If you haven't been to Burnside Farms yet - NOW is the time to go! Their Festival of Spring is now open daily and there is no better place to appreciate this wonderful spring season than a trip to their beautiful flower farm in Haymarket, Virginia. They call it Holland in Haymarket and I can see why, with over 5 acres of flower fields to frolic in, Burnside Farm is now the largest pick your own flower farm in the country!
I took my three children there after school the other day and we had the best time! The Flower Farm itself is pretty simple- no slides or amusements, no actual barn to walk through or tractors for them to climb on… just a field of flowers. Right now, the Daffodils and Tulips are in full bloom. There are rows and rows of colorful flowers to walk through, my kids and had never seen anything like it! They offer baskets to hold the flowers and you pay for each flower you pick, so pick carefully! I let each of my three children pick four each and they had so much fun searching for their four perfect flowers.
Afterwards, we snipped and wrapped our flowers into beautiful bouquet to take home to dad. They were so proud! I love fun, outdoor family adventures like this- and you will too! We took a million pictures, had a fun time and I highly recommend it!
Ps. Make sure to buy some local raw honey- the owner of the farm is also a beekeeper!
