Photo Policy

We welcome local photographers to the farm to take photos and use our berry “gourd”eous farm as a background for your photos all year!
Please read this in its entirety before planning your visit:
  • Photographers may come to Fall on the Farm or Strawberry Days for photoshoots. Everyone in your party must purchase an admission ticket (clients and photographers)
  • Please, NO excessive photography team, equipment, tools, props or other gear outside of a small camera bag that can be carried easily through the farm. This is to ensure no disruption of other patrons while they visit.
  • Please, no solicitation or sales of photography packages/shoots while on the premises with guests you are not working with. Any photographers who are seen self-promoting/selling their photography services will be asked to leave immediately, with no refund on their admission.
  • Our sunflower field will begin blooming by late September/early October. Please do not cut sunflowers as props.
  • When thinking about times to schedule your clients, be aware that admission is ONLINE ONLY. Tickets are available in 15-minute intervals. Weekend tickets may sell out well in advance.
  • Please note that festival weekends are busy and will have a lot of people who may be in the background of your photos. Please be kind and courteous to all guests, and don’t let the photo sessions disrupt their experience.
  • We will NOT be offering any special “golden hour” times outside of regular business hours. We will have two special events that take place in the evening in the fall, and Pups, Pints, and Pumpkins. There will also be additional evening events throughout the year like popup u-pick evenings. You may purchase admission to any of these events along with your clients to come and take photos. Same rules above apply.
Feel free to tag us on social media! Our Instagram is @bloomsandberries
You can also Geo-Tag when visiting, and we might share your photos with our followers (with your permission)!
If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at social@bloomsandberries.com

Dog Policy

Dogs are not allowed in the U-Pick fields due to food safety concerns.  Friendly dogs on a 6 ft non-retractable leashes are welcome in our public areas.  Dogs cannot be reactive or stressed due to situations found on a farm or in public places. This includes but is not limited to: animals, kids, dogs etc. Please note, we cannot allow dogs on the hayride due to the close proximity to other guests.  Some years, dogs are also not permitted in the corn maze as the hayride is the only way to access the corn maze depending on where the maze is growing that year.   Additionally dog handlers must be adults and only one dog per handler please.  We also cannot watch or “sit” your dog while you are “hayriding”.  Thank you for helping us keep our farm dog friendly.   
Dogs are welcome to Fall on the Farm, but we have a few guidelines:
  • Dogs must be on a non-retractable leash, no longer than 6-feet.
  • Dogs must be well-behaved and friendly with other dogs, humans, and farm animals.
  • Certain activities such as hayrides & bounce pad are not dog friendly.
  • Handlers must be age 18+, one dog per handler.
  • Dogs are not allowed on the hayrides due to the safety of the dogs and other riders on the hayride.
  • Dogs will not be able to go out to the corn maze and pumpkin patch since the only way out to these areas is on a hayride.
Blooms & Berries reserves the right to remove any dog not offering a great experience to our guests, team, or animals.

Are you picking today?2024-03-22T12:51:59+00:00

Strawberry season is Mid May – Early June. Blueberry season is Mid-Late June. Blackberry season is Mid July. During that time we send text messages out to announce berry picks.  Please see our U-Pick pages to sign up for quick messages when fruit is ripe.  (links for the four u-pick pages) Also, be sure to sign up for Berry Picking Updates and we’ll let you know when the crop is ready to pick!

Why does your field close sometimes?2024-03-22T12:52:49+00:00

Sometimes we pick out of fruit and we need to rest the field to ripen for another pick later in the week. We try very hard to manage the field for the greater good, and sometimes closing a field that is picked out is the best option. This makes the most of your visit by ensuring when you come there are plenty of ripe, sweet, delicious berries to take home!

Can I pick Blueberries?2024-05-08T15:16:58+00:00

We are working feverishly to increase our blueberry crop. To learn how to get a picking ticket visit our Blueberry U-pick page. Be sure to sign up for Berry Picking Updates and we will keep you posted on the progress of our crop!

For the Spring/Summer Season, adults (ages 15+) do not need to pay admission for the Play Yard and Petting Farm. Please note, this is only for the Play Yard & Petting Farm. Adults will need to pay for events or U-Picks during the summer as well as any ticketed event.

What should I wear?2024-05-08T15:16:26+00:00

We are an authentic working farm with uneven terrain and are of course susceptible to recent weather conditions. Gym shoes are always recommended over flip flops or heels, but hiking boots are really the best, especially if it’s rained recently, you plan on getting lost in the corn maze, etc.

Are you wheelchair / stroller accessible?2024-05-08T15:16:20+00:00

We are working on becoming more wheelchair accessible, but currently wheelchairs need to navigate turf and gravel. In the Fall, it is very difficult to take wheelchairs or strollers in the corn maze. Our Market Barn & Garden Center feature concrete floors so navigation is easier in those areas.

What if it’s raining?2024-05-08T15:16:14+00:00

We are open and operate in a lite rain or mist but will close down attractions during inclement weather.  We do our best to contact ticketed attendees via email or text in the event of any change due to weather.

When do Sunflowers Bloom?2024-05-08T15:16:08+00:00

Our Sunflower field is planted to bloom the very first weekend or two of Fall On The Farm. We typically aim for bloom starting around Sept 15th-20th but weather often can move bloom forward or back. Always check our Fall On The Farm Page for current sunflower info. If you prefer, sign up for Sunflower field updates.

In the Fall, what time is your last hayride?2024-05-08T15:16:01+00:00

30 minutes before close

In the Fall, what time is the last corn maze entrance?2024-05-08T15:15:52+00:00
