Within Alberta are four farms and gardens dedicated to growing rows upon rows of fresh florals ready for u-pick. The u-pick flower farm experience in Alberta offers colourful florals, often those native to Alberta. You’ll encounter u-pick sunflowers, lilies, tulips, wildflowers, and more. These farms have staff onsite to help educate you on proper care or to provide styling tips for your bouquets.
The fun doesn’t have to end at the u-pick gardens either; these farms offer plenty of other activities to fill your day out like shopping, dining, photography, and exploring.
1. Farm Fresh Florals
Call ahead to book your individual, couple, or group outing with Farm Fresh Florals.

Their staff can also help you arrange the florals to look their best as a bouquet, and there is an on-site Farm Store, The Silo, where you can purchase gifts, vases, and other home décor.
