown, or find their goods at the market at Osage Farms and at the Piedmont Park Farmer's Market in Atlanta.

Southern Grace Farms
Far from the crowds of any city, Southern Grace Farms in Enigma offers "u-pick" flowers that are run by my cousin, Jennifer McMillan. The 8th generation farm, near Tifton, is in  Berrien County and still run by family. The grounds are a sight for sore eyes when blanketed in the bright colors of the blueberries, strawberries, peaches, muscadines and those sunflowers!  Officially Georgia Grown, they have a store and offer attractions during the year like a car show. If you are lucky you might see Jennifer at the store and get some homemade Peanut Ice Cream. Tell her that her cousin, Christy sent you! :) 

 Red Oak Lavender Farm

Red Oak Lavender Farm
This Dahlonega farm is practically a miracle. According to Perri Ormont Blumberg in Southern Living Magazine, "This is a gorgeous spot to shoot special occasion photos for adults, we're also swooing for how darling little ones look in a lavender ensemble, playing amongst the fields." This is one place I haven't seen in person but according to their website, owners David and Tina are "able to remember and honor our grandparents" through growing the many stems of cufflowers including Allum, Dahlia, Larkspur, Tulips, Allium, Delphinium, Phlox, Stock, Coneflower, Penstemon Yarrow, Russian Sage, Lupine, Wisteria, and Loofas and more. I, too, feel connected through flowers with loved ones I have lost like my grandmother and dad so that's reason enough to add this to my list.  Find out more about the reasons you need to visit this gorgeous Lumpkin County place in Country Living Magazine.
