Purchase your ticket in advance: Each person must purchase an individual ticket. This is required in order for us to track attendance and ensure social distancing. Tickets will be available one week prior to the event. Check Facebook and Instagram for announcements.
Plan Ahead: Guests are expected to bring their own:
Appropriate shoes and clothing - Remember, this is a working farm!
Sunscreen and bugspray
Find your way here! We are located at 457 Ridge Farm Road, Bellefonte, PA 16823. Please be aware our driveway is a 2-mile long gravel road shared with our neighboring farmers. Drive with extreme caution. Once you arrive, follow signs to the grass parking area
Grab your bucket and start snipping! Admission includes a keepsake bucket to collect your blooms in. These hold a surprising amount of flowers, about 3 bouquets worth! You-Pick Patches will be clearly marked. We will also have pre-cut flowers and foliage to add to your haul, if desired. See tips below.
Take your time admiring and snapping photos. Share on social media by tagging @rootedfarmstead and using the #rootedfarmstead hashtag
FLOWER CUTTING AND CARE TIPS
Cut stems long (don't worry, you won't hurt the plant!) A rule of thumb is the length from your elbow to your hand
Snip off all of the leaves that will be below the waterline. Leaves will decompose in the water and reduce the life of your blooms
Place the vase out of direct sunlight
Refresh your vase with cool, fresh water daily and snip the stems slightly every 2-3 days
All guests must properly wear a mask and maintain social distancing between yourself and other visitors.
All guests must have a pre-paid ticket (sorry, no walk-ins!)
Please leave your pets at home
