There is something special about picking your own flowers. Wandering through flower fields and being surrounded by thousands of gorgeous blooms is a unique experience. And the pictures that you can take are just amazing!
If you are ready for a new kind of outdoor adventure, visit one of these U-Pick Flower Farms in the Asheville area (including Hendersonville, Brevard, Etowah, Barnardsville and Fairview).
Never Ending Flower Farm
Location: 152 Tom Harris Trail, Barnardsville NC 28709
We absolutely love The Never Ending Flower Farm just outside of Asheville in Barnardsville. Just as the name implies, this family-owned farm has flowers for every growing season between the last frost of Spring and the first frost of Fall.
We have visited during tulip picking time at Easter and enjoying the last weeks of dahlias and autumn flowers in September. With mountain views and plenty of rows full of a variety of flowers, this U-Pick farm is just stunning!
A covered shed pavilion can be rented to host a small party, dinner, elopement or wedding with views overlooking the flowers.
The Never Ending Flower Farm is very active on Instagram and Facebook, constantly updating the status of flower fields, what’s blooming and how the weather is impacting visitors. Be sure to check them out online before heading to the farm.
Flying Cloud Farm
Location: 1860 Charlotte Highway, Fairview, NC 28730; (828) 768-3348
This flower farm and farmstead is just outside Asheville on the way to Lake Lure and Black Mountain. Not only does the road-side farm stand sell pre-cut flowers, you can also purchase produce, too.
A variety of flowers are available from mid-June to October. Pay for a cup or bucket and then wander through the fields with pruners for cutting.
We have loved visiting these flower fields many times. See our Flying Cloud Farm review to learn how special it is.
Sideways Farm and Brewery
Location: 62 Eade Road, Etowah, NC 28729; (828) 595-4001
Sipping on beer and picking wildflowers? Yes, please!
Sideways Farm and Brewery in Etowah is proud about bringing beer production back to its agricultural roots, when carbonation was made from wildflower honey and co-existing with nature.
Their U-Pick flower farm is just as natural, using only sustainable growing methods for flowers such as dahlias and sunflowers.
Bridal Flower U-Pick Experiences are available with a private visit to the farm to pick wedding flowers, along with enjoying Sideways Brewery beer.
You might even see the farm animals wandering around depending on where they are grazing.
Open only Friday afternoons, and Saturday-Sunday.

However, in mid-July sunflowers are available for U-Pick, along with a variety of fruits. Ten varieties of sunflowers are available, with some reaching heights up to 9 feet tall!
We have also found U-Pick Dahlias at the farm in early October.
Jeter Mountain Farm has very limited hours to the public, and usually only on weekends. Be sure to check their website or call ahead to confirm they are open.
Johnson Family Farm
Location: 1202 Kanuga Road, Hendersonville, NC 28739; (828) 202-1745
